    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 →

    Remember Rick Hamel's 'Mythical Beast' R/C fire-breathing jet-powered dragon plane (links to original article with pics and videos)? Well now you can buy one from (who else?) Hammacher Schlemmer for $60,000. Or you could spend that money on two new cars, because SPOILER: that... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 1:15 scale R/C Airbus A380 taking to the skies at a recent R/C plane show. You know, that seems like it would be a fun thing to attend on a weekend. You know what I attend on weekends? Community service. And not the cool kind like I created a community ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of French bicyclist François Gissy setting a new world record by hitting 263km/h (~163mph) on a hydrogen peroxide powered rocket bike. That seems dangerous. I've probably hit 25mph on my bike before and I felt like my face was going to melt off. Then I ... / Continue →

    This is Rick Hamel's 'Mythical Beast', a seven-foot R/C dragon (with a nine-foot wingspan) powered by a turbine engine that even breaths fire. Man, you wanna know the worst thing is about breathing fire while you're flying? The risk of melting your face off. Because one time... / Continue →

    Remember the Mach 20 (~15,000 MPH) unmanned jet the pentagon was testing to carry out its dirty little conspiracies? And remember how it lost communication part way through its flight? Well it turns out that was because its skin tore off and it crashed down into the Pacific b... / Continue →

    This is a series of time-lapse videos created by stitching together 14-years of high-res Hubble Space Telescope images to show the movement of stellar jets from young stars over that period. What's a stellar jet? I'm partial to the SR-71 Blackbird! Fine, FINE -- some actual ... / Continue →

    You just have to watch it to appreciate it, but this is a video of an F-16 R/C plane with a little video camera mounted where the pilot's head would be that's flown by a person on the ground wearing a video helmet who can also move the camera around because the helmet has a gyr... / Continue →

    Seen here trying to win an invisible limbo contest, an Argentinian jet pilot flies an FMA IA 63 Pampa (I would've called it the Puma) straight into a group of people. I'm genuinely surprised nobody got sucked into an engine, it was that close. Because one time I got sucked in... / Continue →

    To verify the ejection system for the F-35 Lightning (first supersonic jet capable of vertical takeoff and landing) is shit-your-flightsuit ready, BAE has been testing the system on a 600MPH rocket sled. What the?! We didn't even have rocket sleds when I was growing up. When ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of a Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet returning from a trip through space and time. Sure you could argue those are just vapor trails, but you'd sound like an idiot and nobody will ever take you seriously again. Not that we do now anyways. Just sayin', remember th... / 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 the F35-B, the first supersonic jet capable of vertical take off and landing PLUS HOVER! Sure it's probably existed forever in top secretness, but I get the feeling the government has just now gotten around to declassifying the thing. Now give us the alien ... / Continue →

    An autonomous killer Reaper jet recently went rogue in Northern Afghanistan and had to be shot down before it got the chance to go berserk and blast the shit out of the blue team. Eff that! The aircraft was flying a combat mission when positive control of the MQ-9 was lost. W... / Continue →

    Whenever I think "jet-powered" I think of rocketpacks and blasting off to the moon with a bubble helmet on and then playing hide-and-seek amongst the craters. Secondly, I think of danger and how much fun it is almost dying but then escaping death at the last second and flippin... / Continue →

    This is a video of an F-18 Hornet buzzing some guy's head so close you can taste the jet fuel. Now I'm not saying this thing would kill you if it hit you, but it would certainly mess your hair up. Also, not to brag or nothin', but one time I let a jet land ON MY FACE. Now wh... / Continue →

    Growing up, my dad would only slow to 25MPH to drop me off at school, so I'm no stranger to bailing out of moving vehicles. Just not at Mach 2. That's crazy talk. Now don't get me wrong, I would still do it. BUT ONLY BECAUSE I DON'T GIVE A DANG. Movie producers paid two Su... / Continue →

    This is a time lapse video of a F/A-18 Super Hornet jet being built. And let me just say, wow, that thing must have over 100 different pieces. Making it nearly twice as complicated as the hardest LEGO set I've built. Constructing A Super Hornet: "A time lapse of the construc... / Continue →

    Ronald Dejarnett is the U.S. Navy sonar technician that snapped this pic of an F-22 going boom boom over the Gulf of Alaska. Quick shootin', Ronald -- I probably would have peed a little and yelled DECEPTICON! But that could be my special forces training talking. A Picture I... / Continue →

    Yves "Fusion Man" Rossey successfully crossed the English Channel with a jetpack today. This is one small pew for man, one giant PEW PEW PEW for mankind. Rossy, a pilot who normally flies an Airbus airliner, crossed the 22 miles between Calais and Dover at speeds of up to 1... / Continue →
