    Welcome everyone, to the Official Aircraft Video Thread, the thread for all military / civilian and other aircraft videos.

    Check out this breathtaking SR-71 Blackbird video, it totally rocks with the background music. It's divine....

    Just curious CD: what exactly are you trying to convey when you put a rolleyes emoticon after a statement? I'm not getting it.
    I enjoy being wrong too much to change my mind.

    That I'm impressed or excited about something. I'm always a jovial character.

    Another distinctive feature is its three-wheel landing gear, something different from Foxhound and Concord's offset tandem twin wheels.

    I can't believe we're not hanging operational ASATs off of those things.

    Treaties.

    The F-15 was the launch platform for our air-launched ASAT's, much cheaper to operate, and already wired and configured for external carriage.

    Dale,
    It could possibly be because the skin on the Blackbird "creeps" or expands at high speed and I dont think that would sit well with a weapons bay door in the open position at high speed and would probably compromise her intended mission and perhaps even make it become unstable. Her skin seals itself during high speed flight as it does with its fuel tanks since they leak alot of fuel when shes cool and sitting on the ground its like a watering can for flowers. Just a thought mind you.

    Another spectacular Mig-29 video. Watch "Maverickski" shake a leg on the tarmac before taking off his Mig :

    Just one question to the Mods / Admins of this Board, I completely forgot, is it alright to copy paste links in a post, or is that not permitted. Its not the same as hotlinking right?
