Demon View

Aside from being a blatant PR video, this short highlights some of the ridiculously cool technology being incorporated into the F-35 joint strike fighter. The pilot's helmet system, nicknamed the "demon" for it's somewhat Halloweenish appearance, allows the pilot a 360 degree integrated view of his environment. I wonder how long this technology will take to trickle down to that C-172 I rent?

Aviation Hero - Bob Hoover

Bob Hoover is one of my all time favorite pilots and this video is a testament to his character. Definitely a must watch, thanks RJ!!

Words on GA from Cirrus CEO Alan Klapmeier

James Fallows of the Atlantic pointed me to a video of Cirrus Design CEO Alan Klapmeier speaking at a meeting of the Atlanta Aero Club. It's a lengthy video, but if you have the time it's very interesting.

Ejection Seat Testimonial

Check out the second Su-24 to land, these guys are probably stil waiting for their eyebrows to grow back.

Terrafugia Takes Off

From the Terrafugia Press Release:

Dead Stick Takeoff?

I suppose every glider takeoff could really be considered dead stick, however, this video sheds new light on the concept. Oh, and that's the beautiful Idaho backcountry by the way!!

Festival Tour

If you're a fan of smooth jazz and light sport aircraft, you'll love this video tour of the Festival R40S LSA. It's a bit melodramatic for a sales video, but it does show off the airplane nicely.

A Special Kind of Crazy

We posted a story about a week ago showing a guy rappelling down from a helicopter to repair a wind turbine. At the end of that post I mentioned that the only people crazier than that might be the folks working on high voltage wires... I rest my case...
