Some landing and take-off highlights in awkward wind conditions at BHX this winter (a record winter for stormy conditions in the UK). Note the frequent flexing of the planes' wings in response to the turbulence.
Of the five "missed approaches" shown, three diverted to other airports, two were "go arounds" and landed successfully on second attempt.
The huge aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt and destroyer USS Winston Churchill, are visiting Portsmouth UK, its great to see them, and amazing how many aircraft are on the deck of the carrier.
Stratolaunch is now World’s Largest Plane by Wingspan. Bigger than An-225. Here is First Rollout https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00FMMIaKYgE
What a Monster! Finally for the first time I've filmed this spectacular World largest jumbo jet. Magnificent airplane. larger then Airbus A380 It's been filmed in 4K resolution. The pilot made very impressive visual runway inspection by doing a "Fly pass" or "Low pass" followed by soft landing at Doncaster Sheffield Robin Hood Airport. This cargo plane seems so huge but so Maneuverable
Antonov An-225 Mriya which has Wingspan of 88.4 m (nearly nine Double decker Buses) and Empty weight is 285, 000 kg flew here from Kiev Ukraine. This is really very rare visitor. I'm never saw this amazing aircraft before, I want to share it with you. Great experience to see her very close. She's 27 years old, still doing her job. I hope you will enjoy watching this video footage. Please don't forget to rate it! Thank you!

The world's biggest plane is parked at Perth International Airport tonight on it's first visit to Australia. There was traffic chaos as 16, 000 spectators came to see the Antonov AN 225 cargo plane touch down.
An Ilyushin IL-18 Coot ( Alada D2-FFR) Operated by DHL aborts takeoff from the 8202 ft long airstrip at Cabinda, West Africa. The pilot has done an excellent job; — there's a busy public road beyond the boundary fence, less than 50 metres from the end of the runway.
Please don't ask me why he aborted; Sorry, I simply don't know.
I have been advised that in point of fact this is a (former) IL-22 airborne command post stripped of mission equipment — note the fin tip pod which regular IL-18s do not have. Thanks to MrZlodeus for this info
This old coot remained in service; spotted at Luanda on 13th July 2009
Sint Maarten has one of the most challenging runways in the world. Join Captain ten Velde on board of a flight to this tropical island.

***PLEASE READ THE DESCRIPTION BELOW***
Yesterday, early in the morning...What you see is what happened.
An UTair Boeing 767-300 (VQ-BSX) incoming from Moscow as UT5187 and Aerolíneas Argentinas Airbus A340-300 (LV-FPV)...
The Utair 767 was about to land on Runway 02 while the Argentinas was crossing the runway.
By the time russian pilots sight Argentinas (they were taxiing to Holding point of RW25R for take-off) on runway while they were on final approach, they did their best making an impressive and close go around.
After that incidence the plane landed safely on runway 02, and the Argentinas took-off heading Buenos Aires
Hopefully nothing happened.
I hope you enjoy the video, Greetings from BCN, Miguel Ángel.
Here are 10 mega-construction projects on track to open soon.
Many developers, engineers, and architects have grand ideas, but actually pulling off breathtakingly enormous endeavors is something relatively few accomplish.
Here are 10 mega-construction projects on track to open soon.
Number 10. Beijing Daxing International Airport, China. Despite delays, estimates still place the initial completion stage of what will become the world’s largest airport within this decade. Once fully up an operational, the facility is anticipated to handle roughly 100 million passengers per year.
Number 9. Kingdom Tower, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Among the many challenges in erecting epic buildings is securing the required funds, but this mixed-used development has finally surmounted that obstacle. Completion is currently slated for 2020, at which time the Kingdom Tower will likely be named the world’s tallest building.
Number 8. Chernobyl Arch, Ukraine. The 32, 000-ton, multi-billion dollar steel structure is intended to keep lingering radioactivity from the 1986 meltdown contained so clean up can move forward. Once installed, likely in 2017, it will remain in use for at least 100 years.
Number 7. Hotel Abraj Kudai, Mecca, Saudi Arabia. When the hotel’s doors open in 2017, the massive hospitality venue will boast the most rooms in the world. The 10, 000 spaces it has available far outnumber the roughly 6, 000 offered by the current record holder, The MGM Grand Hotel of Las Vegas.
Number 6. Crossrail Project, London, England. Not only is work progressing at a steady pace, it’s happening in the midst of one of the world’s most populated and bustling cities. The first station was finished in September of 2015 and is expected to start welcoming passengers in 2018.
Number 5. Los Angeles Stadium, Inglewood, California. The Rams are officially returning to Los Angeles, and plans to build the team a fancy NFL-worthy stadium are underway. Making the 300-acre arena fan and team-ready is expected to take about 3 years and $2.1 billion.
Number 4. Gotthard Base Tunnel, Switzerland. Boring a 35-mile hole in the base of the Swiss Alps is no small undertaking, but persistence has paid off. The tunnel, which will offer quick passage through the mountains, has arranged a grand opening celebration for June of 2016.
Number 3. Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Walkway, China. For some, walking across a bridge roughly 1000 feet above solid ground isn’t quite terrifying enough. That group will no doubt be cheering come May of 2016, when this glass-bottomed, 1200-foot long pedestrian passageway – the most elevated and lengthy on the planet — opens.
Number 2. Shanghai Disney Resort, China. Disney creates magic, but it doesn’t happen overnight. After about 7 years of planning and building, the company’s latest theme park will open on June 16th. The expansive grounds include rides, attractions, characters, and entertainment. Right next door is an entire Disney-themed town.
Number 1. World One, Mumbai, India. Among the tallest buildings currently in the works, the entirely residential tower should be ready in 2017. In terms of architecture and design, the massive undertaking has been compared to Chicago’s landmark Willis Tower.
Which mega-construction project do you find most exciting?
C-17 Lands at small commuter airport by accident
This C-17 landed at the small commuter airport (TPF — Peter O'Knight airport) just south of downtown on Davis Islands, in Tampa instead of Mac Dill AFB.
Take a look at the two airports on on Google maps.The runways are lined up closely enough that this is not the first time that a military "heavy", has set up for final approach from the east before an "oh shoot" moment when they realized that there are no private homes along the runway at MacDill AFB, (who's runway is long enough to be designated an alternative for the space shuttle).
When I was shooting news in Tampa, I shot the departure of a Brazilian C-130 who did the same thing.
This ought to be a great story for this pilot's, great, great, grand children!
Here is the link to the landing video shot by Ryan, one of the pilots trapped at the airport all day till this take off:
Also, they backed the tail of the C17 over the water in the channel before takeoff!
