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.

A whiff of a Swift. Music by Beyond the Buried, if you're not into extreme metal (I am) just turn the sound down.

Not as mountain zooming dynamic as last video, still quite interesting.

FM!!!!!   My favourite 1970s out-there-in-the-boonies band! My earliest introduction to synthesizers/ electronic music. 

I saw them live in the 1990s here in Ottawa

My brother and Jeff Plewman (Nash the Slash) were quite close friends, he was devastated when he died.
