    Here's a cool Il-76 nosewheel up landing. Pilot clearly has wheely'ing skills and wanted to impress his bird in the control tower.

    (Joking of course, the nose up attitude is all about slowing the plane down by creating extra drag on the wings)

    This particular plane is a celebrity machine. It was forced down by Taleban pirates in their Mig-21 in the 1990's and the plane and crew were held hostage at Kandahar for many months before they managed to bamboozle the ragheads and made a run for the plane and dashed 4 freedom to Iran in their recaptured freighter.

    The Talebs figured they'd head North so was looking for them in the wrong place.

    It was made into a decent Russian film called "Kandahar", worth watching. This is the actual plane.

    Another amusing Il-76 clip with amusing running commentary from inbred Australian control tower mongs.
    This particular take off was done in hot conditions and with a very heavily laden plane, meaning that it's difficult to get airborne and that a loooong runway is needed because the air is so thin.

    The Il-76 was designed to operate from rough strips so the pilot probably figured that he's got all the time in the world.

    Very intense in-flight F-16 cockpit footage of the largest daytime bombing strike of Desert Storm. The first video shows 'Wild Weasles' -- aircraft tasked with engaging and destroying SAM missiles and batteries -- and the second video is the main strikeforce hitting a large refinery in downtown Baghdad:

    Some more Il-76 adventures.


    Cross-wind landing


    Dirt strip / rough field landings


    Luanda approach as seen through the observation deck


    Ice runway landings, looks scary as fuck


    Little accident on landing, plane may have come in too fast and pilot put it in a loop to avoid going off the runway at the end.
    Plane ends up in the bush.

    The Me 163 "Komet" was the world's first manned rocket-powered aircraft, over 370 were built, becoming operational in the spring of '44.

    The delta wing airframe used a bipropellant rocket to surpass Mach 0.84 (621mph), knocking at the door of the sound barrier.

    The airframe started out as a glider in its prototypical form, were it performed with uncanny speed and stability--designer Lippisch relates an anecdote from towed-start flight tests in '41:

    Udet was so impressed, after the project was fully explained to him he assisted in acquiring a higher priority grade for the Me 163 development.

    The engine that wound up in the 'powered egg' was the HWK 109-509 using a two-component hypergolic fuel/oxidizer combination, controlled by a dual-flow turbopump, to regulate the rate of combustion and thereby the amount of thrust.

    Hypergolic propellants consist of a fuel (hydrazine) known as C-stoff, and an oxidizer (hydrogen peroxide) known as T-stoff, which spontaneously ignite upon contact with each other. These fuels are terribly volatile and extremely toxic, adding to the already considerable danger of manned controlled rocket flight.

    Death by T-stoff: Pilots Dissolved

    One had to be extraordinarily ballsy to strap on an Me 163, what with the explosive, corrosive fuels, blinding acceleration, no landing gear; although celebrated German aviatrix Hanna Reitsch flew in them, crashing and badly injuring herself on her fifth Me 163 test flight.

    I did a fly-in hike to this lake a few years back; exciting landing/take-off given the topography:
