Homebuilt Real Flight Simulator

1205 Homebuilt Real Flight Simulator
Igor Perne (L), 53, an electronic engineer and a member of the International Virtual Aviation Organisation (IVAO), and fellow virtual pilot Franc Lavric gesture for the camera before taking off on a virtual flight in a flight simulator in Nova Vas, Slovenia November 13, 2014. In 2011, Perne, a lifelong flying enthusiast, bought parts of a written-off Cyprus Airways airliner and then spent two and a half years turning the entire nose of the scrapped aircraft into an elaborate flight simulator. Perne had to install some 10km (6.21 miles) of wiring to connect some 300 working switches and 250 indicator lights, as well as hooking up six computers to run the simulation. Perne cooperates with fellow flying enthusiasts in the Netherlands, Germany, and several other countries, flying on virtual routes across a virtual European sky, complete with virtual flight control operators and realistic checklists and weather conditions.

November 8 – 15: The Week in Protests

1202 November 8 – 15: The Week in Protests
A person in a disguise sits on a sidewalk holding a candle during a protest denouncing the apparent massacre of 43 trainee teachers in Mexico City late November 8, 2014. Protesters tried to set the wooden door of Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s ceremonial palace on fire in the historic center. The group, carrying torches, broke away from what had been a mostly peaceful protest demanding justice for the students, who were abducted six weeks ago and apparently murdered and incinerated by corrupt police in league with drug gang members. The sign reads “Ayotzinapa, state terrorism”. (Photo by Edgard Garrido/Reuters)

Illegal Fishing in Zimbabwe

1193 Illegal Fishing in Zimbabwe
In this photo taken Wednesday October 29 2014, a fisherman poses with his catch on the shores of Lake Chivero, west of Harare. Illegal fishing can be hazardous in Zimbabwe, where poachers scan the banks for armed rangers and the water for crocodiles while they cast their rods. The country is in such a dire economic state that thousands of people, unable to find regular work, flock to Lake Chivero in hopes of catching fish, mostly bream, that they can sell for desperately needed income.

MINI Japan by Alexa Meade

1189 MINI Japan by Alexa Meade
Creators of Mini Cooper continue on with their innovative way of promoting their product. First, it was the huge cardboard boxes, which looked like packaging for full sized Mini Coopers, left all over Amsterdam. Now they’ve hired a famous artist Alexa Meade, who is known for making 3-D objects look as if they are 2-D paintings. For this project, Alexa had to fly to Japan, where she turned a whole Mini Cooper into a “drawing”. Even if you know that what you’re seeing on the picture are 3-D objects, your brain refuses to accept this, making you think that Alexa is standing near a sloppy picture of a Mini Cooper
