While being (relatively) simple, this is an amazing home built cockpit. In the end of the video it is even mounted on a moving platform. 8)

An older tour of SpaceX (2011). Very interesting. Also Elon Musk seems very knowledgeable about a lot of aspects of his company and what it does. Kind of like Tony Stark, but without the obnoxiously large ego. :wink:

Elons Tour of SpaceX (22 min, though well worth it)


Bonus video: The future of Design (4 min)

I would argue though that doing hand gestures with arms reaching that far out in empty air is not very ergonomic and may/will cause muscle problems over time.

Maybe not that aviation related, but very much related to some efforts people are working on here on the forum. It is a Google Tech Talk on APIs by a Joshua Bloch. (It is long, 60 min, but probably worth the time if you are working on a framework or an API or anything that will be used or reused by other):



I learned two things: (1) "When in doubt, don't" about doing an all out in once implementation and (2) avoid Java like a plague; it looks really verbose.

After the Spitfire 75th anniversary memorial flight a few of us had a back in 2011, I get a bit sentimental seeing this. These guys are so much better at formation flying though, and landing... :wink:

Edit: By the way: Take note of the legwork on take off. :shock:

Yeah, I noticed that right away. :shock: I'm guessing there's more dynamics to "P" effect and having to compensate for the ground turbulence of taking off in the troubled wake of a Lancaster with a pair of lively Merlins under your control while getting up to take-off speed. You also noticed the gradual increase in power added?

St. Elmos Fire during air-to-air refueling. Much less dangerous than it looks. Had it been Hollywood though... :wink:

For all of you who take those red obstruction lights on top of high buildings, towers and masts for granted: :wink: 8)

Ha, way cool. I'd freak out a little to see that. But this would be the aviation equivalent of like refueling the car at the station, or working on the innards of a computer... just touch the car or metal casing for 3 seconds.. right?

Decompression and rapid decompression and the following hypoxia is really scary stuff:

This one fail to understand clear commands to put the mask on. :?




And a classic one:
