    #26 huh?

    • Jabroni

      Its a plane

      • boldspoo

        It's a bird.

        • stuk

          IT's SUPERMAN!!!!!!!

          • Dano

            Taking off from AFAICT Sea-Tac.

            • TitoRigatoni

              Sea-Tac? Srsly? This doesn't look anything like Seattle.

              I think maybe you meant Kai Tak?

              • Hmm

                I would have thought all the cars driving on the left side of the road would be a major giveaway that this is nowhere in the USA.

                • guest

                  and the fact everything looks Japanese.

        • its_forge

          It's a frog

    • Mike Hunt

      japan is confusing

    • Kimmy

      Looks like it's landing at the old airport in Hong Kong, it was crazy, you could see into peoples apartment windows just before touching down.

      • TitoRigatoni

        Yeah, that would be Kai Tak as mentioned above.
        I don't think there was a tunnel under the runway at Kai Tak though.

    • jojo

      there's one such runway in singapore!

  • Lee


  • Johnny K.

    You know what would make this an awesome post? Anything but this… Especially anything with boobs…

    • flio

      If you want to look at tits go to a porn site

    • The J

      Oh, I think Chive covers the boobs quite enough. It's the variety that makes it what it is.

    • Buford_Justice

      giant planes are interesting, you are not

    #34, The Blue Angels in San Francisco. They used to be able to fly through the city between the buildings and shit. SUPER BADASS. But alas… they are no longer permitted =(

    • DeBoh

      I dunno bro hahn Kinda looks like Annapolis they practice here all the time

      • Muadieb

        That was in San Francisco… Fleet week a couple years ago.

    • nuccabay

      they always perform at the cherry festival in traverse city MI, i used to love those shows when i was a kid…actually they are still pretty badass

    • Kevin

      thanks a lot bin ladin

      • 99%

        it's just frowned upon, like masterbating on an airplane

    • Chiv3On

      Thanks stupid America hating hippie fags in San Fran!

    • Joe Q?

      You stole my computer's background photo!

    • Jon

      Nope that looks more like the Seattle seafair they do in the summer

  • jobxus

    Now all we need is the USS ENTERPRISE

  • jasgat66

    #14 Pretty steep takeoff there….

    • MC Hammer

      Instructor: "Now, pull back on the controls."
      Student: "OK"
      Instructor: "NOT THAT FAR!!!"

    • Buford_Justice

      the wings dont look like they like it very much, bent up above the top of the fuselage!

      • Capt. KeiOss

        That's normal. If they didn't bend they would break off the first time the aircraft hit turbulence.

    • Maynard G. Krebs

      Please be sure seat is in an upright position…..

  • Dan

    #5 Just guessing, but I bet that's the two best pilots in the world.

    • JLC

      Or it's just a 747 ferrying the space shuttle from one location to another…..

    • patrri

      the 747 carries the shuttle into orbit.

      • BillyBob

        Seriously? The 747 is just used to move the shuttle from one location to another.

      • Bink

        I think you've seen Superman Returns a few too many times..

      • DEBO1234


        • its_forge

          And the place it lands in Florida is directly adjacent to the clothing-optional beach. Yeah.

      • Red

        I believe we used rockets to put the shuttle into orbit. You know, a guy can get smacked for being that stupid.

    • Dan

      I'm an idiot.. i mistook a space shuttle for a plane. Laugh at me.

      • just sayin

        Pretty sure that still is one extremely talented cockpit, not like they let just anyone ferry that 2 billion dollar space craft around.

        • RayBoogs

          talented cockpit? what?
          You mean Pilot(s).

    • jared

      Just guessing, but I bet N.A.S.A. likes it doggystyle.

      • HUH?

        doesnt matter, (shuttle) had sex.

    • Dano

      fixed, transporting from VBG.

    • OpMongoose

      Its two planes making baby predator drones duh!

    • Lucky_Charms

      Dan, you shoulda told em all to fuck off. There are two pilots flying that 747, and they are indeed talented. You were right from the start.

      And, there is yet another pilot flying whatever the picture is being taken from. So 3. Fuck it, people are stupid.

      • GBR

        you mad bro?

        • Lucky_Charms

          If I got mad because people are stupid, I'd be pissed off the rest of my life.

      • guest

        actually there is 4 pilots.

  • Jlee

    #17 Sirrus baby. Flew that on a Groupon. Great experience.

    • c.ash

      *Cirrus. How was it? I'd love to fly one!

      • rphilman1

        Ugh, don't even bother anymore. Cirrus is now owned by the Chinese.

