    Amazing things in the air

    Better bring several throw up bags with you if you're gonna take a flight anywhere on this beauty!

    Pretty much everything in the air still amazes me. Except maybe alien spaceships with death rays. Those scare me a bit...

    Beautiful aircraft, some nice flying! I remember watching Concorde at Farnborough once many years ago, it did a vertical climb from right in front of where we were standing... the phrase 'earth-shattering' is the closest I can think to describe the experience.

    You can see the Aileron. Elevator and Rudder inputs. as it's flying. It's real vid.

    I could imagine all the alarms going off in the cockpit ...

    That's a nice video. That plane sure can climb. I once saw a video of an airliner (I don't know which one) do a barrel roll.

    I love flying. Neat video Hawg!

    I once flew with a friend who piloted a little Cessna. As we were taking off another light plane was landing. My friend had to do a quick manoever to avoid hitting ... It would have been a disaster... and it was stomach heaving moment.

    Since none of the control surfaces have moved, I don't see how it could be real.

    That 787 is a pretty plane for an airliner.

    Ugh I still have to go on flight checks after an aircraft is fixed. The pilots main duty on those is to make people in the back puke. So not only are you hoping everything is working as it should, but you're also trying not to projectile vomit everywhere.

    Nice videos guys! I am always impressed with air travel, although I get a little nervous on landing.

    None of those planes are anywhere near as cool as this Peregrine Falcon though.
