A380s Fly in Formation over Sidney

Two Airbus A380s made a dramatic tandem flight over the famous Australian landmark Sydney Harbour Bridge today to launch the new Qantas-Emirates partnership, hailed by the Australian carrier as a “seismic shift” in aviation. The tie-up, approved last week by Australia’s competition watchdog, allows the two airlines to combine operations for an initial period of five years, […]

Canadian Museum Gets Starfighter

Thomas Hinderks felt like a kid at Christmas when two shipping containers delivered pieces of a Canadair CF-104D Starfighter aircraft to the Alberta Aviation Museum in Edmonton, Canada, Friday morning. After waiting almost 18 months to acquire the Cold War-era plane from the Netherlands, the museum’s executive director didn’t hesitate to sling himself up six feet […]

On This Day in Aviation History

1912 – Hanna Reitsch, German test pilot, was born; she was a test pilot on the Junkers Ju 87 Stuka and Dornier Do 17 as well as one of the few pilots to fly the Focke-Achgelis Fa 61, the first fully controllable helicopter. 1939 – The Curtiss YP-37 (shown above), a single-engined fighter based on the company’s […]

Silver Star Recipient Recounts Vietnam Evac Flight

Making the Jump to Jets: One Pilot’s Story

Making the Jump to Jets: One Pilot’s Story

Diving from 17,000 feet, the airspeed increasing to more than three times what I’m used to in a Cessna 172, my instinct to pull out of the back side of a 6,000-foot-vertical loop is premature and aggressive — an understandable reaction to the visual sense of unprotected free-fall. As the front-seat pilot, I sit so […]

Washington-State Air Base Receives Its Last C-17

McChord Field, near Tacoma, Wash., has been home to several military cargo aircraft going back to World War II: the Douglas C-47 Skytrain, the Fairchild C-82 Packet, the Douglas C-124 Globemaster II and the Lockheed C-141 Starlifter. But none has been called to war for as long as the four-engine Boeing C-17 Globemaster III. McChord […]
