    OPERATION CROSSROADS DRONE B-17 PREPARATIONS & TEST FLIGHTS 51944
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Jan 30, 2017
    Dating to 1946, this silent, raw footage shows preparations underway to document the Operation Crossroads atomic bomb tests using drone B-17 aircraft. The Enewetak Atoll, home base for the drone operations, is seen at 1:35 from the air, with various views of the area that would be used for the later Operation Sandstone tests. At 6:30, drone B-17 aircraft are seen. These were equipped with radio controls and television cameras so that they could be flown remotely through the atomic cloud to obtain test data. At 11:36, a slate is seen "Operator monitoring for paper recorder mother ship" -- the mother ship in this case is the aircraft from which the drone was flown. Practice landings are seen at 12:00.

    Both the Navy and the Army Air Forces flew remote-controlled drones during Crossroads, a joint undertaking to see how much damage Navy ships, equipment, and material would incur in a nuclear blast. It took a sizeable contingent to find out: 42,000 men, 242 ships, 156 airplanes, 750 cameras, 25,000 radiation recorders, 5,000 pressure gauges, and four TV transmitters. Among the participating aircraft were Navy Grumman F6F Hellcats and Army Boeing B-17 Flying Fortresses, which served as unmanned reconnaissance observers.

    The first test on July 1, called Able, was an air drop explosion from a B-29 Superfortress, Dave’s Dream, on a 90-ship target fleet. After just eight minutes, a B-17 drone entered the mushroom cloud at 24,000 feet, followed a few minutes later by three other B-17 drones at 30,000, 18,000, and 13,000 feet. The Navy, meanwhile, sent in three F6F drones assigned to the carrier Shangri-La at altitudes of 20,000 feet, 15,000 feet, and 10,000 feet. All the drones were remotely operated by pilots flying in similar aircraft.

    The drones collected air samples while their automatic cameras took photographs before returning to base (Enewetok for the B-17s, Roi Island off Kwajalein for the Hellcats). The samples were sent to Kwajalein for analysis. No manned aircraft flew over the center of the blast, called Zeropoint, until four hours later, although manned boats were on the scene after two hours.

    ★ New Tupolev TU-160M2 PAK-DA Future Strategic Stealth Bomber. ВBC РОССИИ & ВKC РОССИИ.

    ★ Tupolev TU-160M2 PAK-DA Future Strategic Stealth Bomber. ВKC РОССИИ.

    Russia’s upgraded Tupolev Tu-160M2 Blackjack supersonic bomber is expected to make its first flight in 2019.
    Moscow currently has 16 of the original version of the Mach 2.0-capable bomber, which are the last surviving examples of the 35 aircraft built by the Soviet Union before its demise. Moscow hopes to build 50 new Tu-160M2 aircraft to upgrade its aging strategic bomber force.
    “I believe that in 2019 this plane, upgraded and manufactured, will make its maiden flight,” Col. Gen. Viktor Bondarev, commander of the Russian Aerospace Forces told the TASS News Agency on March 2.
    Russia made the decision to extend the development of the Tupolev PAK-DA in favor of the Tu-160M2 in 2015. Serial production of the new Blackjack variant is expected to start in 2023. According to Russia’s deputy defense minister Yuri Borisov — as cited by TASS — the Tu-160M2 has been fundamentally upgraded with completely new mission systems and other improvements over the existing M variant.
    “This will be essentially a new airplane, not a Tu-160 but a Tu-160M2,” Borisov told RIA Novosti last year.
    Details on the exact nature of the Tu-160M2 upgrades are scarce. Presumably, Tupolev has made long-overdue adjustments to the airframe that were supposed to have been implemented during the Blackjack’s original production run.
    However, those tweaks are likely to be fairly minor. The major upgrades are almost certainly going to be focused on the bomber’s avionics suite.
    Russia’s Radio-Electronic Technologies Concern (KRET) is working on developing the new avionics suite for the Tu-160M2. “Today we can say with confidence that the new aircraft will be constructed using the elements of integrated modular avionics (IMA),” the company told Russia’s state-owned RIA Novosti.
    “In the project to modernize the Tu-160, KRET will be creating new on-board systems, controls, a gimbal-less inertial navigation system, electronic warfare complex, fuel use monitoring systems, as well as weapons control systems.”
    Some of the new avionics could find their way onto the PAK-DA, which is being developed in parallel to the Tu-160M2.
    “The resumption of production of the Tu-160 will mobilize all research and manufacturing facilities of concern in this area and create an ideology for a fundamentally new approach to be implemented in the framework of the project of creation PAK-DA,” KRET told the Russian outlet.
    While much of the aircraft will be new, the Tu-160 will nonetheless retain its original nuclear deterrence mission. Unlike the stealthy Northrop Grumman B-2 or future B-21, the Russian bomber primarily relies on a combination of blistering speed and nuclear-tipped cruise missiles to deliver its doomsday payload.
    Indeed, it’s probable — given Russia’s nuclear doctrine — that even the future PAK-DA stealth bomber will rely primarily on long-range nuclear-tipped cruise missiles for the nuclear deterrence role.

