NASA's flying infrared telescope at Hannover Airport

NASA's flying infrared telescope did some touch and go's at Hannover Airport today. SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy) is a joint German-US space science project and is in service since 2010. The modified Boeing 747 SP (Reg.: N747NA) is carrying a 2.5 metre telescope and performs astronomical observations high above the disturbance of earth's atmosphere.


Aviation - The Invisible Highway

I'm really looking forward to this movie!

Aviation: The Invisible Highway is a story about how the airplane has changed the world. Filmed in 18 countries across all 7 continents, it renews our appreciation for one of the most extraordinary and awe-inspiring aspects of the modern world. The documentary is produced and directed by Brian J. Terwilliger (“One Six Right”), narrated by Harrison Ford, and features an original score by Academy Award-winning composer James Horner. It’s scheduled for a 2015 release.
