USAF F-16 instructor pilot - Maj. Windy Hendrick. She has a bit of helmet head but who cares!
Owner/Pilot John Magoffin purchased this Vega in 1995. After painstaking restoration, it maintains its original registration from 1933: NC12288. When he’s not flying the Vega, Magoffin pilots an Airbus A320 for US Airways, making him probably the only person on the planet who flies a 21st century airliner in the morning and a 1930s airliner in the afternoon. But given the choice between the ultra-modern Airbus and his ancient Vega, Magoffin would take the Vega every time.

Look at those colors! Who wouldn't want to go on a ride in a Lockheed Vega over a nice Autumn scene?
Loved by Amelia Earhart and Wiley Post, these Lockheed beauties are museum pieces today—all but one.
The first ejector seats were developed during the war by Heinkel. Early models were powered by compressed air and the first aircraft to be fitted with such a system was the Heinkel He 280 prototype jet fighter in 1941. One of the He 280 test pilots, Helmut Schenk, became the first person to escape from a stricken aircraft with an ejector seat on January 13 1942 after his control surfaces iced up and became inoperable.

This need more than an OMG that the last guy added. The Thunderbird Pilot lost power during the show. He stuck with the plane to get clear of the crowd in the background. This picture is the 1st of a series. The following pictures showed the impact as well as the pilot coming down behind the fireball.
Pilot error caused a U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds F-16 to crash shortly after takeoff at an air show Sept. 14, 2003, at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho. The pilot ejects 0.8 seconds before the jet hits the ground and lived to fly another day.

WC-130 from the Air Force Reserve's 53rd WRS "Hurricane Hunters," assigned to the 403rd Wing collect weather data during tropical storms, enabling forecasters to make more accurate predictions. Between hurricane seasons, the Hurricane Hunters have a lesser known, but equally important role: collecting weather data during winter storms. Here an aircraft gets the storm salt washed off.

Skunk Works, or Lockheed Martin ADP, gave birth to the SR-71 Blackbird in 1962, & was built to replace their first intelligence aircraft, the U-2. During the entirety of the Cold War, the Skunk Works was located in Burbank, California on the eastern side of Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport. After 1989, Lockheed reorganized its operations and relocated the Skunk Works to the U.S. Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, California, where it remains in operation today - from The Aviation Thread

SR71 Blackbird - Due to this critical fuel loss, the airplane had to be refueled immediately after takeoff, before it could continue with its mission.
On December 22, 1964, the Lockheed SR-71 Mach 3+ strategic reconnaissance aircraft started for her maidenflight. Since 1976, it has held the world record for the fastest air-breathing manned aircraft.
The SR-71 Blackbird was a Cold War reconnaissance plane.

Airplanes have always interested me in many different ways. One day I hope to take my lesson and be able to drive an actual airplane. I feel a different view of culture when it comes to aircraft. It amazes me on how far technology has actually came over the years. The fact the one can cut the time of distance in half compared to a car is astonishing. Another form of goals and work ethic with one or a team.
My dream, my only and quite impossible dream short of winning a lottery, is a hanger with a Piper Super Cub in it, and spending a couple of hours there each day puttering around . . . . holding court . . . . . and lunch next door at the Auger Inn.

India is set to become the first country since World War Two to buy a military aircraft from Japan, helping Prime Minister Shinzo Abe end a ban on weapons exports that has kept his country's defence contractors out of foreign markets.
The Supermarine Spitfire was Britain's answer to the Messerschmitt 109, and in many ways it was as nimble and deadly as its German counterpart. The distinctive elliptical wing design increased the fighter plane's overall maneuverability and decreased drag. Pilots who flew it loved the airplane, calling it "a ballerina in flight." It has often been credited with winning the Battle of Britain, in spite of the fact that the much more numerous Hawker Hurricanes shouldered most of the burden.
