F16 Falcon fighter jet refuels mid-flight 52s

F16 Falcon fighter jet refuels mid-flight

An F16 Fighting Falcon refuels in the sky at 30,000 feet above the ground. This is truly an extraordinary scene! The General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft, originally developed by General Dynamics (now Lockheed Martin) for the United States Air Force. Originally designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. The F-16's official name is "Fighting Falcon", but "Viper" is commonly used by its pilots and crews, due to a perceived resemblance to a viper snake as well as the Colonial Viper starfighter on TV science fiction show Battlestar Galactica. Usually, the aircraft providing the fuel in mid-air refueling is specially designed for the task, although refueling pods can be fitted to existing aircraft designs if the "probe-and-drogue" system is to be used. The cost of the refueling equipment on both tanker and receiver aircraft and the specialized aircraft handling of the aircraft to be refueled (very close "line astern" formation flying) has resulted in the activity only being used in military operations. There is no known regular civilian in-flight refueling activity. (source: Wikipedia)

POV hang-gliding over stunning Carpathian Mountains 1m04s

POV hang-gliding over stunning Carpathian Mountains

Check out this epic POV footage of some hang-gliding action over the beautiful and wild Carpathian Mountains. How cool is that? While the old Europeans used to call them “Snowy Mountains”, “Hungarian Mountains” or "Transylvania's Mountains", the range’s modern name can be translated into “Rocky mountains” from the old Slavic word “skála”, meaning rock or cliff. The Carpathian Mountains or Carpathians are a mountain range system forming an arc roughly 932 mi long across Central and Eastern Europe, making them the second-longest mountain range in Europe. With the picturesque forests and steep slopes, the Carpathian chain of mountains is a popular European destination for those who love extreme sports.

This Footage Of Speedflying Over A Waterfall Will Give You An Adrenaline Rush

Check out this incredible point-of-view jump from the Flynarchy team as they execute a successful speedflying session from the top of Kjerag mountain in Lysebotn, Norway. Ozone Fazer provides us with the jaw-dropping footage! Speed flying, also known as speed riding , is the air sport of flying a small, fast fabric wing, usually in close proximity to a steep slope. Speed flying and speed riding are very similar sports; speed flying is when the speed wing is foot-launched, while speed riding (or ski gliding) is a winter sport done on skis. Sustained flight with a speed glider is possible over a ridge in strong winds. Speed flying is a hybrid sport that has combined elements of paragliding, parachuting, and even skiing to create a new sport. Like paragliding, speed flying is done by launching from a slope with the wing overhead, already inflated by the incoming air. The main difference between speed flying and paragliding, is that speed flying is meant to create a fast, thrilling ride close to the slope, while the point of paragliding is usually to maintain a longer, gentler flight. The fast landing technique for speed wings is similar to that used in parachuting. However, parachuting or skydiving is done from a plane or fixed object ( BASE jumping ), and the wing is designed to arrest the free fall. Newer designs of hybrid-wings (also called mini-wings) are now being produced to allow a high speed "hike and fly" from mountainous areas. They can be soared in strong laminar winds and thermalled similar to paragliders, and may also be trimmed for a more traditional speed flying descent.

F-16 Fighter Jet Pilot Takes Amazing Selfies Up In The Air18s

F-16 Fighter Jet Pilot Takes Amazing Selfies Up In The Air

Taking the first class seats and flying of to some exotic place is what we all desire, especially after having a rough day at work. For some people it’s a dream that awaits to become true, while for others it’s a piece of cake. The only thing you need is to catch a plane and take off in an unknown direction. Of course it’s a lot easier when you have your own plane, but unfortunately most of us don’t have that opportunity. That’s not the case with this navy pilot. Not every job has to be boring and this guy seems to know that. He has chosen the right one for him. Every day he gets into his F-16 fighter jet , takes off and raises up into the high altitudes. Sure, not having a proof of visiting the beautiful blue sky is a problem. So he came up with this solution - to take selfies up in the air. This “Fighting Falcon” and his fellow companions get to the airbase airport, prepare themselves and then go straight up in the sky. It is where the party takes place. Randomly they get the chance to visit so many beautiful places, where so much greenery can be seen beneath their feet, so much interesting scenery it’s a shame not to document it. Not only he gets shots of himself, but also of his flying partners fooling around and performing their acrobatic mid-air. As you watch the video, you start wondering whether you have chosen the right job for you, or it still may not be too late for your to try and change it. Being a photographer and taking photos in the middle of nowhere seems like an interesting idea.

Extreme helicopter skydives captured on camera

A thrill seekers wonderland, the open air. With nothing but a parachute and a helmet, these people quickly descend into the world, with the biggest adrenaline rush of their lives. For some, nothing else can be more exciting. But for others, just the sight of the earth from thousands of feet in the sky is enough to make them hurl. For all you adrenaline junkies, you can be sure that you will appreciate this as much as the people in the video! For the most part, skydiving is fairly safe. There are rarely any accidents and malfunctions with the equipment, which seems to be the collective fear of most. Every skydiving company spends a ton of time educating the new skydivers on how to safely descend and deploy the parachute, and most of the time, the newbies are harnessed to a well seasoned veteran. Nothing but high times and high winds. Would you ever go skydiving? Let us know in the comments. For all you thrill seekers, check out Rumble.com to get your fix, and who knows, maybe you'll get some ideas. Check out this amazing footage of some high-altitude helicopter skydives.

