    DOOMED passenger plane MH370 that vanished with 239 onboard was downed intentionally in the South Indian Ocean in a spot that has never been searched, an expert has claimed. The former French Air Force air traffic controller, Gilles Diharce, spoke exclusively to The Sun Online about evidence that he says proves the disappearance of the Malaysian Airlines Flight was no accident.  8The first piece of MH370 that washed up on Reunion Island helped investigators work out what could have happened to the doomed flightCredit: Reuters 8A documentary detailed the moments when the plane is believed to have crashed into the waterCredit: National Geographic 8 Since the flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing disappeared from radar screens on March 8, 2014, conflicting theories have surfaced and the aircraft's final resting place has never been established.  The flight, with pilot Zaharie Ahmad Shah at the helm, vanished from flight radar - sparking the world’s biggest aviation mystery.  The official script for the Boeing-777's disappearance suggests the plane executed a dramatic U-turn less than an hour into its planned flight before plummeting...
    After more than half a century of production, the final Boeing 747 plane rolled off an assembly line in Washington state on Tuesday evening. The machine will head to Atlas Air to become a cargo plane, as the Chicago-based company retires the model that was known as the Queen of the Skies. The 747 model, distinctive for its massive size and prominent second floor bulge, became Boeing's most popular plane. Its size allowed it to be part of many iconic and revolutionary space-related projects over the years, including ferrying the space Shuttle from a landing strip in California to a launch site across the country in Florida. Next week, Virgin Orbit's modified Boeing 747, Cosmic Girl, is set to take off after 10pm GMT Wednesday, December 14, and soar to a high altitude of around 35,000 feet. Modern space entrepreneur Elon Musk shared in the sentimental send-off of the Boeing 747, writing on Twitter, 'One of the best aircraft ever,' under a post from the company. The final Boeing 747 jumbo jet rolled off the assembly line in Washington state...
    AN easyJet plane came within a few feet of a drone in one of the nearest ever misses involving an airliner, a report said. The Airbus A320’s two pilots could pick out the framed structure below the device when it came into view at 16,000ft above the Kent coast. 1An easyJet plane came within a few feet of a drone in one of the nearest ever misses involving an airliner, a report saidCredit: Alamy The plan’es first officer thought he heard a “thud” and feared the drone had hit the jet, which was flying from Gatwick to Rhodes with 180 passengers on board. An inspection in Greece revealed no damage. The pilots saw the “black and cylindrical” device heading towards them as they flew at 400mph about 20 miles west of Dover. The “unidentified flying object” passed “directly underneath” the aircraft at 16,000ft — 40 times the usual maximum permitted drone flight height of 400ft.

    A Swedish woman who moved to America to go school and became a flight instructor is dead after a mistake from an 18-year-old student.  Viktoria Theresie Izabelle Ljungman, 23, attended Virginia's Hampton University on a tennis scholarship, eventually becoming a flight instructor.  On Thursday at around 3 p.m., she and Oluwagbohunmi Ayomide Oyebode, 18, got into a plane that pulled to a steep angle which caused the engine to stall and the plane to crash into a ditch, according to WMAR. Ljungman, now a licensed commercial pilot who lived in Williamsburg, Virginia after graduation, was pronounced dead on the scene of the crash.    Oyebode, a Maryland native, and another 18-year-old male were the only other people on the plane. They've been taken to a local hospital with what's described as life-threatening injuries.   Viktoria Theresie Izabelle Ljungman, 23, attended Virginia's Hampton University on a tennis scholarship, eventually becoming a flight instructor On Thursday at around 3 p.m., she and Oluwagbohunmi Ayomide Oyebode, 18, got into a plane that pulled to a steep angle which caused the engine to stall and the...

