A compilation of some unusual incidents in the aviation world. Happy to say no one got hurt in any of the clips. Outstanding airmanship displayed by all aircrew. Low level flying is generally accepted as a no no these days. Though military aircraft are an exception provided it is part of the flight plan at displays.
Raytheon Company and the U.S. Air Force concluded a series of test flights with the Small Diameter Bomb II (SDB II) culminating in direct hits on targets moving at operationally representative speeds. SDB II can hit targets from a range of more than 40 nautical miles. Read more at: http://defense-update.com/20131029_sdb-ii-jsow-c1-testing.html
10 Most Insane Secret Weapons In The World ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/vHN6qB For copyright matters please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org Military technology keeps advancing at incredible rates. If you think back to World War II and see the weapons compared to today’s weapons, it’s simply mind-boggling just how far advanced things are becoming, and from the looks of it, warfare is poised to become more dangerous than it ever was. From drones in the sky, drone tanks fitted with incredible weaponry, to small unmanned aircraft that are launched from carriers in the sky! Security clearance has been granted! Check out these insane secret military weapons. Russia’s Nuclear Tsunami Apocalypse Torpedo 'Poseidon' You might have heard of Russia’s new weapon which was called ‘Status-6’ or KANYON. It was once thought that the weapon was a hoax until researchers tracked the development of the system which began in 2008. Drones Recharged by a Laser Could Fly Forever The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has developed a drone that has solar panels that are built into the wings, and batteries in the fuselage. The batteries provide the power, but as they begin to drain, drone operators aim a laser beam at the solar panels which recharge the batteries. China's Giant Ionosphere-Zapping Radar This weapon developed by the Chinese is described as a ‘high-powered incoherent scatter radar’ and is supposed to bounce radio waves off the Earth's high-altitude layer of charged gas called the ionosphere. Project Thor Although this project has some limitation with our current technology, it’s something that is still on the table... we’re talking about a weaponized meteor strike. In the 1950’s a Boeing operations researcher by the name of Jerry Pournelle envisioned a weapons system armed not with conventional munitions or chemical explosives, but massive rods forged from the heavy metal ‘Tungsten’ which would be dropped from sub-orbital heights. Juliet Marine Systems Ghost The GHOST is an advanced super-cavitating stealth ship that reduces hull friction to 1/900th that of conventional watercraft. The Ghost uses a gyro-stabilized dual-pontoon super-cavitating hull that can run at top speed through 10-foot waves. Sea Dragon Weapon The U.S. Navy and an unknown defense contractor are working on a new missile the service says will give its submarines a new, ‘disruptive offensive capability’ to take on enemy ships. It’s called the Sea Dragon but no one is really sure what it is because it’s top secret. Drone Tank Military drones are on the rise and many of you are probably familiar with the unmanned US Predator drones that are equipped with advanced targeting systems and can carry 500-pound bombs and deliver those weapons to the target accurately. Tank-Killing Quadcopter Drone The armed forces of Belarus have demonstrated a new quadcopter drone that can carry a tank-killing rocket launcher which carries an RPG-26 single-shot rocket that is remotely fired by the drone operator. Iron Curtain With the name of ‘Iron Curtain,’ you might think this is a secret Russian military weapon, but it’s not. The U.S. Army is testing a system designed to protect military vehicles smaller than tanks from attacks. Gremlins Aircraft Carriers The idea of an aircraft carrier that operates in the air is not a new idea. And aside from the fictional flying aircraft carrier, the Helicarrier which appeared in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics, it would seem this is an impossible feat. But not so fast.

