If you've ever wondered exactly how those cascade sliding-door reversers work...

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN DAL, I landed AT DAL. On the other hand, I did land in Dallas.

Russian heavy bombers (Tu-95, Tu-22M3, and Tu-160!) launching attacks, with a cameo by escorting Iranian F-14 Tomcats. Regardless of the politics, it's fascinating footage of some pretty exotic hardware.

Sooo... browsing google for YF-4E pictures, when I stumbled across this very curious looking YF-22, with a 57th Wing tail code no less.

Image

What is it with me posting F-22 pics lately? I'm a YF-23 fan gosh darnit...

In the 50s, EVAER (Varig Flight School) received from Brazilian Airforce an North American AT-6D Texan. An advanced aircraft, that will help the formation of new pilots.
At that time the aircraft was parked on the street with a canvas covered (what the heck :lol: because is missing hangar places).
14-JUL-1956
A young mechanic (medium abilities) stole the T-6 and started making low flights over the airport area in dangerous attitudes. At the airport there was a crowd of people watching the plane doing dangerous Steep curves, going from one side to the other, showing no intention to land. Another T6 aircraft sent to escort the situation without result
Near the hangar, there was a parked Super-Constellation. The AT-6 flying at times close to the Super, as if the pilot wanted to hit him. On one such occasion the AT-6 came down flying toward the Super, almost hit him, but ended up crashing violently against a wall of hangars, exploding and burning.
After the accident a young, sad, said he received a ticket [The young flew with the aircraft over his family's house and dropped a message.], his brother said he would have killed himself, apologized and say goodbye to the family.

The 23 years mechanic, got dismissed to have tampered with your card fraudulently-point to win a few illegal overtime, He then plans a revenge plan against VARIG, it seems, destroying one of precious Super Constellations, at the expense of life itself, which could not do.
A curious thing in this whole story is the fact that this guy never had any flight training in your life. It was only a mechanical medium category, just knowing how to make some repairs in aircraft. Never flown! How so he could take off, collect the plane's landing gear, switch tanks in flight and fly low to the ground, causing great inclination curves, and fly to Canoas, locating the house of their fathers, which is somewhat difficult even for those with flying experience. This constituted a real mystery, which was never clarified!
