Porsche always knows how to go one better. In the development centre in Weissach near Stuttgart, Porsche technicians have put the 918 Spyder super sports car - which can achieve up to 345 km/h (215 mph) on a slimming diet. Since the technical specification is already outstanding, an improvement was only possible by reducing the weight using magnesium instead of aluminium and titanium instead of steel. The lightweight construction of the 887 bhp super sports-car has already overwhelmingly demonstrated its qualities: the 918 Spyder carrying the Martini Racing design and fitted with Weissach Sports equipment - recognizable by the additional aerodynamic wings at the rear and the 7 spoke rims - established a new lap record on the northern circuit of the Nürburgring in September 2013 with a time of 6 minutes 57 seconds.

The Halifax was one of the most famous Royal Air Force 2nd World War bombers and flew more than 47,000 missions over Germany. Compared to the previous version with RR Merlin engines the Mk.III version powered by Bristol Hercules radial engines delivered a great improvement in flight performance. This variant entered service after 1943. Halifax bombers were also employed as towing aircraft during operations in Normandy and at Arnhem as well as for deploying agents behind enemy lines. Although there were many problems during its development and that the Halifax was always overshadowed by the Lancaster, it eventually turned out to be best-known Allied bomber of the War.
The Halifax Mk. III was armed with 8 Browning as well as a Vickers machine gun and could carry a bomb load of 5,900 kg (13000 lbs). The only original fully restored Halifax stands in the National Air Force Museum in Canada in Trenton, Ontario.

Development of the MiG-21 began in 1953. The aircraft was presented to the world for the first time during an air parade over Moscow in 1961. Its first combat missions were flown against aircraft of the US armed forces over Vietnam in 1966. The F-13 was a day only fair weather interceptor. The pilot was directed to his target via radio from a ground based radar unit. Its main armament was the R-3S air-to-air missile which was similar to the then newly developed American Sidewinder missile. 
With the total number reaching around 10,800 machines the Mig 21 was by far the most produced fighter aircraft after the end of the Second World War. Even the later Major General and first German Cosmonaut - Sigmund Jähn, flew the F-13 during his military service.
