    It seems really strange for an aviation and travel lover like myself to say this, but I've decided to stop traveling this month due to the pandemic. In this video, I reveal some of the current pain points related to flying and travel.

    With so many flights canceled, so many countries on the red list, so many PCR tests requirements, and so many apps to download. There’s just so much work before you fly internationally. It begs the question will travel ever be the same again?

    In the video, I invited 3 experts to talk about how flying will change in 2022. Is there a new normal developing? How can we have a smoother and more consistent travel experience? What’s the outlook of the commercial aviation industry in 2022?

    Thanks to the following aviation expert commenting in this video:

    The most advanced fighter jet in the world, the F-35B, takes on an unlikely foe during landing. Don't be fooled, this tiny terror causes a massive worry for the team.

    HMS Queen Elizabeth is Britain’s biggest ever warship. It took nine years to build her at a cost of £3.5 billion. Nearly 1,500 sailors, marines and aviators have left for a make-or-break four-month deployment on the high seas. This is to forge the brand new ship’s company into an effective fighting force, but their main mission is to test the top secret F-35B Lightning Stealth Fighter – the most advanced fighter aircraft in the world that will give the ship its lethal sting.

  • Passenger aircraft falls out of sky - What happened to Flight 447? | 60 Minutes Australia

    33:52

    The story of Flight 447 (2013). It has been called the Titanic of air disasters. A passenger aircraft so advanced that the chance of it falling out of the sky is unthinkable. But on a stormy June night in 2009 that's just what happened to an Air France A330. Its terrifying descent into the Atlantic Ocean took just four minutes. For three years, what happened inside the cockpit remained a mystery. But as you'll see now, the black box tapes have revealed a shocking and scary scenario of how quickly and easily a high tech passenger plane can crash.

  • How NASA and Startups Are Bringing Supersonic Flight Back

    8:09

    Supersonic travel isn’t here for the public to use… yet. However, NASA and a handful of private startups are exploring making supersonic travel a reality for the first time in almost 20 years. One of their goals is to make a quieter sonic boom, which is a lot easier said than done. In the last episode on supersonic flight, Julian explores the future of traveling faster than the speed of sound.

    One company, Spike Aerospace, is developing a jet that the vast majority of us will still never get to buckle into. They’re focused on making small private planes aimed at wealthy business executives. Another startup called Boom has a very different strategy. They’re developing a jet called the Overture that’s eerily reminiscent of the only commercially successful SST to date, the Concorde. Boom’s stated goal is to eventually offer flights anywhere in the world in under 4 hours for as little as 100 dollars a ticket.

    Some big airlines have shown interest; United ordered 15 Overtures. But as the makers of Concorde will tell you, just because an airline has placed an order doesn’t mean they won’t change their mind and cancel later.

    Even if these designs can get off the ground, there’s still a big problem they’ll have to overcome. Civil supersonic flights over the US are still banned because of that inescapable consequence of the physics of sound, the sonic boom. In the last few years though, engineers have been searching for a way to turn down the boom’s volume. Maybe if it’s quiet enough, people on the ground won’t mind it (or even notice it), and the FAA might lift its ban. That would open up transcontinental or long haul routes for SSTs, making them viable to buy and operate in bigger numbers and drive down overall costs.

    One of the most promising hopes for quieter, faster-than-sound travel is being developed by NASA in collaboration with Lockheed Martin.

    Supersonic Technologies

    “The development of a new experimental plane called the X-59 QueSST—which stands for Quiet Supersonic Technology—is advancing as part of the Low-Boom Flight Demonstration mission. When the new X-plane arrives from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company’s Skunk Works plant, Armstrong researchers will qualify and flight test it.”

    Aviation companies are plotting the return of supersonic flight — and they think their jets will be better than the Concorde

    “Since the Concorde was retired in 2003, supersonic flight has been absent from the aviation industry. Fifteen years later, three startups and a major defense contractor are plotting its return.”

    Boom Supersonic aims to fly 'anywhere in the world in four hours for $100'

    “Designed to seat between 65 and 88 people, Overture will focus on over 500 primarily transoceanic routes that will benefit from the aircraft's Mach-2.2 speeds -- more than twice as fast as today's subsonic commercial jets. A journey from New York to London would take just three hours and 15 minutes while Los Angeles to Sydney would be cut down to eight and a half hours.”

