A Popular Mechanics article about AF Flight 447’s crash – a terrible tragedy. This article comments the recording of the cockpit in the last minutes before the crash. It’s a chilling read.
A Wired article about a hacker-artist group called “les UX” who go around Paris breaking into famous places and repairing old artifacts. It’s an incredible movement, and what’s even crazier (and saddening) is the reaction of the French police:
Air Force pilot Major Brian Shul reminisces about the infamous day he and his co-pilot Walter flew the world’s fastest jet, the SR-71 Blackbird, across the western US while listening in on air traffic control in LA. What unfolded was a classic case of male braggadocio across the airwaves and the formation of an ever lasting bond between co-pilots.
In my opinion, this short film does a great job conveying why we run.
