Topic: Badass Planes

When I was a kid I wanted to be a Fighter Pilot among other stuff so I've always LOVED planes of all kinds. There are/were some really amazing ones around.

My ALL TIMES favorite is definitely the Junkers Stuka JU-87. Like the V wings a whole lot.

And the siren when it was bombing was just creepy as H3LL, I wouldn't want to be on the ground hearing that, I'm sure I wouldn't be able to move...

It was designed to use the wind passing through the wheels thingy. Brilliant German engineering once more. These guys have always ruled. big_smile

The Red Baron's plane was just mad. And very cool color. smile

The Fokker 3-Plane.

Re: Badass Planes

One of the most beautiful planes ever built. The french Concorde. Awesome for a passenger one and not a fighter. Always digged it. smile

Re: Badass Planes

Can't answer your poll. I have flown many times and I can't say I like flying, but I'm not scared of it either. Commercial airlines can be a fickle mistress.

Re: Badass Planes

Well put it another way. Do you like planes???

Re: Badass Planes

Bigger fan of dirigibles.

Re: Badass Planes

Ohhh a Zeppelin guy, cool, they rock too. smile

Re: Badass Planes

I'm with Theli, I'm ambivalent about flying.
But I do like planes.


Try and catch me, bee-otches! (SR-71 Blackbird) 
(Fun fact- it was supposed to be the \"RS\" instead of \"SR.\"  Go read the link, it's amusing.]

(To be honest, I don't know for sure, but it would make no sense by the silhouette we saw this doing circles around our area after 9/11 (we were a bit south of New York then) for a few hours. It's just... wow, even 4000(?) feet up. The only other thing I can think of would be a B-2, but I don't think we would want to bomb NYC.)

Re: Badass Planes

I feel like a farmer, with the airstrips as my fields. Those that have once tasted this kind of fare will not forget it ever. Not so, my friends? It is not a question of living dangerously. That formula is too arrogant, too presumptuous. I don't care much for bull-fighters. It's not the danger I love. I know what I love. It is life itself.

Nice plane field. big_smile

If this is real, that is really freaking cool. Then just use the evacuation slide into the water, swim around and take off again.
