For General Knowledge:
The NASA X-43 was an experimental unmanned hypersonic aircraft developed by NASA as part of its Hyper-X program. It is the fastest aircraft on record with a top speed of an incredible Mach 9.6 (7,310 MPH). The SR-71 Blackbird was developed as a Black Project in the Lockheed Skunk Works in the 1960s.

A great video of the worlds largest flying boat aircraft.
A flying boat is a fixed-winged seaplane with a hull, allowing it to land on water, that usually has no type of landing gear to allow operation on land. It differs from a floatplane as it uses a purpose-designed fuselage which can float, granting the aircraft buoyancy. Flying boats may be stabilized by under-wing floats or by wing-like projections (called sponsons) from the fuselage. Flying boats were some of the largest aircraft of the first half of the 20th century, exceeded in size only by bombers developed during World War II. Their advantage lay in using water instead of expensive land-based runways, making them the basis for international airlines in the interwar period. They were also commonly used for maritime patrol and air-sea rescue.
Their use gradually trailed off after World War II, partially because of the investments in airports during the war. In the 21st century, flying boats maintain a few niche uses, such as dropping water on forest fires, air transport around archipelagos, and access to undeveloped areas. Many modern seaplane variants, whether float or flying boat types, are convertible amphibious aircraft where either landing gear or flotation modes may be used to land and take off.
Built in secrecy, tested in private locations, and flown in stealth ops overseas and in space, these 5 secret military planes and helicopters are pretty crazy. The specs are incredible, thanks to the huge budgets of the collaborating Army, Navy, Air Force. Although there have been some sightings of these super planes, most of you won’t get a chance to see these aircraft except in pictures. Browse this list to learn about the latest in stealth aviation.
