The Best Airplane Stunts Of 2016, By Air Force Fighter Jets, In A Air Show

Aircraft’s have truly undergone several and amazing innovations since their invention in 1903 by the Wright brothers. Over the years, not only have their designs and machinery specifications drastically improved, there have also been developments in terms of their functions and use.

Initially, the goal for the creation of these machines was to provide a faster and safer mode of travel and transport not only for people but for cargo’s as well.

Seeing its great potential, the military has obviously taken interest in aircraft’s and has since then, integrated them in the army’s arsenal and the rest is history.

Nowadays, airplanes continue to serve as either commercial airliners or military aircraft’s. With the latter, one common practice known is the airplane stunts or aerobatics.

This is the use of flying maneuvers that are not usually done by the air force fighter jets in flights.

While aerobatics are also done for training purposes (since it enhances the pilots’ ability to quickly recover from unprecedented flight situations), it was usually observed more for its recreation and entertainment use.

But whichever the case may be, two things are for certain – one, aerobatics is not for every pilot as it highly requires a broader set of navigation skills, and two, a jet fighter air show is not without risks since aerobatics put the aircraft at a greater structural stress given the unusual flight conditions.

The usual aerobatic maneuvers include rotation of either one of the aircraft’s longitudinal (roll), lateral (pitch), or even vertical (yaw) axes.

However, in Airplane Stunts 2016/Air Force Fighter Jets 2016, an unmanned jet is shown hovering just a few feet from the ground, as if standing.


Such maneuvers are then combined in order to form a complete sequence that then gives it its entertainment and competition value.

To add more effect to the maneuvers, smoke (vaporized fog oil) is usually used to let the viewers see the path the aircraft has traveled.

For safety reasons, stunts are usually done at a low altitude and pilots are required to wear a parachute when performing aerobatics.