    A four-time Olympian who survived a fiery plane crash with her husband and niece says she thought they were going to die but had 'no time to be scared' as the aircraft suddenly took a nosedive and plummeted to the ground.  Miraculously, all three of them - including their beloved golden retriever puppy - survived the horrific crash when their plane went down near a Michigan airport last month. Survivors Chirine Njeim, 37,  who represented Lebanon in both the Summer and Winter Olympics, her pilot husband, Ronny Kamal, 44, and their 17-year-old niece, Siena Kamal, spoke out for the first time Tuesday morning on Good Morning America (GMA) where they recounted terrifying moments and how they narrowly escaped tragedy. 'The world sort of slowed down then and those moments felt a little bit like an eternity,' Kamal told GMA.  Kamal has 26 years of aviation experience but said on Tuesday that he still doesn't know what caused the single-engine Beechcraft A36 to crash shortly after takeoff from Ray Community Airport in Ray Township on July 24.  Kamal and his wife Njeim said that in...
    AN ex-Air Force intelligence expert has revealed what the United States military may already know about the increase of UFO sightings. Dan Reedy served for over eight years in the Air Force as an intelligence analyst. 2Air Force intelligence expert, Dan Reedy, has shared his theory about UFO sightings (stock image)Credit: Getty 2The truth behind these sightings may lie with the improvement of aircraft technologyCredit: Reuters In a recent opinion piece Reedy had published, he exposed what the US Air Force really knows about extra-terrestrial life. This piece comes after Congress held a public discussion about UFOs back in May. Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray and Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie spoke with a congressional subcommittee about the highly-debated subject.

    China fired its most direct warning shot yet amid reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may visit Taiwan on Friday, saying that if the speaker's plane is accompanied by U.S. fighter jets, they would not rule out shooting them down. 'If US fighter jets escort Pelosi's plane into Taiwan, it is invasion. The PLA has the right to forcibly dispel Pelosi's plane and the US fighter jets, including firing warning shots and making tactical movement of obstruction. If ineffective, then shoot them down,' Hu Xijin, a commentator with the Chinese state-affiliated Global Times, wrote on Twitter.   Earlier China warned the U.S. against crossing a 'red line' as it released not-so-subtle warnings against the speaker, which China has reasoned is number three in line in U.S. government, from visiting Taiwan.  The U.S. must be prepared to 'bear all consequences' if Pelosi chooses to visit Taiwan, Chinese foreign minister Zhao Lijian said in a briefing Friday.  National Security Spokesman John Kirby said Friday the Pentagon has seen no indication of a military threat.  'We just don't have any concrete indications of something...
    U.S. forces are now considering sending fighter jets to Ukraine as it continues to face an assault from Russia, according to Air Force Secretary Frank Kendall. Lieutenant Colonel Kendall said that Ukraine is busy dealing with its 'right now problem' in an allusion to its ground-based fighting in the Donbas region. But he also said that assistance in the form of aircraft may be needed. 'We'll be open to discussions with them about what their requirements are and how we might be able to satisfy them,' the Air Force head said during the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado on Wednesday. Kendall appeared along with Air Force Chief of Staff General Charles Brown Jr. during the Security Forum this week. General Brown also said that the U.S. has a responsibility to help train Ukrainian pilots on how to fly the different aircraft should they provide it to their forces. The U.S. Air Force is looking to retire its A-10 Warthogs – and many have suggested that they be sent to Ukraine to help in air assaults in the war with Russia....
    It's not quite worthy of a Tom Cruise movie, but fascinating nonetheless. A new video reveals the impressive facilities at United Airlines' recently opened flight training school at Phoenix Goodyear Airport in Goodyear, Arizona. It's called the United Aviate Academy and boasts a fleet of 25 Cirrus SR-20 series single-engine training planes, dormitories for trainee pilots, two swimming pools, and a volleyball court.

    A 'drunk' pilot has been arrested after flying his light aircraft from Florida to Missouri before landing on the interstate.  John T. Seesing, 35, of Prairie Village, Kansas, landed a small aircraft on I-70 near Grain Valley around 2.45am on Friday.  Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) said it believes Seesing was headed toward the Wheeler Downtown Airport in Kansas City when he ran out of fuel and had to make an emergency landing on the highway.  Seesing was the only passenger on board the aircraft and he sustained minor injuries.  The Kansan radioed in before landing and had a small collision with a guardrail, but no cars were hit.  A 'drunk' pilot landed a small aircraft on an Missouri interstate after he ran out of fuel.

