Video of the Dash 8 that was crashed, before the crash. Doing a Barrel roll! In a similar vein the C130 doing a loop at Farnborough.

Photos from the air shows I visited 2019!
By the way, I'm so glad that the pilot safely ejected in the Snowbirds #5 crash in Atlanta yesterday! The aircraft is lost, but it fulfilled its ultimate mission that is to protect the life of the pilot. Job well done, Snowbirds #5 airplane! I don't know if the same airplane was assigned to #5 yesterday, but I anyway put Snowbirds #5 I took in Latrobe air show practice below.

388th Fighter Wing wrote: The active duty 388th and Reserve 419th Fighter Wings conducted an F-35A Combat Power Exercise with 52 aircraft at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, Jan. 6, 2020.
The exercise, which was planned for months, demonstrated their ability to employ a large force of F-35As – testing readiness in the areas of personnel accountability, aircraft generation, ground operations, flight operations, and combat capability against air and ground targets.
A little more than four years after receiving their first combat-coded F-35A Lightning II aircraft, Hill’s fighter wings have achieved full warfighting capability.

ANTONOV Company wrote: AN-225 Mriya’s model was installed at ICAO’s office in Montreal (2020/01/27)
On January 24, 2020, the event devoted to installation of a model of the world biggest transport AN-225 Mriya was held at ICAO’s office in Montreal. This model in scale of 1:50 (wing span of more than 1.7 m) was produced at ANTONOV Company and presented by Ukrainian delegation, including H.E. Andriy Shevchenko, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Canada, and Volodymyr Isaenko, Rector of National Aviation University. ANTONOV Company was represented by Mykhailo Kharchenko, director of ANTONOV Company’s air transport subdivision, who was a member of the AN-225 first crew. Nowadays, he is a head of the airlines operating Mriya.
In his speech Mr. Kharchenko noted: «ANTONOV Company is very proud of our close cooperation with ICAO and always have paid great attention to flight safety. One of the proofs of our team`s efforts in this direction is ICAO`s Edward Warner Award granted to our former General Designer Petro Balabuyev. I would like to note, that we are constantly working on our fleet upgrade to provide our airplane`s compliance with ICAO`s requirements. Moreover, we are restructuring our company in accordance with ICAO recommendations. That allows ANTONOV`s giants to continue performing unique transportations worldwide.
We are very proud that starting from today a model of the world-known largest cargo airplane AN-225, which is still unsurpassed achievement of the aviation industry, would be presented at ICAO`s office».
On the same day the ICAO museum was named after Olumuywa Benard Aliu, former President of the Council of ICAO.
P.S. Seems like I should update DAT-file for "JETMAN" addon nowXDubai wrote: On Friday, February 14th, 2020: #Jetman Vince Reffet took off, headed south towards Jumeirah Beach Residence, building speed and height. In 8 seconds he had reached 100 meters height, in 12 seconds 200m, 19 seconds 500m, and reached 1000m in 30 seconds at an average speed of 130 knots. At the end of a 3-minute flight punctuated by a roll and a loop at 1800m altitude, Jetman Vince Reffet opened his parachute at 1500m before landing back at Skydive Dubai.
It is the first time that a #JetmanDubai pilot could combine hovering safely at a limited altitude and flying aerobatics at high altitude in the same flight. Controlled from the ground by the human body, the equipment enables Jetman Dubai to reach speeds of 400kmh, as well as hovering, changing direction and performing loops.
Held under the theme ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’, #Expo2020 will be the first World Expo ever hosted in the Middle East, Africa and South Asia, region since the first edition in London in 1851.