    WORLDS LARGEST Regular Military Aircraft Training Exercise US Air Force Red Flag Training Exercise
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Feb 3, 2017
    US air force holds the worlds largest regular military aircraft training exercise. TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. - Four Tyndall F-22 Raptors and approximately 60 Airmen assigned to the 325 Fighter Wing arrived at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, today to train with allied air forces and U.S. services through mid-September.

    This first-ever F-22 training deployment to Europe is funded by the European Reassurance Initiative, and provides support to bolster the security of our NATO allies and partners in Europe.

    “This inaugural Raptor training deployment is the perfect opportunity for these advanced aircraft to train alongside other U.S. Air Force aircraft, joint partners and NATO allies,” said General Frank Gorenc, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commander.

    The training will prove that 5th generation fighters can deploy successfully to European bases and other NATO installations while also affording the chance for familiarization flight training within the European theater. It will also give them the chance to conduct combat air training with different aircraft like U.S. F-15 Eagles and F-16 Fighting Falcons.

    “It’s important we test our infrastructure, aircraft capabilities and the talented Airmen and allies who will host 5th generation aircraft in Europe,” said Gorenc. “This deployment advances our airpower evolution and demonstrates our resolve and commitment to European safety and security.”

    U.S. AIR FORCE IN THE KOREAN WAR "MEETING THE RED CHALLENGE" AIR FORCE STORY SEASON 2 50734
    PeriscopeFilm



    Published on Feb 3, 2017
    "The Air Force Story" was a series of TV episodes that told the story of the U.S. Air Force. The USAF was officially created as a standalone agency only in 1947, and prior to that existed as part of the Army. As a result the USAF saw a need to educate the public about the Air Force's history and role. This television show was part of this effort.

    Dating from Season 2, this episode describes America’s military involvement during the Korean War. An introductory scroll notes that “it is the job of all the people to know and understand what the airman has done and is doing today,” and it is the goal of the film to do just that. At mark 01:09 we’re given the title of this episode: “Volume II Chapter II Meeting the Red Challenge,” and are told of a meeting in Korea shortly after the end of World War II between military representatives from the United States and the Soviet Union. The peninsula was split at the 38th parallel into two countries — Communist North Korea and democratic South Korea (mark 01:40). In June 1950, however, North Korean troops invaded the south with footage shown starting at mark 03:40, and the United States soon pledging support of the South Korean government. We see a B-29 in flight at mark 05:00 as well as F-80 squadrons (mark 05:15) followed by scenes of strafing and bombing missions starting at mark 06:00, as well as the deployment of the U.S. Army 24th Infantry Division (mark 08:10). The 24th Division troops are shown again at mark 09:35 after their arrival in Korea and as they take on North Korean soldiers … all while be aided by the U.S. Air Force. We see another formation of B-29s (mark 11:00) as they embark on another bombing raid on strategic targets and learn of how U.S. troops and other United Nations peace-keeping forces began to establish a stronghold in South Korea. “It was a peculiar war but the problems were not proving too much for the United States Air Force,” the narrator proclaims at mark 13:33 as the draws to a close.

    We encourage viewers to add comments and, especially, to provide additional information about our videos by adding a comment! See something interesting? Tell people what it is and what they can see by writing something for example: "01:00:12:00 -- President Roosevelt is seen meeting with Winston Churchill at the Quebec Conference."

    "Using dramatic reenactments, this film illustrates the dos and don'ts of evasion and survival; techniques devised to enable American fighting men to evade capture and return to safety after being shot down from their aircraft."

    US Air Force Training Film TF1-4716

    Full-length reupload, with improved video & sound, of a film previously uploaded in a truncated version.

    Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    MULTISERVICE PROCEDURES FOR SURVIVAL, EVASION, AND RECOVERY

    1. Planning
    a. Review the quick reference checklist on the inside cover.

    b. Guidelines for successful evasion include

    (1) Keeping a positive attitude.
    (2) Using established procedures.
    (3) Following your evasion plan of action.
    (4) Being patient.
    (5) Drinking water (DO NOT eat food without water).
    (6) Conserving strength for critical periods.
    (7) Resting and sleeping as much as possible.
    (8) Staying out of sight.

    c. The following odors stand out and may give an evader away:

    (1) Scented soaps and shampoos.
    (2) Shaving cream, after-shave lotion, or other cosmetics.
    (3) Insect repellent (camouflage stick is least scented).
    (4) Gum and candy (smell is strong or sweet).
    (5) Tobacco (odor is unmistakable).

    d. Where to go (initiate evasion plan of action):

    (1) Near a suitable area for recovery.
    (2) Selected area for evasion.
    (3) Neutral or friendly country or area.
    (4) Designated area for recovery.

    2. Camouflage

    a. Basic principles:
    (1) Disturb the area as little as possible.
    (2) Avoid activity that reveals movement to the enemy.
    (3) Apply personal camouflage.

    b. Camouflage patterns (Figure I-1):

    (1) Blotch pattern.
    (a) Temperate deciduous (leaf shedding) areas.
    (b) Desert areas (barren).
    (c) Snow (barren).
    (2) Slash pattern.
    (a) Coniferous areas (broad slashes).
    (b) Jungle areas (broad slashes).
    (c) Grass (narrow slashes).
    (3) Combination. May use blotched and slash together.

    c. Personal camouflage application follows:

    (1) Face. Use dark colors on high spots and light colors on
    any remaining exposed areas. Use a hat, netting, or mask if
    available.
    (2) Ears. The insides and the backs should have 2 colors to
    break up outlines.
    (3) Head, neck, hands, and the under chin. Use scarf, collar,
    vegetation, netting, or coloration methods.
    (4) Light colored hair. Give special attention to conceal with
    a scarf or mosquito head net.

    d. Position and movement camouflage follows:

    (1) Avoid unnecessary movement.
    (2) Take advantage of natural concealment:
    (a) Cut foliage fades and wilts, change regularly.
    (b) Change camouflage depending on the surroundings.
    (c) DO NOT select vegetation from same source.
    (d) Use stains from grasses, berries, dirt, and charcoal.
    (3) DO NOT over camouflage.
    (4) Remember when using shadows, they shift with the sun.
    (5) Never expose shiny objects (like a watch, glasses, or
    pens).
    (6) Ensure watch alarms and hourly chimes are turned off.
    (7) Remove unit patches, name tags, rank insignia, etc.
    (8) Break up the outline of the body, “V” of crotch/armpits.
    (9) Conduct observation from a prone and concealed position...

    Top 5 Most Advanced Attack Helicopters in The World.

    ★ Bell AH-1Z Viper......
    The Bell AH-1Z Viper is a twin-engine attack helicopter based on the AH-1W SuperCobra, that was developed for the United States Marine Corps as part of the H-1 upgrade program. The AH-1Z features a four-blade, bearingless, composite main rotor system, uprated transmission, and a new target sighting system. The AH-1Z, one of the latest members of the prolific Huey family, is also called "Zulu Cobra", in reference to its variant letter based on the military phonetic alphabet.
    ★★ Eurocopter Tiger......
    The Airbus Helicopters Tiger, formerly known as the Eurocopter Tiger, is a four-bladed, twin-engined attack helicopter which first entered service in 2003. It is manufactured by Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters), the successor company to Aérospatiale's and DASA's respective helicopter divisions, which designate it as the EC665. In Germany it is known as the Tiger; in France and Spain it is called the Tigre.
    ★★★ Mil Mi-28N “Havoc”......
    The Mil Mi-28 (NATO reporting name "Havoc") is a Russian all-weather, day-night, military tandem, two-seat anti-armor attack helicopter. It is a dedicated attack helicopter with no intended secondary transport capability, better optimized than the Mil Mi-24 gunship for the role. It carries a single gun in an undernose barbette, plus external loads carried on pylons beneath stub wings.
    The Mi-28N was unveiled in 1995, the N designation meaning "night". The prototype first flew on 14 November 1996. The most significant feature is a radar in a round cover above the main rotor, similar to that of the American AH-64D Apache Longbow. Mi-28N also has improved tor vision and an aiming device under the nose, including a TV camera and FLIR. The advantages of the Mi-28N, like all-weather action ability, lower cost, and similarity to the Mi-24, have become important. In 2003, the head of Russian Air Forces stated that the Mi-28N and Ka-50 attack helicopters will become the standard Russian attack helicopter.
    The first serial Mi-28N was delivered to the Army on 5 June 2006. By 2015, 67 Mi-28Ns were planned to be purchased, when the Mi-24 was to be completely replaced. Rostvertol plant delivered about 140 Mi-28N and Mi-35M helicopters in 2012-14 to domestic and foreign customers; 28 helicopters were delivered in 2015.
    ★★★★ Boeing AH-64 Apache......
    The Boeing AH-64 Apache is an American four-blade, twin-turboshaft attack helicopter with a tailwheel-type landing gear arrangement and a tandem cockpit for a two-man crew. It features a nose-mounted sensor suite for target acquisition and night vision systems. It is armed with a 30 mm M230 chain gun carried between the main landing gear, under the aircraft's forward fuselage. It has four hardpoints mounted on stub-wing pylons, typically carrying a mixture of AGM-114 Hellfire missiles and Hydra 70 rocket pods. The AH-64 has a large amount of systems redundancy to improve combat survivability.
    ★★★★★ Kamov Ka-52 "Alligator"......
    The Ka-52 Alligator is a next-generation reconnaissance and combat helicopter designed to destroy tanks, armoured and non-armoured ground targets, and enemy troops and helicopters both on the front line and in tactical reserves. The helicopter can operate around the clock and in all weathers. The Ka-52 can provide target acquisition and designation for helicopter teams and ground troop command and control centres. It can also provide fire support for troop landings, fly routine patrols and escort military convoys.
    • Ka-52 Alligator is fitted with signature control devices as well as electronic and active counter-measures. It meets the latest Russian and international standards for technical operation of military helicopters.
    • The helicopter has a two-seat cockpit and can be flown by either pilot. Its advanced flight capabilities – achieved in part thanks to its coaxial rotors – make the helicopter highly manoeuvrable in limited space and thus able to adopt an advantageous attack position.
    • The Ka-52 Alligator’s two VK-2500 turboshaft engines allow the helicopter to operate at altitudes above 5,000m. It has a static ceiling of 4,000m, and is able to take off and land in hot climates and in high mountainous terrain. The Alligator can also operate in cold climates and icy conditions.
    • The Ka-52 Alligator is equipped with the latest avionics suite and powerful offensive weapons that can be configured for a wide range of combat missions.
    • The Ka-52 Alligator offers a high degree of protection to its crew, advanced automated systems for ease of piloting, and is easy to service and maintain on the ground.

