…It’s Things Thursday: Bell & Ross BR 01 Airborne?

Bell & Ross BR 01 Airborne

If you’re in the mood for a new watch, then check out the Bell & Ross BR 01 Airborne, a limited edition, skull themed design that takes its inspiration from the US Airborne’s motto, “Death From Above”.

The all black face features a photo luminescent skull, sword hands, automatic movement, and crossbones themed accents.

…Fahrenheit looks scarry?


The new Fahrenheit coaster at Hershey Park now features the steepest drop of any coaster in the US.

How steep?

Try 97 degrees. (For those of you wondering: Yes, that is PAST vertical.)

The coaster, which features a 121 foot drop, a 107 foot inverted loop, two inverted corkscrew rolls, a Cobra element, an Airborne inverted S roll, two hills called Airtime hill, and two High-speed/banked curves, reaches a maximum speed of 58 mph, and takes 12 riders on an 85 second ride of their life.

Check out Popular Mechanics for a behind the scenes look at how the coaster was made, and hold on to your lunch if you’re going to watch the video.
