Blohm & Voss BV 141 B-0, 1941, Germany
The Blohm & Voss BV 141 was unique in having an asymmetrical design. The starboard fuselage contained the cockpit and observer's position, while the port housed the engine and tail surfaces. Due to the fact that its BMW 801 radial engine were used by the Fw 190 fighter, and that the Fw 189, built to the same specification as the BV 141 was in production, only 20 production examples were ordered and delivered.

Vought F4U-1A Corsair, 1943, United States of America
The original F4U-1 Corsairs with the "birdcage" type canopy were unpopular with its pilots, having bad visibility. The improved F4U-1A, had a much less framed, round canopy which considerably increased visibility over the Corsair's rather long nose. The aircraft depicted below served with the U.S. Marine Corps squadron, VMF-212.

"In Katrina's Wake"
New Orleans Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base (Alvin Callender Field), Belle Chasse, Louisiana, September 1, 2005 -- Hurricane Katrina made landfall in Louisiana and Mississippi on August 29, 2005 causing one of the worst natural disasters in the history of the United States. Air and Army National Guardsmen from across the country, along with state and local emergency responders and members of the active duty armed forces, poured into the Gulf Coast region to participate in a massive humanitarian relief effort. The entry point for much of the National Guard’s relief operations in Louisiana was the New Orleans Naval Air Station located immediately south of the Crescent City in the suburb of Belle Chasse. Beginning on September 1, 2005, Air National Guard C-130s and KC-135s airlifted equipment, supplies, food and military personnel into the airfield and began evacuating sick and injured civilians.

Happy accident. I stuck my camera against a hanger window, and the lens hood only covers part. So I also got a cool reflection. #airport #warbird #reflection #airplane
Hands down those WWII guys were the greatest - and coolest! - generation. Kicked Nazi arse and looked awesome doing it. 😎👍🏼

Warbird throwback -mig 15- Fagot - In the early days of the Korean War, the fast, high-climbing little MiG, code-named Fagot by NATO, came as a rude shock to the Americans. Armed with .23 and .37-mm cannons, it shot down a number of B-29s, and forced the USAF to halt daylight bomb raids. The MiG-15 was clearly superior to the American F-80 and P-51 fighters then in Korea, although the American pilots' superior skill and training helped close the gap. On November 8, 1950, an F-80 flown by 1st Lt. Russell Brown shot down a MiG-15 in history's first all-jet dogfight #warbird #fighter #vintageaircraft #миг #миг15 #aviationhistory #avgeek #aviation #mig15
And finally Video from Sky5 - HARVARD CRASH LANDING: No injuries as a vintage single-engine plane went down on Southern California busy 101 freeway on Tuesday and then burst into flames. Authorities say the pilot, the only person on board, was safely removed before flames consumed much of the aircraft. No vehicles on the ground were involved in the afternoon crash that snarled traffic about 30 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. #avgeek #avgeeks #aviator #t6harvard #warbirds #warbird #planecrash

First Flight of the X-35
On this date in aviation history, chief test pilot Tom Morgenfield performed a successful first flight on the Lockheed Martin X-35B.
After winning the competition against the Boeing X-32, it was later put into production and named Lighting II in 2006.
This aircraft is now being delivered to many air forces around the world and will be the frontline multi role asset for many years to come, with continue development of her systems.
The peculiarity of this aircraft is surely the unique engine,
the F119-PW-611 which used an innovative shaft-driven lift fan.
If you want check out this prototype, plan a trip to the Stevens Hadvar Hazy Center:
