Sukhoi Su-35S Super Flanker theme nr 12
Originally shared by +E-pic.se http://www.e-pic.se/Aircraft/Aircraft-sorted-by-type/Sukhoi/Sukhoi-Su-35S-Flanker-E/ The Sukhoi Su-35 (Russian: Сухой Су-35; NATO reporting name: Flanker-E]) is a heavily upgraded derivative of the Su-27 'Flanker.While the aircraft maintains a strong superficial resemblance to the Su-27, the airframe, avionics, propulsion and weapons systems of the Su-35 have been thoroughly overhauled. Technological advancements have produced more compact and lighter hardware, such as the radar, shifting the centre of gravity to the aircraft's rear. These improvements removed the need for canards (Su-30) and saw the abandonment of the "tandem triplane" featured on several Su-27 derivatives. Also omitted was the Su-27's dorsal airbrake, which was replaced by differential deflection of the vertical stabilizers. Other aerodynamic refinements include a height reduction of the vertical stabilizers, a smaller aft-cockpit hump, and shorter rearward-projecting "sting".The thrust vectoring nozzles operate in one plane for pitch, but the canting allows the aircraft to produce both roll and yaw by vectoring each engine nozzle differently. A similar thrust vectoring system is also implemented on the PAK FA.The engine gives the Su-35 limited supercruise capability, or sustained supersonic speed without the use of afterburners. Radar-absorbent material is applied to the engine inlets and the front stages of the engine compressor to halve […]

Douglas A-26B Invader
Originally shared by +E-pic.se Dala-Järna 2015 http://www.e-pic.se/Aircraft/Aircraft-sorted-by-type/Douglas/Douglas-A-26B-Invader/ The Douglas A-26 Invader (designated B-26 between 1948 and 1965) is a twin-engined light bomber and attack aircraft that was built by Douglas Aircraft Company during World War II which also saw service during several major Cold War conflicts. It was found to be a fast aircraft capable of carrying twice its specified bomb load. A range of guns could be fitted to produce a formidable ground-attack aircraft.The A-26 was originally built in two different configurations. The A-26B had a gun nose, which originally could be equipped with a combination of armament including .50 caliber machine guns, 20mm or 37mm auto cannon, or even a 75mm pack howitzer. Normally the gun nose version housed six (or later eight) .50 caliber machine guns, officially termed the "all-purpose nose", later commonly known as the "six-gun nose" or "eight-gun nose". The A-26C 's "glass" nose, officially termed the "Bombardier nose", contained a Norden bombsight for medium altitude precision bombing. The A-26C nose section included two fixed M-2 guns, later replaced by underwing gun packs or internal guns in the wings.After about 1,570 production aircraft, three guns were installed in each wing, coinciding with the introduction of […]

This Day in Aviation History
Originally shared by +Gazing Skyward TV March 17th, 1947First flight of the North American B-45 Tornado. The North American B-45 Tornado was the United States Air Force's first operational jet bomber, and the first multi-jet engined bomber in the world to be refuelled in midair. The B-45 was an important part of the United States's nuclear deterrent for several years in the early 1950s, but was rapidly succeeded by the Boeing B-47 Stratojet. B-45s and RB-45s served in the United States Air Force's Strategic Air Command from 1950 until 1959. It was also the first jet bomber of the NATO Alliance, which was formed in 1949…..

Added four more images to my Viggen album, these four has received "artistic" editing. What do you think?

Warbird Wednesday!
Originally shared by +Fly By Photography January 27, 1937 marks the date of the first flight of the Lockheed P-38 Lightning. The P-38, designed for the US Army Air Corps in 1937, features two booms containing the engines with a central pod making up the cockpit. The P-38 was the only US fighter aircraft that was in production when the US entered World War II to the end of the war. The Germans called the P-38 the Fork-Tailed Devil. The Japanese called it Two Planes, One Pilot. Over 10,000 P-38s were produced. Of that total, only 5 are still airworthy. The P-38 Lightning in my photograph belongs to Fagen Fighters World War II Museum in Granite Falls, Minnesota. She arrived at Culpeper Airport on the morning of May 7, 2015 to take part in the Arsenal of Democracy Fly Over of Washington DC on May 8th, the 75th anniversary of VE Day. "Misty Morning Arrival"http://goo.gl/z1qsd2 Delayed by weather on the way from Minnesota, Fagen Fighter's P-38 Lighting, Ruff Stuff, finally arrives at Culpeper Airport at 7:30 am on May 7, 2015, for the Arsenal of Democracy. #warbird #p38 #lightning #p38lightning #plane #usaaf #armyairforces #airforce #aviation #photography #canon #flybyphotography
