Want to show off something interesting that you stumbled across in your journey across the blagotubes? Maybe discuss it? Go for it.

B-25 absolutely dwarfed by B-36 while flying in formation.

Haha! Wow. Isn't the B-36 the bomber that holds it's very own private jet?...The Thunderflash?

Did they collide? The B-1 seemed O.K.

The falcon was probably fine... they're designed to pull like 15gs, I think it can handle its wing hitting the ground. Probably nothing more than some scratched paint, unless there was a missile on the rail.

This video, a fairly detailed intro to the modifications offered as the Super Hornet International proposal, should be of interest to military aircraft fans.

"Yeah, there's this cool new engine that we won't show you..."

That pod is such a strange concept. I never would have even considered it.

They could at least go around to that side of the aircraft...

That jet is currently just a mockup, and does not have the new engines yet - and externally, there will most likely not be a substantial difference.

A great video of how a jet engine looks like from the exhaust. Might be interesting for modders. Hope this is the good section though...
