What happens when you fly in a $28m Jet.


Take a ride on the wild side. Did you see the reporter pass out for a couple seconds. In air shows the pilots can pull about 5-8G’s w/o wearing a pressure suite because there used to it. A normal person isn’t. If there going supersonic 8-14gs they wear the suits.

New Yacht

Some people just have way too much money…..
A famous French shipbuilder ship company and one of Monaco joined hands together to build this yacht with enormous dimensions for their friend, Jo Ann.  the WHY 58×38. (58meter long and 38 meter wide) After the first pictures of this project.
The yacht, an area of 3400 m2 with seating for 12 passengers and 20 crew.
This is a "green" yacht.
Wally et Herm?s use green energy to 20 to 30% fuel savings and 40 to 50% electricity consumption on board. Therefore there are 900 m2 equipped with solar panels, producing a daily output of 500 kW.
Three decks, a 25 meter pool, a spa helicopterpad a 100m2 with hammam, sauna, gym and massage room, a promenade of 130 meter, a music room, a dining room, a cinema, sun decks, suites, terraces, a lounge, a bibi . The luxury is at the rendez-vous.
The decks are connected by stairs but there is also an elevator.
The suite of the owner (ie ikke !!!!!):  Who needs a motorhome?????
With an area of 200m2 and completely covers the third deck. (This is the bedroom) The sea view is great and there is a private terrace of 25 meter long.
A sea of light.
 The yacht has the shape of a horseshoe and has a roof so everything is bathed in a sea of light.
The spacious lounge.
On the lower deck are the common premises, such as lounge, piano bar and dining area …..

Carrier Landing


Putting you in the co-pilot's seat up close and personal!

Here's some video footage of an A-6 approaching an aircraft carrier and landing. It was taken from the cockpit by the co-pilot. The conditions are ideal….. Calm sea, daylight and a stable aircraft. This is for all of us who have not had the privilege — With the volume up, you can even hear the power changes necessary to maintain precision glide slope and prepare for bolter (a.k.a.. Abort the landing) in the event the arrest wire is missed. Feels like you are in the aircraft. Imagine what this would be like at night in IMC (instrument meteorological conditions – a..k.a. Pea soup)!

This is a very neat video. If you look very carefully, shortly before the plane touches down, you can see the 'meatball' to the left; the orange light between the row of green lights that tells the pilot he's on heading and on glide slope.
