    Whoa bro, watch your step! This is electrical engineer Bruce Campbell's (HAIL TO THE KING, BABY) home. It's a retired Boeing 727-200 he parked on his wooded lot in Oregon. No word if he wears a oxygen mask during intercourse, but it would be a shame if he didn't try it at le... / Continue →

    Wingman is an upcoming dating app for meeting people at the airport and on your flight. It's kind of like Tinder or Grindr, except with more potential for sex in an airplane lavatory. You ever gotten a handjob under a blanket after the beverage cart passes? LEGIT. You just... / Continue →

    This is the $45,000 conference table made from a retired 747's General Electrics engine. Only the nacelle of the engine though, so it's not like you could use it to build your own plane if you bought one. WHICH FOR $45,000 YOU SHOULD. Man, could you imagine investing your ha... / Continue →

    This is a motorcycle powered by a 150hp Rotec Radial R3600 airplane engine. It was pieced together by German mechanic Frank Ohle, who, God willing, has future plans to bolt wings to the thing and speed it straight off a cliff and into our hearts. Or a ravine. Over the cours... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a Swiss Airbus A340 landing at the Zurich airport in heavy fog. Which, as far as fog goes, is probably airplane pilots' least favorite kind. Me? It's my favorite because it makes sneaking around the neighborhood playing ninja assassin easier. Thanks... / Continue →

    This is a video of a guy flying an R/C plane choreographed to classical music. It's really impressive but no screencap is going to do it justice, so you're just going to have to trust me and watch it. Or not -- I mean since when did trust ever become an important part of a fu... / Continue →

    This is a video from some lady standing around on a runway in Texas when a biplane swoops down out of the sky and almost touches her. Amazingly, her screaming is the best part of the whole video, which is kind of hard to believe because when is screaming ever good? I'm only u... / Continue →

    This is a video of a Boeing 767 making an emergency landing in Warsaw after its landing gear failed to deploy. There were 230 people on board, but nobody was injured. Soaked in shit and piss, yes. It appears the Polish Lot aircraft, en route from New York, circled the city t... / Continue →

    Seen here soliciting a wave from a young passenger, a member of a Paris airport's holographic staff welcomes flyers aboard their flight. GOOD -- I hate those real workers. *stuffing little brother in suitcase* In Paris, one major airport is piloting a test program that repla... / Continue →

    Shotgun! Ever wanted to see four Hummers get sucked out the back of an airplane in the dead of night over Iraq? Relax bro, I've got you covered. Unless it's your privates cause your swim trunks ripped or a bar fight, in which case we've never met and you don't even look fami... / Continue →

    Just like THIS GUY who did the same thing with a Lamborghini, Dan Reeves spent nine years building a RV-7A airplane kit in his basement. Theeeeeen had a contractor dig up his yard and remove a basement wall to pull it out. Why? Because his wife is a dream-crusher, that's why... / Continue →

    This is a video of last week's Discovery shuttle launch as seen from a commercial flight departing Orlando, FL. It's pretty amazing to see. Like being duct-taped to a computer chair so you can't move and then having your eyes taped open while coworkers take turns throwing thi... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like Rodney Dangerfield's lovechild, a man explains Samsung's experiment to drop 200 paper airplanes from 36,500 meters (119,750 feet or ~22 miles) above Germany. Each plane contains a Samsung SD card with messages uploaded from people who visite... / Continue →

    Right -- first you take away the complimentary peanuts, and now my legroom? THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! What we need are affordable jetpacks. Here's a harrowing image: the SkyRider design for new cheapo airplane seats. Clearly designed with cramming as many people as humanly possibl... / Continue →

    Steven Slater, seen here stroking a flying phallus, is a 20-year veteran of flight attendant-ry who just couldn't take it anymore. So what did he do? What any self-respecting attendant of the skies would: jumped out of a moving plane. One passenger stood up to fetch belongin... / Continue →

    Raytheon provided a public showing of their Laser Close-In Weapon System (CIWS) at the recent Farnborough Airshow, demonstrating just how the blaster can be used to shoot robotic death-planes out of the sky by turning an unmanned drone into an unmanned drone crashing into the o... / Continue →

    I'm not even gonna lie: I've never made love on an airplane. Something about trying to get it on in the tiny bathroom an overweight businessman just spent twenty minutes vacating the fast food from his bowels in makes my penis want to shrivel up and hide in an overhead bin. B... / Continue →

    Dogfight as in airplane battle, not dogfight as in I'm a peenerless d-bag who likes watching pitbulls bite each other. Which, fun fact: if I'm ever diagnosed with terminal cancer I'm coming for you. Me making you chew on a gun aside, this is an awesome jet-fighter scene creat... / Continue →

    This is a video of two enema bags in an airplane doing a nosedive so the dog in the back experiences weightlessness. I can't tell if he liked it or not, but my guess is no. Dogs, as a rule, like their feet on the ground and their tongues on their privates. And can you blame ... / Continue →

    This is an Google Maps aerial shot of the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group (AMARG), AKA "The Boneyard", a 2,600 acre facility that serves as the final resting place for over 4,200 US aircraft (I'm gonna go steal a Warthog!). Located in Tucson, Arizona, on the... / Continue →
