    THE US ARMY'S FUTURISTIC NEW HELICOPTER IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF A FUTURE HELO FLEET || WARTHOG 2017
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Jan 19, 2018
    Bell's V-280 Valor successfully completed its first test flight in December and could win the US Army's competition to replace its fleet of UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters.

    The V-280 can fly at 280 knots with a self-deployable range of 2,100 nautical miles, and a combat range of 500-800 nautical miles. It has a crew of four and can carry 12 troops, meeting all of the requirements the Army has laid out.

    The Army has made it clear though that no single helicopter design would replace its entire helicopter fleet, according to Stars and Stripes.

    Is The U.S. Air Force Still Secretly Plotting To Kill The A-10 Warthog?
    US Defense News



    Published on Jan 19, 2018
    The A-10 Warthog got a major boost from Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson at the end of 2017, and Congress has told the service to overhaul the beloved light attack aircraft’s wings to extend its life by another 20 years. But internally, branch officials would prefer that the tank-killer jet up its wings for good, a new report suggests.

    Civilian A-10 program manager Todd Mathes told roughly 100 officials in a recent meeting on the A-10 project that the Warthog’s multi-million dollar re-winging and rebirth simply “was not going to happen,” the Project on Government Oversight reports.

    Here's the Ugly Plane Still Blinds Enemy Radar After 45 Years
    US Defense News



    Published on Jan 24, 2018
    Let’s face it, the naked eye can only see so far and it can’t track the really fast stuff. Radar makes up for that natural shortcoming and has become a necessity in warfare. In fact, it’s arguably the main reason that the British won the Battle of Britain.

    Ever since the Battle of Britain, folks who wanted — or needed — to put bombs on target in enemy territory needed to disable enemy radar first. Blowing up enemy radar is no easy task as most military forces keep them well guarded. Thankfully, you don’t need to blow up the enemy radar — you just need to make sure it can’t see. During World War II, specialized units, like No. 100 Group of the Royal Air Force, flew a variety of planes modified with jammers with the sole purpose of disrupting radar.

    THE AIR FORCE'S F-15 HAS WON EVERY BATTLE IT HAS EVER FOUGHT || WARTHOG 2018
    Warthog Defense



    Published on Feb 10, 2018
    According to the Syrian version of the story, the MiG-25PDS mimicked a MiG-25R on a reconnaissance sortie by flying very high and fast in the direction of Beirut. When eight Israeli F-15s rose to intercept, the Syrian pilot fired two R-40s at their leader — one from around 37 miles, the other from slightly less than 31 miles, well outside the range of AIM-7F Sparrows, the longest-ranged air-to-air missiles in the Israeli arsenal in 1981.

    P-51 Mustang View Super Bowl LII Heritage Flight
    AIRBOYD



    Published on Feb 11, 2018
    The Wings of the North Air Museum's http://www.wotn.org Sierra Sue II P-51 Mustang lead the U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight over U.S. Bank Stadium at Super Bowl LII on February 4. Sierra Sue was first in a diamond formation including two A-10 Thunderbolt IIs and an F-16 Fighting Falcon.

    Wings of the North is proud to support the USAF Heritage Flight Program, which presents the evolution of USAF air power by flying today's state-of-the-art fighter aircraft in close formation with vintage fighter aircraft. Sierra Sue will be flown by renowned American aviator Steve Hinton for the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation.

    Steve Hinton has flown more than 150 types of aircraft. In 1979 he became the youngest person to set a new 3-kilometer World's Speed Record for piston powered aircraft in a highly modified P-51 Mustang. A founding member of the Motion Picture Pilots Association, Hinton has served as a pilot and /or aerial coordinator for more than 60 feature motion pictures and made-for-TV movies, series and commercials, including chief pilot for Pearl Harbor in 2001 and as himself in Iron Man (2008), Steve Hinton Filmography.

    Sierra Sue II is one of only a handful of flying Mustangs that actually saw combat in World War II. Assigned in 1945 to the 402nd Fighter Squadron, 370th Fighter Group, 9th Air Force, 1st Lt. Robert Bohna named the plane for a girl in his high school. Sierra Sue was fully restored in 2014 by AirCorps Aviation in Bemidji, Minn. to replicate 1944 factory delivery specifications. Authentic details include working World War II era radios and full armor plating.

    Wings of the North Air Museum, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based at Flying Cloud Airport, serves learners of all ages by restoring and showcasing flying aircraft to bring history to life, honoring Minnesota's aviation pathfinders and veterans through exhibits and events, and inspiring youth to meet 21st century challenges by using science, technology, engineering and mathematics. http://www.wotn.org
