Cool Video of the Day

From the Russian documentary "Battle Above the Sea". Watch as a Tu-16 Badger make a low pass over the US aircraft carrier "Essex" in the Norwegian Sea in 1968. Watch as the Badger makes a second pass, below the level of the deck at 500 km/hr at an altitude of 15 meters. Watch as the Badger fails to make a third pass after attempting to turn a 35 meter long plane at an altitude of 15 meters at 500 km/hr.
