I've always loved the Jaguar, first time I see one with the missiles over the wing.

I saw one in person at the Pima Air & Space Museum near Tucson back in January :

...dafuq? Six propellers in pusher configuration plus four jet turbines? :blink: TIL there was such a thing...
Yarp, the B-36J Peacemaker, and the KB-50J with it's 4 radial engines and 2 jet engine is also WTF worthy...

Edit: The B-36J really is the inspiration for the Ace Combat Arsenal Bird, they had planned at somepoint to carry a parasite fighter in the bomb bays!

Great pictures, @RdKetchup!

And now for something completely different: Crazy Aussies.


Thanks to @D-Fence for the link.

I will never have to go to an air show, because after that, everything else will be lame. :D

Just saw a video pop up in my YouTube recommendations, and it features the very first simulator on which I did a visual update, 7 years ago.

[video]

What is weird is that some of the outside footage of the simulator show the old CRT projectors, while the footage inside shows the updated rendering.
