United Airlines Boeing 777-200 POWERFUL Takeoff Washington Dulles – THE BEST

This is footage of a United Airlines Boeing 777-200ER (New Colors!) International taxiing, holding, departing, and climbing out of Washington Dulles. The flight was UAL 897 in route to Beijing Capital International. First Class all the way! Listen to that Amazing Engine sound! Look at the ANA Boeing 777 at 1:57 heading out to Tokyo. Then watch as we depart and, turn right headed over Canada. We flew over Northern Alaska and, then south over Siberia into Beijing. Flight time was just over 14 hours. Seat was 3A. You may hear a little bit of radio chatter in the background. I had channel 9 on and had my headphones up against my cameras mic, but it’s very difficult to understand what they are saying due to the volume of channel 9. WATCH IN 1080p! It will improve the quality significantly! Landing in Beijing: www.youtube.com

Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress – Part 1

Part 1 of 6 The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress was a four-engine heavy bomber aircraft developed in the 1930s for the then-United States Army Air Corps (USAAC). Competing against Douglas and Martin for a contract to build 200 bombers, the Boeing entry outperformed both competitors and more than met the Air Corps’ expectations. Although Boeing lost the contract because the prototype crashed, the Air Corps was so impressed with Boeing’s design that they ordered 13 more B-17s for further evaluation. From its introduction in 1938, the B-17 Flying Fortress evolved through numerous design advances. The B-17 was primarily employed by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) in the daylight precision strategic bombing campaign of World War II against German industrial and military targets. The United States Eighth Air Force based at Thorpe Abbotts airfield in England and the Fifteenth Air Force based in Italy complemented the RAF Bomber Command’s nighttime area bombing in Operation Pointblank to help secure air superiority over the cities, factories and battlefields of Western Europe in preparation for Operation Overlord. The B-17 also participated to a lesser extent in the War in the Pacific where it conducted raids against Japanese shipping and airfields. From its pre-war inception, the USAAC (later USAAF) touted the aircraft as a strategic weapon; it was a potent, high-flying, long-range bomber that was able to defend itself, and to return home despite extensive battle damage
