The Antonov An-72 NATO reporting name “Coaler” manufactured by Antonov is a Soviet STOL light military transport aircraft later developed into the Antonov An-71. The Antonov An-72 has a STOL capabilities designed be used on unprepared surface and can takeoff on a 620 meter runways and land on a 420 meter runway. The most significant design feature of the An-72 is the use of the Coanda effect to improve STOL performance, which utilizes engine exhaust.

The born in holds the record of the fastest manned aircraft, with a top speed of mph.

on Ramp. Looks like the 6 million dollar man credit sequence plane.

X-24B - The X-24B made two precise landings on the main concrete runway at Edwards which showed that accurate unpowered reentry vehicle landings were operationally feasible. Pilots on these missions would fly steep descents and then perform a "flare out" maneuver at high speeds to make a 200 mph landing. These missions represented the final milestone in a program that helped write the flight plan for the NASA Space Shuttle program. source: Wikipedia

NASAThe was one of a group of lifting bodies flown from 1963 to The was flown 28 times in the program that validated the concept that a Space Shuttle vehicle could be landed unpowered. This image was taken Sep.

F-15 Fighter Jet, On the bucket list!  I want to fly in one of these sooooo bad one day before I die!!!!!

The NASA-Boeing X-48C Hybrid/Blended Wing Body research aircraft

The NASA-Boeing Hybrid/Blended Wing Body research aircraft banks left during one of its final test flights over Edwards Air Force Base.

Largest plane in the world - look at all those engines and wheels. It's a wonder it flies!

That is a HUGE plane, Antonov Mriya. 6 Ichenov progress jets, thats a lot of thrust.

Amunt log

Test Flight The Boeing Blended Wing Body subscale research aircraft made its flight in late October at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.