This fascinating captured German silent film — originally released by the Ordnance Department of the U.S. Army — shows launches and launch failures of the German V-2 rocket, also known as the A-4. Some of the scenes include a successful launch of the A-4 (:20), control cables leading to armored launch car / mobile blockhouse (:48) , V-2 on pad (1:02), fuel and oxygen trailers, another launch (1:36), close up of launch, disastrous launch due to guidance failure (2:40) , then an HE-111K is seen after the rocket crashed nearby resulting in a huge crater. Heinrich Himmler is seen visiting the V-2 launch site at the (3:30) mark, another successful launch is seen at the 3:49 mark, followed by a launch failure with a missilefailing on the launch pad due to lack of thrust, toppling over and exploding. The warhead remained intact. The wrecked rocket is shown in some detail. Another launch is seen at 5:40. At 6:08 a launch takes place that ends due to a guidance failure. The crater the rocket made is seen at the 6:20 mark. A group of Nazi officers survey the wreckage. Wernher von Braun can be seen in the center of the image, dressed in a suit at 7:01. Another launch failure is seen at 7:25, with the rocket going out of control and crashing spectacularly very close to the launch facility. A little bit closer and America might not have ever had the chance to capture von Braun or use his considerable intellect and knowledge to get to the moon... The V-2 (German: Vergeltungswaffe 2, "Retribution Weapon 2"), technical name Aggregat-4 (A-4), was the world's first long-range guided ballistic missile. The missile with a liquid-propellant rocket engine was developed during the Second World War in Germany as a "vengeance weapon", designed to attack Allied cities as retaliation for the Allied bombings against German cities. The V-2 rocket also became the first artificial object to cross the boundary of space with the vertical launch of V-177 on 20 June 1944. Beginning in September 1944, over 3,000 V-2s were launched by the German Wehrmacht against Allied targets during the war, first London and later Antwerp and Liège. According to a 2011 BBC documentary, the attacks resulted in the deaths of an estimated 9,000 civilians and military personnel, while 12,000 forced laborers and concentration camp prisoners were killed producing the weapons. As Germany collapsed, teams from the Allied forces—the U.S., Great Britain and the Soviet Union—raced to capture key German manufacturing sites, guided missiles, rockets and jet powered aircraft. Wernher von Braun and over 100 key V-2 personnel surrendered to the Americans. Through a lengthy sequence of events, a significant portion of the original V-2 team ended up working for the US Army at the Redstone Arsenal. The US also captured enough V-2 hardware to build approximately 80 of the missiles. The Soviets gained possession of the V-2 manufacturing facilities after the war and proceeded to re-establish V-2 production and move it to the Soviet Union. The Redstone team, led by von Braun, was transferred to NASA on its formation in October 1958. For NASA, this new Marshall Spaceflight Center (MSFC) helped design a series of rockets in the Saturn family.

http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/tlg/5757644303.html On 8 June 1966, XB-70A #2 was in close formation with four other aircraft (an F-4, F-5, T-38, and F-104) for a photoshoot at the behest of General Electric, manufacturer of the engines of all five aircraft. With the photoshoot complete, the F-104 drifted into contact with the XB-70's right wing, flipped over, and rolling inverted, passed over the top of the Valkyrie, struck the vertical stabilizers and left wing and exploded, destroying the Valkyrie's rudders and damaging its left wing. With the loss of both rudders and damage to the wings, the Valkyrie entered an uncontrollable spin and crashed into the ground north of Barstow, California. NASA Chief Test Pilot Joe Walker (F-104 pilot) and Carl Cross (XB-70 co-pilot) were killed, while Al White (XB-70 pilot) ejected, sustaining serious injuries, including one arm being crushed as it was caught in the clamshell-like escape capsule as it closed around him just before ejection from the aircraft. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jsi6ukXg9as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CHchCKeMOU The USAF summary report of the accident investigation stated that, given the position of the F-104 relative to the XB-70, the F-104 pilot would not have been able to see the XB-70's wing, except by uncomfortably looking back over his left shoulder. The report concluded that Walker, piloting the F-104, likely maintained his position by looking at the fuselage of the XB-70, forward of his position. The report estimated that the F-104 was 70 ft (21 m) to the side of, and 10 ft (3 m) below, the fuselage of the XB-70. The report concluded that from that position, without appropriate sight cues, Walker was unable to properly perceive his motion relative to the Valkyrie, leading to his aircraft drifting into contact with the XB-70's wing. The accident investigation also pointed to the wake vortex off the XB-70's wingtips as the reason for the F-104's sudden roll over and into the bomber.
