I'd think that it was a demonstration of an inexperienced carrier pilot demonstrating that he doesn't know how to fly a missed approach. Had that hook caught... pancake!

Very cool video no matter what.

That Mighty Mo video is awesome as well. I can only imagine what the escort ship crews must have thought knowing that their "big" gun was secondary armament for BB 63. It would be nice to see the impacts as her shells hit the target of the SINKEX.

This DC-3 (BT-67), a turboprop DC-3 nicknamed Lidia, crashed in 2012.  All the passengers escaped without injury.  However, the aircraft didn’t fare as well.  For almost a year, the damaged craft sat idle under very harsh conditions until a team of engineers made an attempt to rebuilt the aircraft.  They faced extremely cold temperatures, blowing snowstorms and high winds.  It’s a great story that shows the power of dedication, hard work, and hope to rescue a classic aircraft.

Cool. I did not know about this Ice-capade.  ;D

I checked out the Basler website. Cool time lapse video on a complete BT-67 conversion here (http://www.baslerturbo.com/production-time-lapse-video.html).

The site FAQ  says:

Q. Will Basler Turbo Conversions, LLC run out of DC-3 airframes?
A. Not really. We believe that there are more than 500 good candidate airframes in existence.

Q. How does Basler Turbo Conversions, LLC determine if an airframe is candidate for conversion?
A. We look for corrosion and damage to determine if it is economically feasible to repair the corroded or damaged areas.

Q. What about fatigue?
A. The DC-3 air-frame is infinitely repairable as related to fatigue damage.

Q. How long does it take to convert a DC-3 to a Basler Turbo Conversions BT-67?
A. The conversion is actually a re-manufacturing process. The whole process takes roughly 6 months and requires 35,000 to 45,000 man hours to complete, depending on configuration.

Q.  Can you still get parts for a DC-3?
A. Yes, due to the number of militaries that operated the DC-3, there is a vast supply of parts still available. Basler has a large stock of DC-3 parts and has produced the parts where world stocks are depleted.

The following footage was filmed from a U.S. Air Force KC-135 from the 340th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron as it refuels an AC-130W over Iraq during a night operation in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. (http://youtu.be/2ZZnoAUOSic)

The best part is when the gunship disappears into the night.

There are very few details about the gunship operations in Iraq. Among the things that we know is that two AC-130s along with some A-10 Warthogs were involved in a quite famous airstrike during which 116 ISIS-controlled fuel trucks were destroyed near Abu Kamal, Syria, on Nov. 15, 2015 as part of the coalition’s Operation Tidal Wave II.

Weapon hard points would be as tested on the ATTR in a "moustache" position and limited to a rocket pod, gun pod, or Hellfire double-rack (four-rack hangs down too far).  A gun system has been trialed and found wanting; too, you need to make certain you don't hit yourself (like the tilted nacelles when in helicopter mode).  If it was strictly for gravity drop weapons, you might fit racks behind the rotor plane, but only gravity drop weapons (bombs, torpedoes, etc.).

We are looking at ways of improving performance and reliability/maintainability, too.

ASTON MARTIN CAMBRIDGE DELIVERS SPECIAL EDITION CAR WITH ADRENALINE FUELLED EVENT

Aston Martin Cambridge commissioned 8 Limited Edition vehicles inspired by and built to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the Supermarine Spitfire, the iconic masterpiece of British engineering. The 8 lucky owners were invited to the ultimate hand-over event which took place in September 2016 from the Imperial War Museum Duxford.

Designed to celebrate an iconic car and to mark the 80th anniversary of the Supermarine Spitfire’s first flight and the power of British engineering, just eight models of the V12 Vantage S Spitfire 80 were produced globally.

(https://theaviationist.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Typhoon-intercept-Jet-Airways.jpg)

A wonderful example international cooperation.

Recently in the skies over Germany, a Boeing 777 suffered a category 4 chemtrail unit spray failure in two of its port vents. In a show of international support, Germany scrambled two Typhoon fighter jets, each equipped with a compact chemtrail dispersal system. In a short time, the German fighters were able to move into position to enable the 777 to continue in its geoengineering mission. All aircraft landed without incident, and the spray operation was a complete success!

Our thanks to the BA crew flying in trail who captured this amazing sequence of events.

Jet Airways flight 9W-118, a Boeing 777-300 registered as VT-JEX, was intercepted by a pair of German Luftwaffe Typhoons as a security precaution over Germany on Thursday, February 16, after radio communications with the airliner were briefly lost.

The CGI trailers for the games Armored Core V, Armored Core Verdict Day, and Armored Core: For Answer are pretty spectacular and over the top, I highly recommend checking them out even if you've never heard of or play the games.

South Africa is swearing in their new President and with the festivities came one of the most incredible flyovers we have seen for a long time. The event was held at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in the heart of Pretoria and was part of a slew of festivities to welcome Cyril Ramaphosa into office.

The flyover consisted of a pair of South African Airways Airbus A340-600s flanked by the South African Air Force's Silver Falcons display team in their Pilatus PC-7 Mk.IIs.

This is how an A340 should be flown.

Historian Unveils Never-Seen Footage of Armstrong and Aldrin on the Moon

One last Apollo story, if you haven’t had your fill. And this is a good one.

Back in May, in preparation for the upcoming 50th anniversary celebrations of Apollo 11, space historian Robert Godwin was going through film footage he’d received from NASA years earlier. One particular sequence caught his eye in a copy of the internegative created in July 1969 from the original 16 mm film returned from the moon. Whereas subsequent views of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the surface—the ones we’ve all watched hundreds of times—show deep shadows around the lunar module that completely obscure the astronauts’ actions at times, Godwin could clearly see the two astronauts moving around in the shadows.

For the first time, we can now see what was happening right before Armstrong took one of the most famous photos in history, of Aldrin standing on the lunar surface.

Godwin told the whole story at last week’s EAA Airventure gathering in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. You can watch his talk and the footage at the 54:13 mark in the YouTube clip below.