    Imagine avoiding that soul-crushing, hourlong slog — say from Santa Monica to downtown L.A. on a Tuesday morning. Instead, you hail a high-tech cab that will hop over the gridlock and get you there in nine minutes. This is Adam Goldstein’s pitch to Angelenos run ragged by traffic: air taxis. “These vehicles just unlock something that can completely change the way we live, the way we work,” said Goldstein, the 43-year-old chief executive of Archer Aviation in Palo Alto. The promise of flying cars — for generations a Hollywood staple of a space-age future, from “The Jetsons” to “Blade Runner” — is finally becoming a reality, so much so that a Swedish company is already selling a single passenger vehicle called Jetson 1. Los Angeles transportation officials are preparing for this new era and expect drone-like electric air taxis to be operational by the time the 2028 Summer Olympics roll around, if not far sooner. Companies are eyeing L.A.'s vast inventory of parking lots and high-rise roofs for so-called vertiports as a gateway for the technology to take off...
    A YouTube daredevil who lost his pilot's license after crashing a plane on purpose to boost his viewing figures has described the stunt as 'an adventure gone south'. Trevor Jacob, a former Olympic snowboarder, asked his followers in his latest video to purchase merchandise from his online shop to help him pay his legal fees. The video titled 'The FAA took my pilots license' was posted to Jacob's YouTube channel on Sunday, four months after the original video 'I crashed my plane' landed him in hot water with the Federal Aviation Administration. 'I didn't think that just posting a video of an adventure gone south would ruffle so many feathers,' Jacob told his subscribers. His latest video showed him as a passenger in a friend's plane on his way to return his license, he said. 'We live in a pretty rural area so we're just heading into town to hit the postal office,' he told the camera. 'I've got to send in my pilot's license. Unfortunately it got revoked though. Just putting it in the box here, we'll be landing...
    "Somebody might be getting fired over this one," said White House correspondent Christian Datoc. Here's more about the Capitol evacuation: US Capitol evacuated over 'aircraft'; no threat found www.youtube.com
    The US Capitol Complex has been evacuated after police warned of an aircraft that posed a potential threat to lawmakers. Capitol Police issued the evacuation order on Wednesday evening in an alert saying that law enforcement was 'tracking an aircraft that poses a probable threat to the Capitol Complex.'  'Evacuate Now: Aircraft Intrusion' read the alert ordering the evacuation of the the US Capitol, Capitol Visitor Center, Library of Congress, House and Senate office buildings, and the US Botanical Garden.  A USCP spokesperson told DailyMail.com in a statement: 'The Capitol was evacuated out of an abundance of caution this evening. There is no threat at the Capitol. More details to come.'  Developing story, more to follow. 
    The F-18 pilot who filmed a famous 2015 UFO encounter gave secret evidence to Congress and explained that he initially thought the flying object was part of a training and locked onto it like an adversary. New, heavily redacted documents released to government document repository The Black Vault reveal that the pilot who encountered an 'unexplained aerial phenomena' in 2015, known as the "Gimbal' sighting, briefed Senate staffers in 2019 on the event.  The Navy prefers to call the objects seen in the videos 'unexplained aerial phenomena' (UAP), as opposed to the more commonly-used 'unidentified flying object' (UFO).  The naval pilot who encountered the 'Gimbal' told Senators that he initially believed the aircraft was part of a training and locked onto it like an adversary.  'Towards the end of one of the night flights (redacted) was conducting during the at-sea period, he and his pilot detected an air contact via (redacted) coming from the east and heading towards the ship.