  • The Return Of Commercial Supersonic Travel

    5:37

    Hello, welcome to NeoScribe.
    Airliners today travel at roughly the same cruising speeds as they have been for the past 50 years!
    Traveling between 880–926 km/h.
    You would think that commercial air travel would have improved since the 1960s.
    And it did, back in 1976, with the British-French turbojet-powered supersonic passenger airliner called the Concorde.
    The Concorde was one of greatest aircraft ever designed.
    It had a maximum speed over twice the speed of sound at Mach 2.04 or 2,518 km/h!
    On board the Concorde, passengers could cross the Atlantic Ocean in little more than three hours, about half the time it took other airplanes.
    Unfortunately, the Concorde retired in 2003 due to a lot of reasons, but one of the reasons was that the sonic boom it produced was so strong that it could only fly over water.
    But supersonic commercial air travel is about to be reborn!!
    Enter NASA's Low-Boom Flight Demonstrator program.
    The program stems back to a contract to Lockheed Martin in February 2016 for the preliminary design of a supersonic aircraft that reduces a sonic boom into a gentle thump.
    This resulted in the Quite Supersonic Technology or QueSST aircraft, AKA the X-59.
    In order to reach the program’s goal, the X-59 needs to be able to cruise at a speed of 1512 kph while reducing the noise to 75 perceived level decibel which is similar to the volume of a car door closing.
    So, Lockheed Martin has begun producing the aircraft and is aiming for the first test flight in 2021
    From there, the X-59 will be flown over various cities to collect response data from a residence on the ground.
    Then that data will be used to establish a commercial supersonic standard which would, in turn, abolish the regulations banning supersonic flight over land.
    Hopefully, Lockheed can pull this off.
    But they aren’t the only company on the Supersonic Scene.
    Boom Technology, a startup based out of Colorado is developing a 55 passenger Mach 2.2 airliner that will enter service by the mid-2020s.
    While they are aren’t developing low boom technology at the moment, there are around 500 over-water routes that will be viable for the aircraft.
    And the first step is finishing the XB-1 AKA, the Baby Boom which is a 1/3rd scale version of the full production model simply called Boom.
    Boom Tech claims that the XB-1 is the fastest CIVIL jet in history!
    It will be able to reach speeds of 2715 km/h and will be used to collect data to refine the safety and aerodynamics for the full-scale model.
    I can’t wait to see the full-scale version, it looks incredible!
    Boom Tech is aiming for round-trips from NY to London for $5,000, which is WAY cheaper than the cost to fly the same route on the Concorde which used to cost $20,000 adjusted for inflation.
    And if that’s not exciting enough, there are at least two other companies developing supersonic passenger aircraft, including Aerion and Spike AeroSpace.
    Aerion is based out of Nevada and is developing the stunning AS2 in collaboration with Lockheed Martin.
    The aircraft will travel at Mach 1.5 but it will not incorporate low-boom technology from Lockheed’s QueSST, although future versions may at some point.
    The AS2 is designed to carry up to 12 passengers and everything about it looks stunning!
    Aerion plans to complete the design phase of the AS2 by 2020 and start testing the aircraft soon after and finally bring it to market by 2023.
    I can’t wait to see it completed!
    Finally, there’s Spike Aerospace based out of Boston who is developing the 18 passenger S-512 quiet supersonic business jet.
    What I like about Spike is they are reaching for the prize as the S-512 will be incorporating low boom technology while still cruising at Mach 1.6 or 1,700 km/h!
    The S-512 is easily my favorite aircraft out of all of these because not only does it have low-boom tech, it has the coolest cabin of any plane I’ve seen!
    Instead of having windows, the plane is lined with tiny cameras, and the footage is displayed on special screens on the interior walls.
    That’s incredible!
    I am so excited for ALL of these projects!
    And I can’t wait to cover this topic again as these projects unfold.
    I mean come on, it’s almost 2019, let’s get supersonic already!

    Alright, that’s all I have for now.
    I hope you enjoyed your journey, if you did, please leave a like and subscribe.
    I am NeoScribe and I’ll see you on the next journey.

