Weapons Seized By Mexican Army

The Mexican Army seized 171 weapons, from rifles and shotguns to RPG's from a large Mexican drug cartel called "Los Zetas".

92,000 rounds of ammunition were also recovered.

Essentially these cartels have enough fire-power to rival some armies.

How Low Can You Go?

I've seen some pretty good low level flying in various videos over the years. But this pilot takes the gold medal. The plane is Argentinian, which is a surprise because most of the crazy flying is done by the French. The aircraft is so low it could almost mow the grass.

Oh well, what ever keeps them busy, as long as they aren't invading The Falklands.

Chinese Aircraft Carrier

The BBC has reported on a Chinese aircraft carrier that is currently under construction. The carrier is an old Admiral Kuznetsov class that was never fully constructed due to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Is it a threat? Unlikely for for now, as the U.S have far more military might, although times are changing. China is set to become the Worlds largest economy in the next 10-20 years, overtaking the U.S.

Here's a comparison of various worldwide aircraft carriers:
