In the 75th anniversary year of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, aircraft including those from the Commemorative Air Force joined a light Interstate Cadet that actually encountered the Japanese force that day. Video from Saturday, 30 July 2016. Have you subscribed to the Airailimages Channel?
These types of videos are much more meaningful to me considering my father was A-3 aircrew for a huge chunk of his navy carrier. You have to respect these insane crews how flew these planes in the worst conditions. Glad these guys came home safely.
Here’s a look at warbird action at Oshkosh on Saturday during EAA AirVenture 2016. Look for the Commemorative Air Force P-39 Airacobra, one of only two currently flying in the world. And there’s more — P-64, C-46 Commando, F4U, P-51s, A-1 Skyraiders, T-28s, Texans, a lot to enjoy, and more to come in future videos. Have you subscribed to the Airailimages Channel on YouTube? Thanks!
On this cold day (at least here) I figured this video would be worth a watch!

Chinese Shenyang J-15 fighter jet has successfully carried out the first arrested deck landing on the country’s only aircraft carrier, the Liaoning, Xinhua reported on Sunday citing naval sources.
This achievement marks a crucial step in the development of China’s ambitious aircraft carrier program as landing tests of carrier-based aircraft are the most challenging to perform.
“Capabilities of the carrier platform and the J-15 have been tested, meeting all requirements and achieving good compatibility,” the Chinese Navy said.
The J-15s had made many landings on land-based mock-ups of Liaoning’s deck and performed a number of touch-and-go take-offs and landings during sea trials last month before attempting an arrested landing on the deck of the aircraft carrier, according to Chinese naval experts.
Since the Liaoning entered service in September 2012, its crew has completed more than 100 training and testing programs.
The Admiral Kuznetsov class Varyag aircraft carrier was 70% complete when China bought it from Ukraine for $20 million in 1998. Before being sold, the ship was disarmed and its engines were removed.
China launched a complete overhaul of the ship in 2002, also developing carrier-based aircraft. Beijing has repeatedly insisted the carrier poses no threat to its neighbors and that it will primarily be used for training and research.
The 1,000-ft vessel is designed to carry 26 aircraft and 24 helicopters.
