Piloted by an F-18 fighter pilot, we see just what the Boeing Dreamliner can do when put to the test. Stretching the aircraft and pushing it to the limit of its ability, the pilot guides the 787 to climb and soar at a degree and rate...Show More Summary
Awesome footage of a U.S. Navy pilot from Carrier Strike Group 8 and his F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. The plane takes off, practices aloft and lands back at the aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. Hat Tip Link
What does flying an F18 fighter jet feel like? This may be the closest you'll ever get to flying the $67 million machine. Page Maverick and Goose, hen hit play or go to Link [YouTube] - via Trending Now
How awesome would it be to sit at the gears of a fighter jet and see the world from tens of thousands of feet above ground at speeds of hundreds of miles per hour? Most of us will never get the opportunity to fly a fighter jet, of course, but worry not, you can now [...]
I love the GoPros or whatever cameras the people at the Carrier Strike Group 8 used to make this awesome video. It shows the complete experience of flying a VFA-103 Boeing F/A-18F Super Hornet on the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D Eisenhower. [Flight Global] More »
I love this photo of the USS John C. Stennis nuclear supercarrier. It looks like a tiny model thanks to the F-18's exhaust fumes, which distort the air above part of the deck and turns the image into a bit of a tilt-shift photo. Mor...

I saw this photo in my feed and I couldn't believe my eyes. Two grounded F-18s under fire? Not quite: They are two F/A-18 Hornets assigned to the Blue Angels, starring in the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar 2012 Air Show. Just a controlled "wall of fire," as the US Navy calls it. More »
Beautiful timelapses and awesome angles filmed with GoPros inside F-18 cockpits. That's what you will find in this video filmed by the men and women of the US Navy. I'm amazed at the skill of these people. It starts slow, but keep watching and it soon gets awesome. Worth of a Top Gun reboot. More »