  • Soviet Spies, Sonic Booms, and Aerodynamics: The First Supersonic Flights

    12:00

    The sound barrier was officially shattered in 1947, and by the 1950s military jets started routinely breaking the sound barrier, and not just small fighters, but big bombers too. So the next logical question was, when would the public go supersonic too? The early history of supersonic flight is complicated, and it involves gorgeous engineering, soviet espionage, and terrorizing citizens of Oklahoma.

    The first sonic boom from an aircraft rang out over the Mojave Desert in southern California in October of 1947. Piloting the rocket-powered Bell XS-1, Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier and joined an exclusive club of which he was the first member. Better known by its later designation of “X-1, the XS-1 was built for speed, with a body shaped like a .50 caliber bullet, wings that were thin but very strong, and control surfaces at the tail that could move as one big unit so they’d work despite the shock waves. That last innovation was a major breakthrough for high speed flight that was kept top secret, and it would give early American fighter jets an edge over their Soviet-made opponents in the Korean war.

    Racing to establish themselves at the forefront of what was thought to be the future of air travel, three big players emerged: the United States, the Soviets, and a cooperative effort between the French and the British, with those being listed in order from least successful to most successful.

    In the last few years, NASA and a few startups have decided to take another look at bringing SSTs back.

    Breaking the Sound Barrier | The Greatest Moments in Flight

    “In 1935, a simplified explanation of the challenges of supersonic flight led to the creation of the term sound barrier, which seemed to imply a physical wall that could not be overcome. Bullets and cannon balls had exceeded the speed of sound for hundreds of years, but the question loomed as to whether or not a plane — or a man — could withstand the pressures that accompanied it. The U.S. Air Force set out to answer this looming question.”

    The American Concordes that never flew

    “It was one of the most ambitious aircraft design projects in history, so what happened to the US plans to master supersonic passenger flight?”

    Soviets test supersonic airliner

    “In 1965, the French arrested Sergei Pavlov, head of the Paris office of the Soviet airliner Aeroflot, for illegally obtaining classified information about France’s supersonic project. Another high-level Soviet spy remained unknown, however, and continued to feed the Soviets information about the Concorde until the spy was identified and arrested in 1967.”

    View full lesson:

    Objects that fly faster than the speed of sound (like really fast planes) create a shock wave accompanied by a thunder-like noise: the sonic boom. These epic sounds can cause distress to people and animals and even damage nearby buildings. Katerina Kaouri details how scientists use math to predict sonic booms' paths in the atmosphere, where they will land, and how loud they will be.

    The world’s favorite blue hedgehog is back for a next-level adventure in SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2. After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands. From the filmmakers behind The Fast and the Furious and Deadpool, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG 2 stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Jim Carrey returning, alongside new additions Shemar Moore, with Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles, and Colleen O'Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails.

    Payload Mass Improvements of Supersonic Retropropulsive Flight for Human Class Missions to Mars

    Note: Any views expressed in this video are the views of the author, and do not represent the views of NASA, Made In Space, SpaceX or Purdue University.

    Advisor: Dr. Michael Grant
    Committee: Dr. Robert Kenley, Dr. James Longuski

    Abstract: Supersonic retropropulsion (SRP) is the use of retrorockets to decelerate during atmospheric flight while the vehicle is still traveling in the supersonic/hypersonic flight regime. In the context of Mars exploration, subsonic retropropulsion has a robust flight heritage for terminal landing guidance and control, but all supersonic deceleration has, to date, been performed by non-propulsive (i.e. purely aerodynamic) methods, such as aeroshells and parachutes.

    Extending the use of retropropulsion from the subsonic to the supersonic regime has been identified as an enabling technology for high mass humans-to-Mars architectures. However, supersonic retropropulsion still poses significant design and control challenges, stemming mainly from the complex interactions between the hypersonic engine plumes, the oncoming air flow, and the vehicle's exterior surface. These interactions lead to flow fields that are difficult to model and produce counter intuitive behaviors that are not present in purely propulsive or purely aerodynamic flight.