    A passenger plane takes off from Frankfurt Airport. The aviation industry is particularly hard hit by the effects of the global Corona pandemic.Picture alliance | Getty Images WASHINGTON – Elon Musk's SpaceX believes an aviation-specific antenna may be revolutionary for connecting Starlink, its global high-speed internet service, with airplanes. "Connectivity on airplanes is something that we believe is ripe for an overhaul," SpaceX vice president Jonathan Hofeller said Monday at the Satellite 2022 conference here. In-flight connectivity is a market that SpaceX has talked about disrupting since the company began offering Starlink service. Hofeller said that air travel passengers' expectations for internet service "has changed faster than the technology has changed," creating an opportunity for Starlink. "Our approach to connectivity in the sky is much like it is at home: You walk into your house and the internet just works. It's simple. It's high speed," Hofeller said. Airlines work with satellite broadband providers for inflight Wi-Fi, with Viasat and Intelsat – the latter of which purchased Gogo's commercial aviation business – two such companies that add connectivity on flights by airlines including Delta, JetBlue, American Airlines and United. But, while existing...

    An aerospace expert believes he has finally discovered the resting place of ill-fated flight MH370 using sophisticated radio wave technology, as he claims the pilot's 'strange' course suggests he was 'being followed'. The Malaysian Airlines flight carrying 239 people, including six Australians, vanished without a trace on March 8, 2014, shortly after leaving Kuala Lumpur for Beijing.   Despite an extensive four-year $200million international search effort spanning more than 120,000sqm, the Boeing 777's wreckage is yet to be found, with devastated families claiming the crash was not an accident.  But British aerospace engineer Richard Godfrey believes MH370 hit the ocean 1,933 km due west of Perth, and lies 4,000m under the water, along a line known as the 'seventh arc'. Using Weak Signal Propagation Reporter analysis, Mr Godfrey tracked disturbances the plane made in radio frequencies across the globe to uncover its final path - creating perhaps the most precise estimate of where the wreckage lies to date. This graphic shows Mr Godfrey's predicted location for MH370's wreckage at the bottom of the Indian Ocean He found unusual patterns in the aircraft's journey, including...
    (CNN)A US Navy aircraft had an "extremely close" encounter with multiple Russian military jets over international waters in the Mediterranean this weekend, according to multiple US officials directly familiar with the US military reports of the incident. The sources would not detail precisely how close the Russian aircraft came to the US Navy P-8 maritime patrol aircraft, but the maneuvers by the Russians were described as "unsafe and unprofessional."The initial reporting indicates there was a subsequent additional encounter after that between US and Russian jets.Several of the officials indicated there is video of the incident. But the Biden administration has yet to publicly acknowledge any of the details amid rising tensions with the Russia as it masses troops on the border with Ukraine.It is not unusual for Russian aircraft to approach US military aircraft but the majority of the interactions are considered safe and professional by the US.Read MoreCNN also has reported that US military aircraft escorted a Russian cargo plane and fighters across an air exclusion zone in eastern Syria on Tuesday when the Russians failed to give appropriate...
    A retired military official is warning on Wednesday that China could claim salvage rights to an F-35 stealth fighter jet that crashed into the South China Sea earlier this week. Carl Schuster, former director of operations at the US Pacific Command's Joint Intelligence Center in Hawaii, told CNN that China's likely game plan will be to capitalize on its territorial claims in the South China Sea and claim it's salvaging the craft for environmental purposes. 'Salvaging the plane with commercial and coast guard assets will enable Beijing to claim it is recovering a potential environmental hazard or foreign military equipment from its territorial waters,' the former Navy captain said.  The U.S. faces a race to beat Beijing  in recovering the military plane after it plunged into the South China Sea on Monday following what the Navy termed a 'landing mishap' aboard the USS Carl Vinson. The pilot was forced to eject and seven military personnel in total were injured.  But as the U.S. military works to recover the craft, Schuster warned that China 'will try to locate and survey it thoroughly using...
    Getty A cellular tower stands as a United Airlines Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplane lands at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) in the Lennox neighborhood of Los Angeles, California on January 19, 2022. New high-speed cellphone services have raised concerns of interference with aircraft operations, particularly as aircraft are landing at airports. The Federal Aviation Administration has assured Americans that most commercial aircraft are safe, and AT&T and Verizon have agreed to hold off on installing their new cellphone antennas near airports for six months. But the problem has not been entirely resolved. Concerns began when the U.S. government auctioned part of the C-band spectrum to wireless carriers in 2021 for US$81 billion. The carriers are using C-band spectrum to provide 5G service at full speed, 10 times the speed of 4G networks. The C-band spectrum is close to the frequencies used by key electronics that aircraft rely on to land safely. Here’s why that can be a problem. Keeping Order on the Spectrum Wireless signals are carried by radio waves. The radio spectrum ranges from 3 hertz to...