Base Jumper Collides With Building In Russia31s

Base Jumper Collides With Building In Russia

These things might not always make sense, but some people actually enjoy doing them. Whether we’re talking about adrenaline sports or absolutely extreme stunts like this one, they are among the most common hobbies in the world. You might be wondering why, so let’s revisit a biology lesson in order to explain this. It all boils down to a hormone called adrenaline. It is released by our adrenal glands usually in really stressful situations, thus getting the name ‘fight or flight’ hormone. What it does is speed up all of our normal functions, starting with our heart beating faster, making the blood flow faster to wherever it is needed. Along with adrenaline, the body releases other hormones that flow faster through the blood vessels thanks to adrenaline, some of them being the hormone of happiness - serotonin and the natural pain-reliever, the hormone endorphin. This heady mix of hormones is what makes these activities worthwhile to the so called adrenaline junkies. This footage shows us that adrenaline sports shouldn’t be taken so lightly. There is a high risk of injury that might turn out to be lethal. A BASE jumper in Russia experiences an incredibly scary moment after slipping upon his exit from a building rooftop and losing control during his landing. Luckily, he only suffered a few minor scratches and bruises during the incident. BASE jumping stands for parachuting or wingsuit flying off of buildings, antennae, spans and tall Earth objects like cliffs and mountains.

Student skydiver experiences scary moment1m25s

Student skydiver experiences scary moment

There isn't one moment to take a calm breath in this video. Every moment leaves you tense. During an accelerated freefall level 3 lesson, a student skydiver named Eugene S. witnessed a very tense moment. He was stuck on his backside while free falling and he was spinning uncontrollably. The amount of fear he must have been feeling at this moment is crazy. It's already scary enough jumping out of a plane, you wan't the free fall to go as smoothly as possible! Luckily for Eugene, one of his quick thinking instructors, was able to stabilize his spinning motion after getting into a safe position. Everything can happen in a blink of an eye. One moment, Eugene was fine, and the next, he couldn't stop spinning. This is a very scary moment, all these people are so brave! Thank goodness they were all able to get out their parachutes so they could land safely! Are you adventurous but aren't really up for sky diving? Why not try out scuba diving and snorkeling? You don't have to jump off a plane for this activity! Check out this diving and snorkeling equipement !

Jaw-dropping paragliding session over sea of clouds1m38s

Jaw-dropping paragliding session over sea of clouds

Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders: lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. Despite not using an engine, paraglides flight can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift, the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters. Check out some epic paragliding over a sea of clouds at 10,000 feet above the Carpathian Mountains. Breathtaking scenery!

Wingsuit BASE Jumper Lands Through Roof Proves This Is An Extreme Sport

We all know that BASE jumping and proximity flying are extreme sports. This POV clip is a guide on how not to execute a cliff jump. During flight, Michael Schwery lost a booty on exit, and came out incredibly low. It took him too long to open the armwings, and when he was all set for landing he had run out of all viable options. Luckily he avoided serious injury, even after landing through a shed roof! BASE jumping , also sometimes written as B.A.S.E. jumping, is parachuting or wingsuit flying from a fixed structure or cliff. "BASE" is an acronym that stands for four categories of fixed objects from which one can jump: building, antenna, span, and Earth (cliff). Due to the lower altitudes of the jumps, BASE jumping is significantly more dangerous than skydiving from a plane. In the U.S., BASE jumping is currently regarded by many as a fringe extreme sport or stunt. Fausto Veranzio, the inventor of the parachute, is widely believed to have performed a parachute jumping experiment for real and, therefore, to be the first man to build and test a parachute. According to the story passed on, Veranzio, in 1617, then over sixty-five years old, implemented his design and tested the parachute by jumping from St Mark's Campanile in Venice. This event was documented some 30 years later in a book Mathematical Magick or, the Wonders that may be Performed by Mechanical Geometry (London, 1648) written by John Wilkins, the secretary of the Royal Society in London.

Paraglider gets stuck in telephone wires11s

Paraglider gets stuck in telephone wires

In life, you have the thrill seekers, and you have the non-thrill seekers. Thrill seekers partake in activities such as sky-diving, bungee jumping, and paragliding. Well this thrill seeker definitely didn't have the best of days. While paragliding, she cut the landing a little close, and ended up getting caught in some telephone wires. It's probably safe to assume that she was suspended up in those wires for quite a while before getting freed. It seems like this para-glider wasn't in poor spirits, casually "hanging out" in the telephone wires. Who knows how long it took to get her down! Sometimes it's just the way things go, and you need to deal with the cards you are dealt. Could it have been the wind, or what about human error? Who knows. This extreme sports enthusiast is not having a good day. We don't know how she ended up in these telephone wires, but we are certain she was stuck there for a while! Check out this paragliding fail!

In addition to the scary, dangerous and even extreme venture that BASE jumping is, this guy takes it to a whole new level when he decides to spice it up and prove to everyone that it is not a big deal if he eats a banana mid-air. This might sound insane and it actually proves to be much more insane that it was described. The fast landing technique for speed wings is similar to that used in parachuting . However, parachuting or skydiving is done from a plane or fixed object (BASE jumping), and the wing is designed for free fall.