    This study will provide an overview of the work done in the design of SRP systems. Optimal throttle laws for certain trajectories will be derived that leverage aero/propulsive effects to decrease propellant requirements and increase total useful landing mass. A study of the mass savings will be made for a 10 mT reference vehicle based on a propulsive version of the Orion capsule, followed by the 100 mT ellipsoid vehicle assumed by NASA's Mars Design Reference Architecture.

  • Why Airbus And Boeing Dominate The Sky

    14:47

    Airbus and Boeing dominate an already under competitive airline manufacturing industry. The duopoly owns the sky by making up 99% of global large aircraft orders and those large plane orders make up more than 90% of the total plane market according to the Teal Group, an aerospace market analysis company (regional jet manufacturers only account for 7% of the airplane market by value).

    The duopoly doesn’t have many competitors, but overseas competition is brewing. China’s state-run company, COMAC, is poised to make waves in the aviation manufacturing industry, but some say not for a couple decades.

    This is how Airbus and Boeing took over airplane manufacturing.

  • F-35B STOVL Transition, Hover, and Return To Forward Flight - Farnborough Airshow

    6:35

    An edited down version of Tuesday's display at Farnborough. ( and zoomed in to highlight the STOVL transition, hover and transition to forward flight. The top and lower doors and engine swivel are shown along with the clean up at the end.

    The F-35B STOVL operation is made possible through the Rolls-Royce patented shaft-driven LiftFan® propulsion system and an engine that can swivel 90 degrees when in short takeoff/vertical landing mode. Because of the LiftFan®, the STOVL variant has smaller internal weapon bay and less internal fuel capacity than the F-35A. It uses the probe and drogue method of aerial refueling.

    The Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning II STOVL At Trade Tuesday Farnborough Airshow 2016. First flying appearance at FIA after RIAT16.

    The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, all-weather stealth multirole fighters undergoing final development and testing by the United States. The fifth generation combat aircraft is designed to perform ground attack and air defense missions. The F-35 has three main models: the F-35A conventional takeoff and landing (CTOL) variant, the F-35B short take-off and vertical-landing (STOVL) variant, and the F-35C carrier-based Catapult Assisted Take-Off But Arrested Recovery (CATOBAR) variant. On 31 July 2015, the first squadron was declared ready for deployment after intensive testing by the United States.

    The F-35B is the short takeoff and vertical landing (STOVL) variant of the aircraft. Similar in size to the A variant, the B sacrifices about a third of the A variant's fuel volume to accommodate the vertical flight system. Vertical takeoffs and landings are riskier because of threats such as foreign object damage. Whereas the F-35A is stressed to 9 g, the F-35B's stress goal is 7 g. As of 2014, the F-35B is limited to 4.5 g and 400 knots. The next software upgrade includes weapons, and allows 5.5 g and Mach 1.2, with a final target of 7 g and Mach 1.6. The first test flight of the F-35B was conducted on 11 June 2008. Another milestone, the first successful ski-jump launch was carried out by BAE test pilot Peter Wilson on 24 June 2015.

  • The Pocket Washing Machine - Does It Suck?

    5:46

    ( ⚆ _ ⚆ ) Today’s Mystery Video -

    Nival Travel Laundry -

    Is pocket washing the future of clean clothes or does it suck?


    More info from the manufacturer -

    Doing laundry can many times be a burden, as wash-only clothes and garments need special care. And what happens when travelers are on a trip and no washing machine is available?

    Behold Nival, a game-changing portable washer to help clean your clothes, protects delicates from damage, saves 60 times energy, and gets laundry done easier with less hassles.

    Delicate clothing is the greatest concern of the laundry world. One mistake can bring your favorite garments to badly stretched or destroyed stuff.

    But look at this, what would be worse than wasting an evening washing clothes by hand?

    To solve this, Nival utilizes the powerful transducer to automate scrubbing clothes, passively help detach all traces of contamination: dirt, oil, dust, grease, pigments thoroughly in a gentle way.

    It protects delicates from damage from a conventional washing machine. Just 30 to 40 minutes, rinse your clothes, hang up to dry, you will be able to dress up your favorite garments the next day.

    Unpack suitcase, do laundry and return suitcase to closet for the next time trip: those post-trip tips no longer apply.