    State-Of-The-Art Russian Helicopter Lands In Middle Of Road – You Won't BELIEVE Why

    State-Of-The-Art Russian Helicopter Lands In Middle Of Road – You Won't BELIEVE Why.

    This is the bizarre moment a passenger in a military helicopter asks a lorry driver for directions.
    The clip, filmed in Karabutak, Kazakhstan, shows a helicopter on a road surrounded by clouds of dust.
    The helicopter lands on the snowy road, stopping traffic in its tracks, as it appears the crew have become lost

    As the shaky footage comes into focus, a man can be seen running down the road, away from the helicopter, which has landed but still has its rotor running.
    After a short spell of gesturing and chatting, the man returns to the helicopter, appearing to know now where he is going.
    The helicopter takes off again, and the traffic is able to move forward for the drivers to continue their journey, after the strange interruption.

    'New tactical use of helicopters, equipped with rockets and machine guns, is seen for the first time on film as the helicopters move in and out of ground force positions, firing their weapons at a simulated enemy. Viewers will be taken on a fast-moving, treetop ride in the bubble of a helicopter as it surveys the terrain on a reconnaissance mission. In observance of the sixteenth anniversary of Army aviation, THE BIG PICTURE has produced an episode that dramatically shows the strides taken in this field. As pointed out in the film, Army aviation does not in any sense duplicate the tactical mission of the Air Force. It's function is solely to increase the Army's ability to win the land battle by increasing its mobility within the confines of the battlefield itself.'

    The United States Army Aviation Branch is the administrative organization within the United States Army responsible for doctrine, manning and configuration for all aviation units.

    After the United States Army Air Corps grew into the Army Air Forces and split into the new service, the United States Air Force, the Army was left with its sole fixed-wing aviation units flying L-2 observation planes for artillery units. The Army would develop a new concept of aviation using the helicopter that would show promise during the Korean War and would truly revolutionize warfare during the Vietnam War...

    Birth of Army Aviation (1942)

    Following a final series of experiments with organic Army spotter aircraft conducted in 1942, the Secretary of War ordered the establishment of organic air observation for field artillery—hence the birth of modern Army Aviation—on 6 June 1942. It was this new World War II-era phenomenon with its few small single-engine spotter planes, organic Army Aviation, that eventually evolved into today’s Army Aviation Branch.

