10 Best Fly By's
Well here are short clips on the top 10 low pass flybys ever filmed … and of course for nostalgia, lets see that Top Gun low pass again.
Pay particular attention to the last shown low pass. It is number one.
Watch the halo of water around the plane. It happened during a Blue Angels event over San Francisco several years ago. It was the pilot’s last show with the team and he had nothing to lose. Many of the boats in the bay lost windows to the sonic blast. It’s a kick to watch.
Number 3 was pretty impressive too.

Don't Screw Around With Israeli Ingenuity
(It is 99.997% accurate with a similar total target destruction ratio!)
What you are about to watch is an actual event. Israeli forces filmed this in actual time. What you are about to see is a fully armored Syrian tank being hit by an Israeli laser-guided, steel-penetrating, phosphorous-filled “hand held” rocket. The rocket is small, very portable and is a tightly controlled weapon, each one is accounted for when they are checked out and back in. There must be no fewer than 2 soldiers present to verify the use; one must be a senior officer with a minimum of 10 years military service. (Sorry, the name and program is kept secret.)
This tank was headed for one of Israel’s settlements. There were four more tanks one mile to the rear of this tank. (They turned around before getting to this area.)
You can hear the ammunition going off after the initial strike. No tank member survived this event. This event did not make the news. It is an everyday event for Israeli forces and they do not “embed” news sources with armed forces as the Americans do. This is for Israeli survival, not for “news” entertainment!

Also an interesting factual story that most of us did not know. History is rarely ‘over’.
Now sit back and strap on your parachute harness … it is the summer of 1940 over the skies of England. Listen to the perfect ‘purr’ of the Rolls Royce Merlin.
Double click the video to watch this full screen. It’s very well done. [BTW, the Brit is the guy with the mustache.]
Interesting twist at the end
Trophy - It will change the battlefield in a major way.
Numerous armies have indicated a very serious interest in the Trophy system, but so far, the IDF is not prepared to share the technology with anyone.

The Last Bomb (1945)
Bombing under the clouds…at 12,000 feet. Over Tokyo.
If not able to view now, save and view later. This is spectacular live footage of the 3,000 round trip mile air assault upon the Japanese mainland, with 3 bomber wings and a host of P-51′s.
This is the real way to end a war. No matter what war footage you ever saw before, this is the real deal and will keep your undivided attention. The P-51 & B29 footage is remarkable. The strafing runs by the P-51 drivers were incredible.

B-29/P-51 Actual WWII Footage – A great compilation of combat footage from WWII. It is 36 minutes long, The beginning is the planning and preparation for the bombing raids on Tokyo. At about 15-16 minutes they are running into flak as they prepare to hit the targets. Some great P-51 combat footage and then very good footage of the bombers in action. Recovery back at the take-off bases is excellent footage also.
It is obvious when you see our stockpiles on the islands that our industrial production sealed the fate of our enemies. We don’t send a lot of our officers to ICAF, but that course might be as valuable as AWC to the successful prosecution of a war effort. Good way to spend some quality time. A 36 minute gem for those who at this time of year would like to trace the dots from Pearl Harbor in 1941 back to Japan in 1945 — the Last Bomb. This is amazing footage. Notice the actual photos of the spent shell casings streaming out of the bottom of the P51s.
F-15 AIR TO AIR COMBAT
Comment from a fighter pilot:
“This is without reservation the best video I have ever viewed about air-to air combat. And, it’s all on YOUR dime. We love tax payers!”
The producer and photographer were able to show perspective of the entire arena in a way I’ve never seen.
This is as “real” as it could possibly be!
When the pilot got into a scissors or Luffberry you can almost feel the g’s!”

CHAMP - Lights Out

A recent weapons flight test in the Utah desert may change future warfare after the missile successfully defeated electronic targets with little to no collateral damage.
Boeing and the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Directed Energy Directorate, Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M., successfully tested the Counter-electronics High-powered Microwave Advanced Missile Project (CHAMP) during a flight over the Utah Test and Training Range.
CHAMP, which renders electronic targets useless, is a non-kinetic alternative to traditional explosive weapons that use the energy of motion to defeat a target.

Power is cut to a room of computers after being hit by a high-powered microwave pulse from a Counter-electronics High-powered Advanced Missile Project.
During the test, the CHAMP missile navigated a pre-programmed flight plan and emitted bursts of high-powered energy, effectively knocking out the target’s data and electronic subsystems. CHAMP allows for selective high-frequency radio wave strikes against numerous targets during a single mission.
“This technology marks a new era in modern-day warfare,” said Keith Coleman, CHAMP program manager for Boeing Phantom Works. “In the near future, this technology may be used to render an enemy’s electronic and data systems useless even before the first troops or aircraft arrive.”
