Boeing 787 back in the air after lengthy grounding Mon, 20 May 2013 11:58:04 GMT
After 123 days being grounded and then repaired to ensure its battery systems do not catch fire, Boeing 787 Dreamliners are about to once again make commercial flight in the United States. A United Airlines 787 will fly from Houston to Chicago Monday morning carrying more than 250 passengers including the CEO's of United and Boeing.
Dreamliners fly again for first time in 3 months Sun, 28 Apr 2013 14:48:21 GMT
All Nippon Airways, the Japanese launch customer for Boeing Co's 787, flew its first Dreamliner in more than three months on Sunday to test reinforced batteries installed by the U.S. aircraft maker.

OK that was pretty large, although I'm not sure it is THE largest around.

I was pretty taken with this one though, it's so realistic having seen Victors at aishows when I was a kid:

I think it lost a part around 2:28 in the video. I hope it was nothing important.

That's not too bad, but still a pain to fix.

I almost bought one of these fiberglass rah66 fuselage kits a few years back, but 5k for a close to total cost to build it was a little to scary for me if I ever crashed it.

I found a few more that I really liked:

First, a Mig 29 (cool aircraft, lousy videography)
Jet RC BIG 29


Then an SR 71
SR-71 Flying Jet Model


And finally, the USS Enterprise!