    Organic Army Aviation first entered into combat in November 1942 on the coast of North Africa. During World War II, L-4 Grasshoppers and a few larger L-5 Sentinels were used to adjust artillery fire, gather intelligence, support naval bombardment, direct bombing missions, and perform other functions. Most training of both pilots and mechanics was conducted by the Department of Air Training within the Field Artillery School at Post Field, Okla., although the Army Air Forces conducted some primary training of organic Army Aviation personnel.

    After the creation of the Army Air Forces, the Army Ground Forces retained the use of light aircraft for artillery forward observation and reconnaissance in June 1942. When the United States Air Force was established as a separate service in 1947, the Army developed its light planes and rotary wing aircraft to support its ground operations. The Korean War and Vietnam War proved the growing capabilities of these aviation assets to perform a variety of missions not covered by the Air Force.

    The Korean War provided new challenges and opportunities for Army Aviation. Organic Army Aviation had acquired its first helicopters, thirteen H-13 Sioux, in 1947, shortly before the U.S. Air Force became independent of the Army. In Korea, the Army employed the O-1 Bird Dog and other improved fixed wing planes, but also helicopters...

    The “Howze Board,” or “Tactical Mobility Requirements Board,” was established in 1962 to develop and test the concept of air mobility... recommendations were tested by the 11th Air Assault Division (Test) from 1963 to 1965. In 1965, the 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile) was organized and sent to Vietnam, where it repeatedly demonstrated the validity of the airmobile concept in actual combat...

    The most widely used helicopter, the UH-1 Iroquois, or Huey, began to arrive in Vietnam in significant numbers in 1964... The AH-1 Cobra arrived in 1967 to partially replace the Huey in its gun ship capacity. Other important helicopters in Vietnam included the CH-47 Chinook, the OH-6 Cayuse, the OH-58 Kiowa, and the CH-54 Tarhe...

    New or radically modified aircraft were adopted from the late 1970s into the mid-1980s. These included the UH-60 Black Hawk, AH-64 Apache, D-model of the CH-47 Chinook, and OH-58D version of the Kiowa...

    '...Filmed on location at Fort Rucker, Alabama, home of the Army Aviation School, viewers will see the story of air mobility in today's Army. The flexible, modern Army bears a family resemblance to the Army of 1918 and 1942, but that is where the similarity ends. Today, we must have a highly mobile, self-sufficient battle force. To control his widely dispersed elements, the ground commander must be constantly aware of the battle situation. He must know where the enemy is, and what he is doing. And, he must be able to transport his own forces to battle at top speed, at the point where they are most needed. It is here, that Army aviation is needed. In this program viewers will see how Army aviation moves men at 100 miles an hour, how the helicopter may replace the truck in moving supplies, and how the Army's new light aircraft give the ground commander "eyes in the skies." The motto of the Army Aviation School, on whose training fields this program originates, expresses well this new concept of Army Aircraft in the Sky over Army Troops on the Ground... "Above the Best."'

    Inside a Soviet rocket graveyard: Haunting images reveal how boosters that once helped launch a spaceplane have been abandoned for two decades
    • Super-strong rocket developed by the Soviet Union in 1970s has been left in a disused hanger since 1991
    • The Energia was designed to launch the Buran, an unmanned Soviet spaceplane that orbited the Earth in 1988

    • The drones are designed to take off and land on water to avoid populated areas
    • A proof of concept model carrying 700lbs of cargo will launch this summer
    • The finished vehicle will carry up to 200,000 lbs and could slash cargo costs

    Patrick does amazing seminars too:

    He gave me some great notes while I was rough cutting this video;
    here is some additional context from Patrick that I couldn't fit into the episode:

    The part about talking about sand vs rocks for decent places to set down is pretty geographically specific, there are places where that won’t really hold true.

    Along those same lines there is certainly plenty mentioned about vetting the bar for the season, but I always teach vet the bar every single time. I have been on a bar that had a barbwire strung across it 1 week after I had been there, and only caught it because of a piece of surveyors tape fluttering in the wind. Also on that note power lines can pop up quick. On a drainage that huge probably not, On narrower drainages we have seen high tension lines strung up in a matter of days.
    All in you really can’t be too careful when vetting an area. I teach straight out of the helicopter operating handbook about High, mid, low level observations before committing. I realize these guys know the area very well and you might want to reiterate that strongly.

    FLIGHT CHOPS DISCLAIMER:
    I am a "weekend warrior" private pilot, I fly for fun with no intentions of going commercial. I have had my PPL for over 15 years, but still consider each flight a learning experience - I generally take detailed notes after each flight to remind myself what went well or what I could do to improve.... Having the GoPro cameras to record flights like this is invaluable. I find these self analysis videos very helpful in my constant quest to improve, and am happy to share. Feedback is invited; however, please keep it positive.
