PICTURED: US Navy Blue Angels fly in spectacular formation with Second World War B-29

The US Navy Blue Angels, the world's second oldest flight demonstration team, put on a spectacular display over the skies of Sacramento as they flew practice runs with a historic B-29 superfortress before this weekend's California Capital Airshow. The famous squadron returned to Sacramento for just the second time since 2008. The pilots of the F/A-18 Hornets dazzled the audience, flying just 18 inches apart at some moments during their formation.

Australian fighter jet and cargo plane weave their way between skyscrapers in incredible display of skill for Brisbane festival

Australian warplanes weave their way between Brisbane skyscrapers

A C-17A Globemaster cargo plane (pictured left and inset) and an F/A-18F Super Hornet fighter jet (right) flew low over the Brisbane skyline to mark the Queensland city's annual Riverfire event. Many Brisbane residents stepped out onto their balconies to see the Australian Defence Force planes fly past under the setting sun. Both the planes, which also flew over Brisbane for rehearsals two days earlier, are manufactured by Boeing and operated by Australian Air Force squadrons which are based in Queensland. However, the stunt has previously drawn criticism from residents who said it reminded them of the September 11 attacks and warned that even a 'small mistake' could prove catastrophic.

No, it's not a mirage! The amazing oasis town that flourishes in the middle of the driest place on Earth

cat

In the midst of the Atacama Desert, in Peru, is an oasis town called Huacachina, with lush palm trees, flourishing foliage, and a large lake which is said to have curative properties. Visitors can visit the surreal settlement and the 96 residents, who thrive on running small businesses on their greatest resource; sand.

Dramatic images capture ferocious tornado that looks like a mushroom cloud battering the plains of Wyoming

Dramatic images capture ferocity of a unique tornado that looks like a mushroom cloud

At first glance, these images could be mistake for the mushroom cloud after a nuclear blast. But they actually show a ferocious tornado as it battered the plains of Wyoming.   Veteran storm chaser Greg Campbell captured the pictures of a rare twister as it left behind a trail of devastation near Laramie. Campbell, who snapped the pictures while on holiday northeast of Laramie, said it was the most dramatic tornado he'd ever seen.