    This is the amazing moment the world's largest cargo plane cut a clear path through fog while landing.  Footage from January 9 at Rzeszow Airport in Poland shows the Soviet-designed Antonov Airlines An-225 Mriya cargo plane. It emerges above and then sweeps through the fog to come into landing as hundreds of aviation enthusiasts watch on, delighted.  In 2020 the plane was used to carry medical supplies to Poland during the Covid-19 pandemic in Europe.     The An-124-Ruslan, a smaller version of the aircraft, made an appearance in Auckland in 2020 as it was delivering new engines for Air New Zealand's Dreamliner fleet.  In 2021, Ukrainian strongmen athletes attempted a world record for pulling the plane at an airfield in the settlement of Hostomel outside Kyviv, Ukraine. The eight strongmen beat the previous record, pulling the plane by 4 metres 30cm in 1 minute and 13 seconds.   RAF Brize Norton said of the aircraft in 2016: 'The heaviest aircraft ever built has visited RAF Brize Norton this week. 'The Antonov AN-225 Mriya, which has 32 wheels and wingspan of over...
    Hero pilots flew an 'out of control' plane over Siberia for five hours when the aircraft plunged into a sudden dive after taking off with 200 passengers onboard.  The S7 plane ran into trouble - the autopilot system disconnected, there was an onboard electronics failure and the fuselage was covered in ice - five minutes after taking off from Magdan airport in eastern Russia.  The captain made a Mayday call but the pilots were unable to offload fuel and land in the departure airport, despite circling overhead several times.  Instead, they were forced to fly on over mountain ranges, towards the next nearest airport Yakutsk before finally landing in Irkutsk five and half hours later.   The plane was impounded on arrival and police are probing whether faulty or deliberately botched de-icer spray was used on the fuselage ahead of take off.  Passengers, among them 25 children, reportedly applauded the pilots after they safely landed the plane in Irkutsk. They were offered drinks, food and onward flights.  Hero pilots flew this 'out of control' plane over Siberia for five hours after...

    President Joe Biden's first flight on the new $217 million presidential helicopter has been delayed because the Pentagon deemed the aircraft unreliable in an emergency and not 'operationally suitable.' The VH-92 helicopter program is a $5 billion project to build 23 aircraft replacing the aging fleet used by the president and other senior officials.  Lockheed Martin won the contract in 2014 after other aircraft makers dropped out. The new presidential helicopter - with the call sign Marine One when carrying the president - was expected to be ready in July. But on Tuesday, Bloomberg News reported that a testing report in September found it was 'failing to meet the reliability, availability or maintainability threshold requirements' set for it.  The Pentagon testing office found that its communications system did not 'adequately support timely, continuous and secure communications,' and tended to delay critical communications at the start of emergency missions. A US Marine Corps VH-92 helicopter takes off from the White House lawn in June 2019. It was supposed to enter service a year later but now a new report reveals it is...
    Zephyr, a solar-powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) built by Airbus, was used to deliver next generation wireless internet, as part of a test flight over Arizona. Airbus was testing the 'High Altitude Platform Station' (HAPS), onboard the British-built UAV, as part of an 18-day flight in the stratosphere, 76,100ft above the surface. The test was in partnership with Japanese mobile operator, NTT DOCOMO, and could one day lead to super-fast broadband in remote areas, without the need to send a fleet of satellites into low Earth orbit, according to Airbus.  It carried an onboard radio transmitter that let it provide a datalink to simulate future systems that would send internet signals between the UAV and a computer. The successful test could pave the way for a fleet of Zephyr aircraft delivering 5G and 6G mobile internet to the most remote parts of the planet, or providing a short-term signal boost during a major event in a densely populated area, Airbus says.  Zephyr, a solar-powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) built by Airbus, was used to deliver next generation wireless internet, as...

    SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea says it has test-fired an anti-aircraft missile in the fourth round of weapons launch this month The Korean Central News Agency said Friday the test-launch performed on Thursday is “of very practical significance in studying and developing various prospective anti-aircraft missile system.” North Korea has recently mixed its weapons tests with conditional talks with Seoul in what some experts say is an attempt to extract outside concessions. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Thursday expressed his willingness to restore communication channels with rival South Korea while slamming the United States for its hostility against the North.

    Florida Rep. Brian Mast, a veteran who was injured in combat, told "The Faulkner Focus" Friday that Biden’s chaotic withdrawal is resulting in an "Afghanistan hostage crisis" amid the Taliban takeover.   REPORTS OF TALIBAN TARGETING BLACKLISTED AFGHANS, JOURNALISTS SPREAD FEAR REP. BRIAN MAST: It's so dangerous in this respect. It's very clear the Biden’s administration's objective is always optics. They were probably trying to do this because they wanted the optics of being out before 9/11. Now they're trying to keep those optics of this is, quote, not a combat mission, and it's the optics that are going to put people in even further danger instead of going out there and making the Taliban our hostages.  Right now, America is on what about day seven, day eight of the Afghanistan hostage crisis for us, and until we flip that scenario back to where it was prior to this, we can't safely get our people out… We gave up the most secure airbase, Bagram, probably in the world for a totally non-secure airbase.  We heard President Biden say we gave...
    A German pensioner has been fined more than £200,000 for keeping a WWII tank and an anti-aircraft cannon stashed in a colossal arsenal at his house. The 84-year-old, named only as Klaus-Dieter F. due to local privacy laws, kept the Panzer and the 88mm flak gun in a bunker under his home in Heikendorf, close to the northern city of Kiel.  Klaus-Dieter admitted breaching the War Weapons Control Act and was handed a 14-month suspended prison sentence and ordered to pay 250,000 euros (£213,000). As well as the tank and cannon, he was also in possession of a torpedo, mortar, 70 assault rifles and more than 2,000 rounds of ammunition. A team of 20 Bundeswehr soldiers were dispatched to remove the 44-ton Panzer and the cannon in an operation involving two transport vehicles and taking nine hours last month Klaus-Dieter F, 84, admitted to breaching the War Weapons Control Act at the court in Kiel
    In this article AZULLilium says its five-seater jets can travel up to 186 in one hour.LiliumLilium, a German start-up making electric jets that can take off and land vertically, has announced plans to sell 220 of its vehicles for up to $1 billion to Brazilian airliner Azul. The two firms said on Monday that they plan to build an eVTOL (electric vehicle takeoff and landing) aircraft network across Brazil between now and 2025. "The aircraft we're planning to launch will do 175 miles an hour," Alex Asseily, Lilium's chief strategy officer, told CNBC on Monday. "The range will be 155 miles." The aviation industry is under intensifying pressure to look at new ways of powering their carriers as policymakers publicly acknowledge the necessity of transitioning to a low-carbon society. Lilium's latest aircraft is a five-seater model but the one that goes into serial production and gets sold to Azul will be a seven-seater model, Asseily said, adding that the production line is 50% complete.

    Russia's defense ministry has announced it sunk an aircraft carrier just 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii in a huge war games exercise that has alarmed the US.  At least 20 Russian warships, submarines, and support vessels, flanked by 20 fighter jets, are taking part in the exercises - the biggest since the Cold War.  Russia says that they are 300 miles off the coast of Hawaii, yet unconfirmed satellite images from June 19 appear to show them much closer - within 35 miles of the U.S. state. Russia says their forces are at a distance of about 2,500 miles southeast of the Kuril Islands.  Russia's defense ministry on Monday broadcast a video showing the latest scenes from the Pacific, where they are carrying out the largest exercises since the end of the Cold War Moscow's war games have alarmed the Pentagon, and on Monday Russia showed what they had been doing in the region (above), explaining that it was a practise session to sink an aircraft carrier The Russian video showed their naval personnel carrying...
    (CNN)United States Navy commanders face a potential shortfall in their Asia sea power in the coming weeks as tensions simmer with China in the region's waters.According to two unnamed US officials, the Japan-based aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan is expected to head to the Middle East in the next few days to support US troops' withdrawal from Afghanistan.But analysts say the move could leave a gap in US carrier coverage in East Asia at a time when Beijing is turning up the heat over the South China Sea and Taiwan.China may also point to the US deployment as evidence for its claims that Washington cannot live up to its military commitments in Asia, said Collin Koh, a research fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies in Singapore."It'll be delightful fodder for Beijing's propaganda machine to be certain," said Koh, who added the US could be without a carrier in Asia for months.Read More"Amongst other regional governments, there'll be shared concerns about the 'hole' in the US military posture in the region during this carrier absence," he said.An F/A-18E...
    A GLOWING UFO was spotted flying past the International Space Station during a live stream. Video shows the triangular-shaped vessel with four beaming lights travelling through space - and the clip has sent sky-watcher's tongues wagging. 3The triangular-shaped object was spotted during a live stream of the ISS HD Earth Viewing ExperimentCredit: UFO Sightings Daily/YouTube 3The footage was zoomed in on by an extraterrestrial expert who is convinced it is "100% alien"Credit: UFO Sightings Daily/YouTube The sighting was analysed by YouTube account UFO Sightings Daily, but the footage of the unexplained flying object was originally broadcast as part of the ISS HD Earth Viewing Experiment. UFO enthusiast Scott Waring, who analyses the clip, adamantly told viewers he believed it was "100% alien". "This is a single glowing object," he explained. "This object has four powerful glowing areas, each corner of it is glowing and the centre of the front of it is also glowing which I assume is either part of a cockpit or part of the propulsion.

    American company Ariane has been working on supersonic aircraft projects for many years. His idea: can travel around the world in less than three hours. The company recently introduced a device that can turn dreams into reality. Twice as fast as Concord: This is the speed that American aircraft manufacturer Ariane Corporation wants to achieve. The company, which first worked on the development of supersonic commercial aircraft with the AS2 aircraft model, now deals with long-haul aircraft. With a crazy goal in mind: to build a device capable of crossing the Atlantic Ocean in an hour, connecting New York with London. In the end, the company wants to travel around the world within 3 hours. (Image: Arian / DR) Twice as fast as the Concord Ariane’s Promise: Building an aircraft aimed at commercial aircraft with a capacity of 50 passengers, all at speeds ranging from Mach 3 to Mach 5. I.e. about 3,700 km / h at a speed of about 6 100 km / h. Almost seven times faster than a traditional long-haul plane. The speed of the Concord,...
    President Joe Biden has caused confusion after predicting some commercial airplanes could fly at speeds of up to 21,000 miles per hour in the next 10 years, faster than the hypersonic weapons under development by the military. “We’re going to talk about commercial aircraft flying at subsonic speeds, supersonic speeds, be able to figuratively, if you may, if we decide to do it, be able to traverse the world in an hour, travel at 21,000 miles an hour," Biden said. The White House has yet to clarify Biden's comments, made during a Wednesday address aimed at promoting his $2.25 trillion infrastructure and jobs spending package. DOES BIDEN REALLY KNOW CONGRESS AS WELL AS HE SAYS? TAX PLAN SUGGESTS MAYBE NOT The speed of 21,000 miles an hour roughly equates to Mach 28, or 28 times the speed of sound. In comparison, the new AGM-183 Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon, which failed to detach from a B-52H Stratofortress bomber during a U.S. Air Force test launch this week in California, is designed to reach up to Mach 5.

    The UAV that arrived in Ukraine was based in Italy. Photo: mil.in.ua On April 2, an American spy drone RQ-4 Global Hawk flew near the border line at Donbass on April 2. The U.S. Navy P-8A Poseidon Navy patrol aircraft also appeared in the air across our country. about this Reports “Ukrainian military portal”. The RQ-4 Global Hawk drone with Wall Nos. 11-2047 and Colcin FORTE10 took off from Sigonella Airport in Sicily and flew over Greece, Bulgaria and Romania, according to surveillance-rich “Plane Radar”. He then entered the airspace of Ukraine. There he formed several circles over the Black Sea, after which he proceeded to the Donbass. In this region, at an altitude of more than six hours, he carried out reconnaissance surveillance with the contact line, sometimes approaching the Russian border of the Belgorod, Voronezh and Rostov regions at a distance of 40-60 km. Details of the route of the P-8A Poseidon patrol aircraft are not yet known. The RQ-4 Global Hawk is a strategic reconnaissance unmanned aerial vehicle. It made its maiden...
