This is a clip of a life-size R/C flying Superman model, complete with mannequin head and terrible haircut. I say life-size, but I think it’s actually more young Superman, or Superboy sized. I mean it’s not 6’3″. It certainly should have been though. I mean if you can make something
This is some footage captured by Chris theRCgeek of Snoopy flying atop his doghouse plane in real life. How about that! His head even turns as he flies. That’s awesome. Honestly, probably more awesome than humanity deserves right now. I feel like humanity deserves to pay $10 to see a
These are two videos taken aboard an Asiana Airlines flight to Daegu, South Korea, where a passenger in his 30’s decided to open an emergency door mid-flight. The plane was able to land safely, and the man admitted to authorities he opened the door, but didn’t provide a reason why.

Note: Lower your volume, jet taking off. Captured on the last day of the Boeing Seafair Air Show, this is a video of an F-35 Lightning II taking off from the Boeing Field runway. Such power — I wish I could have been there. I wish I could have felt

This is a video imagining what the retired Concorde jet’s Mach 2 (twice the speed of sound) cruising speed, or around 1,350MPH, looks like at ground level. It’s definitely fast, but things really don’t go by as quickly as I thought they would. Now what I really need to see
San Francisco airport has two runways (28L and 28R, which at least to me stand for left and right like I label my shoes) 750-feet apart that run perfectly parallel to each other, at times leading to two planes landing at the same time in what looks like a performance
