    The Aviation Thread [Contains Lots of Awesome Pictures]

    The Awesome thread was starting to turn into an aircraft thread, so I think it'd be nice if we move all aircraft conversations to a new thread.

    So, aviation nuts, post away!

    *Could mods move the aircraft posts from the awesome thread over????

    Anyway, something to kickstart conversations

    Understeer is when you hit the tree with the front, oversteer is when you hit it with the back.

                  Oh man, imagine how much better that would have been if I didn't suck so bad at that lol cat shit! I don't know the correct font or how to properly misspell the words and i can't help but feel that my text placement is poor at best for achieving the highest levels of funny...

                        ^I've had the pleasure of flying a Cessna before (With a fully qualified pilot of course, not on my own). Very easy to handle.

                                So who here actually holds a pilot's licence? I was considering getting mine, but its far too expensive, and I'd rather get my racing licence first.

                                  That is one of my favorite WW2 aircraft.

                                  They have one at the Smithsonian Dullex Annex which I went to 3 weeks ago.

                                    Every so often on various military forums I'll hear a story about how Iran turned over several F-14's over to the Soviets to look at. Usually they will provide this picture as "proof".




                                    Neat huh?

                                    Too bad it is a fake.

                                      Obviously most excellent and belongs in the thread.



                                      And this one is a dear favourite. The original commercial jet.
