This Day in Aviation History
Originally shared by +Gazing Skyward TV August 7th, 1963First flight of the Lockheed YF-12. The Lockheed YF-12 was an American prototype interceptor aircraft evaluated by the United States Air Force. The YF-12 was a twin-seat version of the secret single-seat Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance aircraft, which led to the U.S. Air Force's Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird twin-seat reconnaissance variant. The YF-12 set and held speed and altitude world records of over 2,000 mph and over 80,000 ft (later surpassed by the SR-71), and is the world's largest manned interceptor to date…..

I saw a B-52H flying overhead last Thursday afternoon. He was flying at about 4,000 feet, going West from the Thumb tip area of Michigan, towards the center of the state
Originally shared by +Fred Robel It was a really neat sight, and caused me to reflect on how long it has been since I have seen one flying with my own eyes. About 25 years. Not since Wurtsmith AFB closed up here in N. Michigan. I looked it up, and there are only two AFB's left that have them stationed: Barksdale, and Minot. Nowhere near here. Perhaps he was going to an airshow? Or maybe some kind of wargame exercise, as there is a bombing range in the middle of Michigan, near Grayling Army base. Not sure, as the low altitude I observed him at, wouldn't be suitable for a long flight. At any rate, it was a treat to see the old BUFF again. (photo via the US Air force site, taken by Airman 1st Class Rebecca Imwalle ) EDIT: I just found a reference to a B-52 doing a flyby in Toledo on Thursday, where someone took a nice photo of it flying over the line of Thunderbird F-16's. There is an airshow this weekend down there. Maybe this was the same B-52 I saw (though that is waaay South of where I saw it) #aviation #aircraft #airplane […]

Sukhoi Su-34 also known as "Hell Duck"
Originally shared by +E-pic.se NATO reporting name FullbackSu-34 Theme week Sunday II. http://www.e-pic.se/Aircraft/Aircraft-sorted-by-type/Sukhoi/SU-34-Fullback/ The Sukhoi Su-34 (Russian: Сухой Су-34) (NATO reporting name: Fullback) is a Russian twin-engined, twin-seat strike fighter. It is intended to replace the Sukhoi Su-24. Based on Sukhoi Su-27 'Flanker', the two-seat Su-34 is designed primarily for tactical deployment against ground and naval targets (Tactical bombing/attack/interdiction roles, including against small and mobile targets) on solo and group missions in daytime and at night, under favourable and adverse weather conditions and in a hostile environment with counter-fire and EW counter-measures deployed, as well as for aerial reconnaissance. #Sukhoi #Fullback #Aircraft #Attack #Bomber #Aviation #Jet #E_PIC_SE
