Just throw this one on top of the mountain of reasons not to go to Australia. Unless you love spiders so big they have souls, then go for it. The amazing feature here is that amazingly, no one is screaming about the massive, terrified spider scrabbling around inches above everyone's heads. Regular people get in car accidents because they saw a bee, so the fact that they landed fine with a monster in the cockpit is a testament to that excellent pilot focus everyone's always talking about.

The dual-mode AirCar made its first inter-airport flight in a historic and very cool sign of the times. It's unclear who would want or who could afford one of these things, but at least we're one step closer to the mythical "flying car" fantasy we've all had for decades. The AirCar, coming to collect dust in a billionaire's third home near you.

Anyone who's ever ridden on a plane, seen a plane, or even heard about them is probably under the impression that they need a runway or at least some length of space to take off or land. With a strong enough headwind to slow the thing down, that's not always the case. Observe.

Overworked Flight Attendant Told To Play "Interesting" Movie, Plays Disaster Film

Flight Attendants have to deal with some strange, and wildly entitled people, but they're put in an interesting position of power with the ability to control someone's entire travel experience. That means we get tales like this flight attendant who handily dealt with a problem flyer and this tumblr thread of a flight attendant's wildest stories. This particular flight attendant said "screw it" and watched the fallout of playing a plane crash movie during a flight.

Here's a Russian fighter jet pilot choosing to re-negotiate a failed landing, coming what looks like a few feet of the carrier and popping back off into the air. How do you say "maybe next time" in plane?

A small plane had to make an emergency landing on a Minnesota highway, hitting an SUV in the process. No injuries were reported. Luckily for everyone, the pilot of the small plane was Craig Gifford, an award-winning acrobatics pilot. He said he had to make the emergency landing after experiencing engine failure. All in all, not a bad person for the job.

A pilot landing at LAX called air traffic control about a "guy in a jet pack." Probably the most interesting part about this whole thing is that, evidently, if you fly a jet pack within 300 meters of an airplane, they won't really do anything about it?