  • rmb

    #5 sir you have a space ship on your plane

    • Nefaarious

      And here we see a very exciting occurrence taking place! It appears that this spacecraft, is attempting to mate with this different, larger spieces. Exhillarating isnt it?!

  • All methed up

    No pictures of the spruce goose? I’m disappointed

    • Johnnyblogs

      No pictures of the Pokémon plane too =/

      • The Real World

        You mean like #26

    • njvw

      Hercules! An the museum for it is awesome!

    • Lucky_Charms

      Sorry, I got too close to it while smoking. No more Goose.

  • guesr


    • Vinny

      Dude- Pull your pants up, there will be boobs in the next post!

    #30 "Oh hi there"

  • Jacob

    What about Santos Dumont (the inventor of airplanes)? What would he say if he could see us now?

    • Unfkngblvbl

      considered the "father of aviation," not the inventor of the airplane.

      • Jacob

        Sorry, Santos Dumont is the inventor of the airplane.

        • Unfkngblvbl
          • Jacob

            I can also copy and paste a link that says Santos Dumont is the inventor. But I'm not down for that argument. You can live your illusion all the way you want. KCCO.

        • 6_Crack_rocks

          Sorry, but you are incorrect. He built one of the first derigable or rigid air ship. He also built the first plane to fly in Europe, but did not build the first air plane. The fact that the Wright brothers plane did not have wheels does not mean it was not an airplane.

        • welshist

          I bet your door is fucked, what with all the girls kicking it down to get to you and your facts

    • AKranger

      Did you read the article Jake?? Maybe you should read it again.

      • Jacob

        Did you read the whole thread? I already answered about the article.

  • flio

    If the Wright brothers could see us now they would make fun of our lack of awesome mustachios

  • Layla

    #9 RIP

    • MGD


      • rphilman1

        No, Concorde.

    • the man

      I've actually been on that museum in Sinsheim Germany, last december. KCCO from Nicaragua 😀 pretty awesome inside, kinda tiny xD

      • Ricco

        Viva el Boer

    • Buford_Justice

      I like the reverse engineered Russian version in front, canards on front make it look cool.

    • Disciple

      Actually the best plane in the world was not an American plane…

  • hark1985

    #18 like a hipster boss

    • TitoRigatoni

      that plane was built in 1908, so I don't think the Wright brothers would be all that amazed by it.
      well, maybe amazed that it's still flying I guess…

      • http://twitter.com/trustnoone73 @trustnoone73

        They would have seen #3 too

        • TitoRigatoni

          Yup, I think that's a 1912 Blackburn, so yeah, they were probably familiar with it 🙂

  • Pete

    #18 that looks safe…

  • Dan

    #31 Two pilot incredibly jealous of each other.

    • Ned Flanders

      I'd take the old school P47 because of badassedness.

      • Red

        I've seen that plane. The dude has millions in the restoration. It is every bit badass as it looks.

  • hark1985

    #4 Edwards AFB

  • Meh

    #29 Ed Force 1. This post is complete!

    • Lil John

      Totally Brutal.

      I wish MY band was big enough to have our own airplane.Alas all we have is a beat up old van,Down by the river.

    • ed305

      up the irons !!! chive on !!!

  • Zatoichi505

    #31 awesome pic!!

    • HUH?

      im going as fast as i can!! im going as slow as i can!!!

  • Tom

    #24 i honestly thought was a ramp to jump boats….im an idiot

    • tapsnapornap

      I saw something like that too at first. I'm thinking; why did somebody poorly shop a giant ramp onto that island and further to that, what is it doing in this post??

    • Martin McFly

      at least you're a funny idiot!

  • Bink

    #24 what exactly am I looking at here? haha

    • 6_Crack_rocks

      I believe that is a solar powered plane that was designed to fly for unlimited lengths of time.

      • Kevin

        Close, you're probably thinking of Solar Impulse. Different design, different goal.

        The picture is actually of one of NASA's Pathfinder series aircraft (might be Helios) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASA_Pathfinder

  • gmen

    #17 why dont all planes have one as a safety feature??

    • Damn kids

      That's obviously a drag plane who just finished his race…

    • Gunpe

      It's an option for small planes and ultra lights. Emergency ballistic parachute. I've seen a few demonstrations of them. I would get one if I had a small plane.

    • ThatJoshGuy

      Auto-Pilot – ur doing it wrong. The chute should have FAIL printed on it.

    • Buford_Justice

      commercial jets are a bit heavy for chutes an 800,000 lb 747 would need a lot of parachutes
