Heh, the Frontier from Denver to Philly is estimated to be 29 minutes early, must have caught that big blow coming across the country for a tail wind.

I once did London to Denver via Newark. Unfortunately the Newark to Denver sector was straight into the 'big blow'. It took over fours.

OK, it's another one from the Mach Loop but it made the national press this morning...

Eagle eyes


A US air force F15 Strike Eagle is captured in pin-sharp detail in west Wales with the co-pilot looking straight at the camera.
With a top speed of 1,875mph, the fighter jets have previously been used for air strikes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya.
Rob Maclennan, 50, took the photograph after climbing a 700ft mountain near Machynlleth in Powys.

I found this last year and, when I saw the long landing above, knew I had to find it again.

It doesn't count in a 40 mph headwind.

Yeah, you're right.
Makes it unimpressive.

Or maybe you can find one in a 50 MPH headwind where it lands backwards.

Oh it's impressive, the pilot certainly knows his plane, just doesn't count for a record.

Anybody can land a plane in less than a foot.

It's doing that and landing on the wheels instead of the nose that's hard.

Even though it is a re-creation of an old event, that is an exciting video.
It does make you wonder about the mysterious recent air freight flight that went down.

Yeah, I had closed captioning on and a couple times I had a WTF moment and had to back it up.

Now, THAT is an aircraft.

It's the Handley Page Victor which was one of the three 'V Bombers' in service with the RAF during the Cold War.
It went on to be an air-to-air refuelling aircraft and I believe that there was a photo reconnaissance version as well.

In 2009 a preserved Victor was shown at its base at Bruntingthorpe.
It wasn't approved for flying but it was OK to do a high speed run.
Unfortunately, things went slightly wrong and the aircraft became airborne.
Thankfully no-one was hurt and no damage was done but it was a worrying couple of minutes.
The pilot gives an account of the incident in the second video.