    From negotiations on the precipice to an unexpected agreement on the SCAF … Dassault Aviation and Airbus have indeed succeeded in reaching an agreement in principle on the combat aircraft (Next Generation Fighter, NGF), the famous pillar 1 of the Future Combat Air System (SCAF) program, according to several corroborating sources. The sessions of “psychotherapy” organized by the Senate, which interviewed Dassault Aviation and Airbus officials separately on the difficulties encountered in the negotiations on the SCAF program, worked beyond the expectations of supporters of Franco-German cooperation. After this unprecedented (virile but correct) unpacking on current negotiations, the two manufacturers, who publicly said the things they had to say to each other, finally got back to work in a more peaceful way to find this agreement in principle, which is not yet a signed agreement. The Tribune is also not in a position at this stage to reveal the outlines of the agreement. The two manufacturers have therefore made joint proposals. This agreement is currently being examined by the three member states of the SCAF program (Germany, Spain and...
    New York : Only half an hour, or less, the staff of the Utah Jazz when they were driving from Salt Lake City to Memphis to play the Grizzlies, the city’s basketball team. The plane went through a large flock of birds that made the pilot of the aircraft react. One of the engines was affected by the collision with the birds and was cut off. This failure forced the flight captain to make an emergency landing with the help of the other running engine. The crew members got off relatively normally and waited patiently at the airport. Then they did board a new plane that took them without further ado to their destination. At 1:15 p.m. local time, the plane took off, which ended up damaged by the incident. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have reported that birds have been the cause of nearly 670 aircraft incidents in the last thirty years, only in New York. These incidents are common due to the low altitude in the flights. Pigeons, owls or seagulls are the species that have been...
    A SUPERSONIC plane that could fly you from London to New York in an hour is in the works. That flight time is much faster than a standard flight and almost two hours quicker than Concorde. 3 US aircraft company Aerio recently announced the plans for its new AS3 plane. It will aim to travel at speeds between 2302 mph to 3836 miles per hour. Concorde's top speed was around 1,350mph when travelling across the Atlantic Ocean. Aerion is partnering with Nasa to create supersonic aircraft which could carry passengers. 3Aerion has only released this shadowy render of the AS3 plane so farCredit: Aerion There's plan for the AS3 to carry 50 passengers over 7,000 miles. Aerion thinks the plane could be ready for the flight by the end of the decade. 3This is what the smaller AS2 plane should look likeCredit: Aerion The manufacturer is also designing a smaller version of the plane called the AS2. Production of this could begin in 2023. Aerion CEO Tom Vice said: "The AS3 forms the next step in our long-term technology roadmap...
    London (CNN Business)The coronavirus pandemic has forced even the biggest airlines to ground planes, slash jobs and bolster their finances to survive the worst crisis in aviation history. A full recovery is still years away, but a handful of gutsy CEOs think now is the perfect time to launch new carriers."We wouldn't [be launching] without the pandemic," said Tonje Wikstrøm Frislid, CEO of the Norwegian low-cost startup Flyr.Flyr, which is planning its first flight in the coming months, is not alone. Flypop, a UK startup that wants to offer low-cost long haul flights, is preparing for takeoff this year, along with Breeze Airways, the latest offering from serial airline entrepreneur David Neeleman, who founded carriers including JetBlue (JBLU), Azul (AZUL) and WestJet. US airline stocks rise on hopes for a travel reboundThe upstarts are betting that the failures and cutbacks suffered by other airlines during the pandemic have opened new areas of opportunity. They're also hoping to score huge discounts on aircraft from desperate suppliers, and to have their pick of pilots, air crew and support staff."A pandemic is...
