Impressive Qatar Airways Boeing 787 Dreamliner Display, Farnborough.
Ex F-18 Super Hornet display pilot Mike Bryan, gets to fly the Boeing 787 at Farnborough.

Amazing how this airliner flew at FIA12, great flying and the Dreamliner looked really good, those wings are things of beauty.
Fatal Plane Crash Recorded From Inside The Plane
Shorter version is posted here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64w--j89K34
If you're wondering why I posted the whole video and not just the accident, it's because if you watch the whole thing you can easily put yourself in the airplane and almost feel what they went through. It's definitely worth the 7 minutes of time to get a sense of what happened here and maybe learn something and fly safer as a result.
Link to the NTSB accident report:
Cessna L-19 Bird Dog pilot leaves himself no escape route and crashes killing himself and his friend in the back. He stalls the airplane at least 3 times in the last few seconds of flight and each time it stalls he pulls the stick back. Lets see, I teach my students to add full power and decrease the angle of attack. Since this pilot was already at full power he had only one thing to do to gain airspeed. PUSH FORWARD on the stick. Also his bank angle was about 60 degrees in the last portion of the turn. Stall speed, as indicated on the airspeed indicator, increases with bank angle. This is because in a turn, to maintain altitude, the angle of attack has to be increased by pulling the stick back. The reason for this is the plane loses some vertical component of lift, the amount depends on the bank angle. 60 degrees of bank requires the wing to produce twice the lift, to maintain altitude, as that needed to fly straight and level. Ie: gross weight is say 2300 lbs. 60 degrees of bank means the wing has to produce 4600 lbs. of lift just to maintain altitude, and that assumes the tail is not producing a down force which is almost never the case. Some airspeed is also lost to do this and if you're already at full power then you need to determine if you can push the nose down to maintain airspeed. In this case the pilot was at about 10,000 ft MSL but only a few hundred feet AGL. He had no altitude to spare to accomplish this safely at the bank angle he chose. I believe he could have made the turn to the left and less bank and came out of this terrible situation alive.
Crazy St. Maarten 747 Takeoff
A Boeing 747-400 operated by Corsair departing St. Maarten right over my head. Watch the rear wheels leave the runway right at the end!
same takeoff from the side view...the shadows from the clouds in my video match the ones in the link...should definitively prove its Corsair
Boeing 787 Trent 1000 engines
Boeing 787 will roll out with two next generation Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines.The Trent 1000 is on track for certification and has started its last required test. It has successfully completed the fan blade containment and all bird ingestion tests. Development testing has validated the full range of thrust capability required by the 787 family. Other testing has involved high temperature running and cyclic endurance equivalent to thousands of normal in-service hours. Key certification requirements met are the 150-hour engine type test and the FAA 1,000 cycle initial maintenance interval test.
What's he Thinking??? MD-11 Cockpit FAST Rotate
In the cockpit from brake release through the initial climbout and level-off at 2,000'. A pilot new to the MD-11 is in the left seat hand-flying the airplane.
-Note: To all those out there that play on fsx or whatever they call the desktop computer game "flight simulator," this is very very far from it; "flight simulator" is not remotely close to either these types of Level D certificated Sims or the flight training/crew certification that goes on in them...
C-17 Reverse Thrust!
This video was taken at the Vectren Dayton Airshow back in 2008. I was almost knocked backwards when this C-17 Globemaster III unleashed the power of its F117 PW-100 engines in full reverse!
This "purpose built" skydiving airplane stalls with 6 people outside.
Boeing 777 Wing Test
This Boeing 777 wing was tested to destruction, finally breaking at one fifty four percent of the designed limit load.
B787 testflight crosswind landing!!
This is Keflavik airport in Iceland. 3rd Sept 2010. The B787 came to Iceland and did some flight testing in the crosswind. The wind this day for runway 20 was 110/30G36. The full video can be found here below. Please subscribe for more videos.
