In a joint operation between the National Weather Service, NOAA, and commercial jet operators, airliners are being equipped with the latest weather sensing technology.
As if flying on a supersonic jet wasn't already a luxury, this $80 million jet will have two massive panoramic displays instead of windows.
Not since the Concorde has Europe felt so close, but the hours you save will run you a pretty penny.
America's military could make history with a change to its air force: removing the need for pilots by requiring that the next generation of combat planes can be controlled remotely like a drone.
We seen a lot of airshows, but never have we seen two planes flying so close to each other. These two daredevil Japanese pilots, flying Kawasaki T4 jets, are part of Japan's equivalent of the U.S. Blue Angels and Thunderbirds, called the Blue Impulse Demonstration Squad.
Where do you test out scramjets, transatmospheric space planes and wave riders? In the supersonic wind tunnel at Tennessee's Arnold Air Force Base, that's where.
The two main reasons supersonic flight hasn't caught on (other than the late, great Concorde) are the amount of fuel it takes to achieve such high speeds and the deafening, potentially destructive sonic boom that occurs when crossing the sound barrier. Well, NASA has a gorgeous new concept plane that addresses both issues.
It doesn't come with any instructions on how to build one yourself, but here's a video that shows you what goes into building an F/A-18 Super Hornet (which I supposed means it's either an F/A-18E or F/A-18F) from start...
Today we celebrate Columbus Day, commemorating the trans-Atlantic voyage of three ships that represented the pinnacle of technology circa 1492. On board were scores of courageous sailors, many of whom believed they might end up fighting for their lives...
Our Air Force has a couple different sources of fuel for its jets, one of them being a blend derived from coal. Problem is, both the process used to turn coal into fuel and burning said fuel in flight...
