Got a raging tech. boner last weekend.  Saturday afternoon I had the pleasure of seeing a pair of F-15's in what appeared to be a drill of some sort.  They continuously flew in a rectangular pattern over west Houston for at least an hour so.  I decided to kick back and enjoy the repeated flyovers.  The sound alone made my day though they were flying much slower than usual (especially by F-15 standards).  Managed to get some footage but the video was too grainy.  One fine piece of engineering....

Big Bird: Emirates Airbus A380 snapped up close at Manchester Airport (RWY 05 Left).

 

The aircraft weighs almost 600 tons at take off and will fly 3,500 miles to Dubai.

TransAsia Airways of Taiwan is shutting down. It's sad because they ran a fleet of ATR-72s which I really enjoyed flying on (I have a thing for turboprops like the ATR-42/72 and Dash 8s). I guess times are a-changing, and it's Embraer E190/195s for my commute flights from now on...

Just posting from somewhere over the pacific. Got wifi for the duration of my flight to ORD. Never used in-flight wifi on a transpacific flight before! We're living in the future now.

This thread started in memory of the Airbus A340, a plane that always seemed spectacular, this is my contribution ...

I've flown on it's successor, the A350 XWB, a couple of times now (both with Finnair). Without a question, the nicest planes I've ever been on board.

I've not yet had the chance to fly on the A350 yet but I know CI, CX, and SQ all operate them now. I know you can't stop the march of progress but I always felt the A340 was the dragster of the sky, just because it was the only single-deck four-engined aircraft in service (BAe 146 notwithstanding).

I don't have a fleet, just one model Airbus A380 SuperJumbo.
 
This was a gift from friends of mine from Dubai   :)

(yes, I am obsessed with this aircraft ha ha)

Relatively new here, I'm also a keen Aviation enthusiast.

 

My username is based on RAF Brize Norton, an RAF transport base.

 I remember thinking how nice it must be to be able to travel like in this video. I work across the street from  National Guard base and commercial airport. A 747 for some reason has been parked there for years . We get to watch the annual airshow Blue Angels etc practice during the week, so I'm spared the crowds on show day.  Ive seen the Concorde depart from Miami, and Air Force One from Louisiana.  Ive also watched a Space Shuttle re-enter. I was awaiting the Columbia when I learned that she  had  failed en route

Dunno.
That looks too cramped for me.
I would rather fly in Etihad's "The Residence", lol.

Flew in Etihad's business class to Melbourne last year. Very tasteful. And I am not just talking about the buffets at the lounges....

Not even in the GTA game does a commercial aircraft incorporate a system of anti-missile countermeasures such as this Israeli ISRAIR Airbus equipped with a Directed IR Countermeasures (DIRCM) system as solutions to protect aircraft from an attack using ground-based missiles (Manpads) that work by heat search of the aircraft engines.

You know, i get it, some idiots shot down a commercial aircraft with a missile, but this seems pretty much overkill :p

I've merged these threads. It's an interesting topic but looking back across your posting history you seem to do little other than promote videos from a certain YT channel. I hope for your sake you aren't advertising your own channel on the forum...
