Many of you come to this website for the “Forgotten Aircraft” series, and it is entirely likely you know about the Hush-Kit website already. But just in case you are into military aviation and do not know about it, this review is for you.

Hush-Kit, whichhttps://hushkit.net/ calls itself “The Alternative Aviation Magazine” (justifiably) is a fantastic website. The authors have literally forgotten more about the subject than I will ever know. The sites editor, Joe Coles, has created a website that deals with both the bizarre and quirky facets of the field, as well as some top rate articles and interviews.

So, for example, on Hush Kit you can find pieces dealing with things like the use of narcotics by military pilots to incredible exotic prototype aircraft that you have probably never heard of.

Then you have interviews with pilots who have flown…well, just about everything! Want to read about what flying the F-35 is really like? It’s here.

What about the MiG-25? Interested in hearing from a pilot who flew it? It is in Hush-Kit.

How about the experiences of an F-15 pilot in tangling with F-14s, -16s and F-4s in dissimilar combat?

The point is, you can pretty much just pick a random page from the Hush-Kit archive, and you will find something you will go “ohhhh!” to and read.

And that will probably lead you onto something else.

So if you haven’t heard of Hush-Kit, like military aviation and fancy learning something new, check it out HERE.
