Belgian Air Force Days 2018 Highlights
DefenseWebTV


Published on Sep 17, 2018
“Ready for the future” is what the Belgian Air Force (BAF) showed during the Belgian Air Force Days 2018, which were held on 7-9 September at the Kleine-Brogel Airbase. The BAF is in full transition with all its capabilities in order to face the security challenges of the future. The modern and powerful NH90 Cayman helicopter is used for land and maritime support without forgetting its renowned search and rescue task. The A400M Atlas is soon expected as Belgium's new strategic and tactical transport capability, replacing the old but famous C-130E Hercules. Even in the world of the remotely piloted aircraft the BAF will continue to invest in a new program. Finally there is the replacement of the country's combat capability, the ACCaP program. The F-16 FALCON will gradually be replaced in the coming years by a newer fighter.

Ka-52 Alligator: Strike Helicopter. The Tank Destroyer
RT Documentary



Published on Sep 17, 2018
The Kamov Ka-52 Alligator is one of the Russian Air Force's most powerful and advanced anti-tank helicopters. Its impressive flight and combat capabilities make the Alligator a highly manoeuvrable flying armoury that can operate around the clock in almost all weather conditions.

The Alligator can fly backwards, sideways, and soar as low as nine metres. Its contra-rotating rotors are driven by two engines, each delivering 2,400 horsepower. The Ka-52 can even perform complex aerobatic stunts like the funnel and zoom – even while loaded up with almost three tonnes of powerful weapons.

Armed with an anti-aircraft gun, guided Ataka missiles and unguided S-8 rockets, the Alligator is a menace to targets on the ground and in the air. This attack helicopter's cockpit is armoured to keep the crew safe from bullets and it has an electronic jamming system to fend off incoming missiles.

In an emergency, a unique escape system allows both pilots to eject safely after the rotor blades have been jettisoned.

Check out this fearsome war machine with Combat Approved. In this episode, we visit the Arsenyev factory where the Ka-52 is built, take a ‘test-drive’ to see how this super-chopper performs and join in for a mock dogfight. We also meet the commander of the first military unit to fly Alligators on active duty.

A FUN FLIGHT at a Military Airport
Stefan Drury


Published on Sep 19, 2018
EP153: Flying a Cirrus SR22 to Military Airport RAAF Point Cook, then flying over Melbourne City, and learning about the Fun Flight Aviation Event. Plus I chat to Sarah from Fun Flight about the event and how YOU can get involved.

Fun Flight Website: http://www.funflight.org/ - Fun Flight: Helping kids affected by adversity through aviation.

Fun Flight is an awesome event, if you can spare some flying hours or simply some time, I really would love you to reach out and help. If we can all spare just a small amount of our time, we can maybe put a smile on the face of a child who's having a hard time. Thanks for supporting Fun Flight friends.

I filmed this before my Outback Adventure series, but had to wait for some permissions before releasing it. Hence why the date is in August, and the Episode numbering is wrong, oh and why KJN still has a 4-blade prop... Continuity much?

MiG-31: The Near-Space Plane. Russia’s super-fast interceptor
RT Documentary


Published on Sep 30, 2018
Imagine flying a plane so high that the world looks spherical and the sky is pitch-black. The Mikoyan Mig-31 fighter is the only jet plane in the world to make it possible to fly on the very edge of space.

With an incredible speed of 3,000 km/h, the Soviet-designed interceptor is the world’s fastest serving aircraft, and it can fly twice as high as a commercial flight. Travelling at more than twice the speed of sound, the MiG-31 can touch the stratosphere and breach what's known as the Armstrong limit. beyond which a pilot’s tears and saliva would boil without a pressure suit.

Even at such incredible heights, the MiG-31 can still deal with its enemies. The fighter is armed with long and short-range missiles that can be launched against high-speed targets.

At Khotilovo air base, RTD attempts to give viewers a first-hand experience of near-space travel aboard this unique aircraft by mounting cameras on the airframe and inside the cockpit. See what breaking the sound barrier looks like and why, despite being designed in the 1970s, the MiG-31remains at the top of its game and unrivalled to this day.

Published on Oct 17, 2018
EP164: As requested - here's my budget and costs for the Outback Flying trip. I share my budgeting technique, show how I calculate my costs, and give some additional planning tips.

IMPORTANT: I'm sharing this information because a) I've been asked to by quite a few people (pilots and instructors alike) and b) because hopefully this will help you with planning your own flying adventures whatever aircraft you're in and whatever trip you're planning. Please do not take this as a 'flexing' exercise, it's absolutely not meant in that way. I hope you find this useful and that it helps you plan your own epic flying adventures.

LOCKHEED F-104G STARFIGHTER PILOT TRAINING FILM PREFLIGHT CHECKOUT GEORGE AIR FORCE BASE 45054
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Nov 7, 2018
This pilot training film for the Lockheed F-104G Starfighter focuses on George Air Force Base, part of Tactical Air Command and home to the 4443 School Squadron, where initial training in the F-104G is conducted. Pilots trained at this school train allied nations in the operation of the F-104G. This includes pilots from Norway, Taiwan Republic of China, West Germany, Belgium, Italy, and others. At 1:38 an inspection of the aircraft is undertaken. At 2:14, pre-flight inspection is discussed -- a nine item check that is spelled out at 2:40. The rest of the film is used to show all the various details of this list.

The Lockheed F-104 Starfighter is a single-engine, supersonic interceptor aircraft which later became widely used as an attack aircraft. It was originally developed by Lockheed for the United States Air Force (USAF), but was later produced by several other nations, seeing widespread service outside the United States. One of the Century Series of fighter aircraft, it was operated by the air forces of more than a dozen nations from 1958 to 2004. Its design team was led by Kelly Johnson, who contributed to the development of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning, Lockheed U-2, Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird and other Lockheed aircraft.

The F-104 set numerous world records, including both airspeed and altitude records. Its success was marred by the Lockheed bribery scandals, in which Lockheed had given bribes to a considerable number of political and military figures in various nations to influence their judgment and secure several purchase contracts; this caused considerable political controversy in Europe and Japan.

The poor safety record of the Starfighter also brought the aircraft into the public eye, especially in German Air Force service. Fighter ace Erich Hartmann was forced to retire from the Luftwaffe due to his outspoken opposition to selection of the F-104.

The final production version of the fighter model was the F-104S, an all-weather interceptor designed by Aeritalia for the Italian Air Force, and equipped with radar-guided AIM-7 Sparrow missiles. An advanced F-104 with a high-mounted wing, known as the CL-1200 Lancer, was considered, but did not proceed past the mock-up stage.

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 like: "01:00:12:00 -- President Roosevelt is seen meeting with Winston Churchill at the Quebec Conference."

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. Entirely film backed, this material is available for licensing in 24p HD and 2k. For more information visit http://www.PeriscopeFilm.com

AOPA Live This Week - November 15, 2018

The last two B–29s still flying converge on one event, sparking joy and awe among a crowd that spans generations. We visit the aviation program at Delaware State University, a small school with a huge legacy. Mike Goulian has never entered the final race of the Red Bull season with the championship points lead. A win in Fort Worth, Texas, would seal the deal.

Air Traffic Control at an ISLAND AIRPORT
Stefan Drury


Published on Nov 14, 2018
EP172: Travelling from Melbourne to meet Brian from Air Traffic Control and see how ATC works at Hamilton Island Airport. See Qantas, Virgin and Qantaslink departures and arrivals, see how they're controlled, learn about the paper strips and hear how ATC has changed since Cyclone Debbie.

Thanks to Airservices Australia for helping make this happen, and especially to Mel and Rosemarie for organising and Brian for his time this afternoon. What an aviation legend he is, 40 years as an Air Traffic Controller.

Lockheed Martin and NASA begin building 'son of Concorde' X-59 plane that could see the return of supersonic passenger travel

  • The supersonic plane is officially known as the X-59 Quiet Supersonic Technology aircraft
  • The 'Son of Concorde' will cut flight times in half without producing sonic boom, NASA hopes
  • The X-59 is designed to cruise at 55,000 ft at a speed of 940 mph, with the first flight scheduled for 2021
  • NASA says it will create a sound 'about as loud as a car door closing'

David McCampbell: Ace of Aces
USNavalInstitute


Published on Jul 20, 2011
"Ace of Aces" is the dramatic David McCampbell story, complemented by stunning vintage World War II film footage and punctuated with Captain McCampbell's own words, recorded for the U.S. Naval Institute's Oral History program. In this professionally produced video, McCampbell's candor makes the story of the U.S. Navy's all-time top fighter ace come alive, from his boyhood and early naval career to his 34 career kills and earning the Medal of Honor for his valor at the Battle of Leyte Gulf. So climb into the cockpit with this extraordinary naval aviator for a memorable flight back in time.
