    This is a video demonstration of NASA's Greased Lightning-10 drone showing off its capability to transform from an upright flying drone to an airplane mid-flight. It can both hover like a helicopter and fly like an airplane. Was there a Transformer like that? Maybe his name ... / Continue →

    This is a video from the Ultra Léger Motorisé aeronautics club in French Guiana of a cat that stowed away in the plane's wing before a flight. Apparently the cat is the club's mascot and wanted to see what this flying thing is all about. The cat is fine and presumably learned... / Continue →

    This is a video of Red Bull stunt pilots Paul Bonhomme and Steve Jones barnstorming (technically hangarstorming) side by side at 185MPH, caught from a bunch of different angles and in beautiful slow motion. They must really trust each other. Also, maybe it's true after all th... / Continue →

    This is a video of a stunt pilot taking his four-year old daughter Léa out for her first aerobatic flight. She really gets into it and giggles her face off. Me? I couldn't do it. I only fly out of necessity. It is not something I could ever do for pleasure. Mostly because... / Continue →

    This is a video shot on Huntington Beach of a stunt kite pilot taunting a kid with his insane kite control skills. I didn't even know half of those moves were possible to perform with a kite. And apparently neither did Benjamin Franklin, which is why his bag of kite tricks co... / Continue →

    To celebrate their expansion into more international markets, All Nippon Airlines has announced they'll begin flying these R2-D2 themed 787 Dreamliners to foreign destinations this fall. I'm pretty sure the extent of the R2-D2 theme is just the exterior though. Still, maybe R... / Continue →

    This is a video of wingsuiter Sebastian Alvarez flying through a piece of styrofoam painted like the Chilean flag just twelve feet above the extinct volcano Cerro Manquehue, near his hometown of Santiago, Chile. I don't think I would have the balls to do that. I take that bac... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of renderings of the upcoming Bell 525 Relentless, a state-of-the-art helicopter complete with customizable ultra-luxurious interiors. Obviously, I just added one to the top of my must-have list. How much do luxury helicopters go for these days, anyway? I h... / Continue →
