The RA-5C was a Mach 2+ aircraft, capable of electromagnetic, optical, and electronic reconnaissance. It could operate at altitudes from sea level to above 50,000 feet. The Vigilante was employed to great effect by the 7th fleet during Carrier Air Wing operations in the Vietnam war. The two man crew flew in tandem in twin cockpits, the pilot in front, and the Reconnaissance Attack Navigator, in the rear This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA.

During a storm in the Pacific Ocean, Atlas was down one set of landing gear. The rest of the squadron went and landed on a nearby island due to the storm, Atlas, had to dump his fuel and had one chance to land into the net. This is a great tribute to Bug Roach (Bug can be heard on the audio calmly talking the pilot down to the aircraft carrier) and his contribution to Naval Aviation. Footage is from March 9, 1987.

While Britain created the immortal Spitfire, Lancaster and Edgley Optica, it also created a wealth of dangerous, disgraceful and diabolical designs. These are just ten plucked from a shortlist of thirty. In defining ‘worst’- we’ve looked for one, or a combination, of the following: design flaws, conceptual mistakes, being extremely dangerous, being unpleasant to fly, or obsolete at the point of service entry (and the type must have entered service). Grab a cup of tea, and prepare for ire as you read about ten machines they wanted your dad, grandad or great grandad to fly to war. I'd love to hear your opinions below.

A3Treasurer's shared video file. On 6-30-2011 after several days of consulting with Raytheon, NAVAIR, NMNA, and the A-3 Association. It was agreed to fly the jet to Pensacola for display. The A-3 Association deposited $15K with Raytheon and on the 29th, Ron Woltman and crew departed Van Nuys at 1945 CST arriving NAS Fort Worth at ~2215. We (A-3 Assoc) met Ron and crew at the aircraft and transported them to the hotel. Early the next morning we readied the jet for it's last flight and Ron and his crew took off for the last time at 9:10 CST Fort Worth, TX for Pensacola, FL. We'll miss the sound of those J-57's and we will miss the A-3 Skywarrior. Remember all that we have 20 of these in museums so please donate to the A-3 Association so we can keep them all as good looking as how Raytheon kept this one.

Produced by Republic Aviation Corporation and in co-operation with Pratt & Whitney Aircraft, “Foreign Object Damage” (aka Foreign Object Debris ) is a short film presented by the Aeronautical System Division, Air Force Command; Tactical Air Command; and Mobile Air Material Area, Air Force Logistics Command. The film discusses the issues with foreign object damage (FOD) to aircraft and what the US Air Force is doing to combat the problem. The short film begins with a shot of three F-105 Thunderchiefs flying through the sky (00:32), a jet landing (00:48), and a replacement engine being installed (01:17). The aircraft shown at 1:06 is FH-719, from the 335th TFS/4th TFW "The Chiefs". Most likely this indicates that the film was shot at Eglin AFB in Florida, since the 335th was based there and operating the Thud starting in May 1959. At that time the unit was the first squadron in the Air Force to receive the F-105 Thunderchief, transitioning from F-100s. FOD is the number one cause for jet overhaul and is a significant financial burden to the US Air Force. Foreign objects that damage these powerful engines include aircraft and engine hardware (02:45), maintenance tools (02:51), miscellaneous personal effects (02:56), and runway debris including stones and gravel (03:01). Foreign objects move through the engine and can cause significant damage, starting with the compressor blades (03:15). Measures to prevent FOD begin with the manufacturer and aircraft assembly lines (04:13). FOD prevention starts with an initial inspection (04:23), followed by more inspections—such as inserting a borescope tool into an inspection port (04:47)—and preventative measures such as placing covers over the engines (04:38). These measures are taken to keep foreign objects out of not only aircraft engines, but all other parts of the aircraft as well, including wing assemblies (05:27). Efforts are made to prevent FOD during hanger and flight line operations (07:17), and frequent inspections and cleanings of all ramps, taxiways, and runways are standard protocol (07:39). To pinpoint the primary source of FOD, the Air Force establishes a full-scale test program to evaluate suspected causes (08:02). Ground tests (08:32), standard gun-firing tests (09:02), aborted take-off tests (09:18), and vortex tests (10:03) are conducted to evaluate FOD. However, it is the jet wake that is determined to be the primary cause of the problem, as jet exhaust from a lead aircraft sends debris into the engine air intakes (11:20) of a trailing aircraft. By examining the tail-to-duct distance (12:38), the Air Force then determines how to avoid this cause of FOD and restricts jet blasts during ground operations. Other procedures are still in place, such as taking inventory of all maintenance tools (14:57), to avoid any and all FOD so the Air Force can keep its aircraft combat ready. The Republic F-105 Thunderchief was a supersonic fighter-bomber used by the United States Air Force. The Mach 2 capable F-105 conducted the majority of strike bombing missions during the early years of the Vietnam War; it was the only U.S. aircraft to have been removed from combat due to high loss rates. Originally designed as a single-seat, nuclear-attack aircraft, a two-seat Wild Weasel version was later developed for the specialized Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD) role against surface-to-air missile sites. The F-105 was commonly known as the "Thud" by its crews. We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment!

This is the 1st 16 minutes of the RANGER TOUR I filmed. I am working on getting the rest up on the web. Total time is 2 hours 20 minutes or so.