    Nival helps you stay tidy and comfortable during traveling. No hassles returning with loads of dreaded clothes.

    Nival has a built-in powerful transducer in the chamber. It induces high pressure waves at hand-wash frequency, which generates cavitation bubbles to agitate a liquid. The agitation produces high forces on contaminants adhering to clothes and it is also able to penetrate microfibers to thoroughly detach contamination like dirt, oil, dust, grease, pigments, etc.

    This year marks the 50th anniversary of that remarkable feat of technology and daring. And while the moonwalkers, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, dominate our memories of the moon landing, there’s a third astronaut who deserves his place in history. Michael Collins piloted the Apollo 11 command module spacecraft in lunar orbit while his two colleagues collected moon rocks. In a rare interview he tells Sarah Abo if it wasn’t for him, one of our greatest successes would have been a monumental failure.

    3:14

    Russia's first newly-built Tu-160M 'White Swan' strategic bomber recently performed its debut flight. As per the Russian United Aircraft Corporation, the missile-carrying bomber has 80% of its equipment upgraded. Entering service in the late 1980s, the Tu-160 was the last strategic bomber designed for the Soviet Union. The upgraded bomber is designated to strike in remote areas with nuclear and conventional weapons. In September 2020, the 'White Swan' flew non-stop for around 25 hours, covering more than 20,000km. While the US and China are focussing on stealth fighters, Moscow says it will build more new model Tu-160 bombers. Watch the full video for more.

  • How will people travel in the future? | The Economist

    3:37

    From flying cars to pods that travel at over 1,000kph, revolutionary new ways to travel are being dreamed up by ambitious companies. But which pioneering visions are most likely to take off?

    Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube:

    Hollywood movies have envisaged a future of hoverboards and flying cars - these imaginary machines might not be too far from reality. By 2030 a quarter of shared passenger miles traveled on America's roads could be in self-driving vehicles. It's believed eight out of ten people will be using Robotaxis in cities where available by 2035. There will also be more emphasis on sharing journeys. All this could reduce the number of cars on city streets by 60 percent, emissions by 80 percent, and road accidents by 90 percent.

    And then there are flying cars - or more accurately - passenger drones and helicopter hybrids. Uber is investing heavily in this technology. Los Angeles, Dallas, and some states in Australia could see test flights within a couple of years - but these cross city flights will require changes to air traffic control systems, which will probably take longer to develop than the flying vehicles themselves.

    Traveling across country could be far quicker too. China is leading the world in high-speed bullet trains that are capable of traveling over 400 kilometres per hour. By 2020, 80 percent of the country's major cities could be linked to the network. But for high-speed travel, the ambitious Hyperloop could leave bullet trains in the dust. It's an ambitious system in which pods move along tubes in a mere vacuum. The lack of air resistance means pods could reach speeds of over 1,000 kilometers per hour.

    Virgin wants to deliver a fully operational Hyperloop system by the mid-2020s. The company claims its Hyperloop pods could travel from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in 30 minutes. But the potential dangers of travel at such great speeds, and the cost, mean the Hyperloop will not be a reality for decades.

    In the air, the makers of supersonic jets are promising to slash travel times too. Arion wants to carry 12 passengers in luxury at 1.4 times the speed of sound - about 60% faster than typical aircraft today, and rival Boom hopes to be flying its supersonic airliner by 2023, carrying 55 passengers up to 2.2 times the speed of sound.

    Skeptics say these ideas are impractical and expensive, with many technical challenges to overcome. Despite this, tech and engineering companies are boldly taking up the challenges of passenger transit - promising to propel us into the future

    56

    Bad weather delayed flight MU5331 from Shanghai's Hongqiao Airport by five hours on Sunday. The flight, which was scheduled to depart Shanghai at 9:00 p.m on July 28 did not leave until after 2 a.m. the next day, only to be turned back due to bad weather. Flight MU5331 was diverted back to Shanghai's Pudong Airport on approaching its destination due to the unrelenting weather in Beijing. More than six hours later, its supplementary flight MU533Y attempted to return to the capital but was again diverted back to Shanghai because of the bad weather. Many flights were canceled due to bad weather in north China. #fun #flight
