Mark & Aerobatics

Here’s another video from Mark Gamer, doing his upsies and downsies… Note the always-perfect weather around Gattopn Airpark     

Flying over America

Here’s a cute video… although personally, I’d be disinclined to haul those steep turns in something like a Wright Flyer. Still, whatever turns you on, I guess. Thanks to Martin Hone for the link.     

Lancaster – Spitfire Formation

Here’s a view you don’t get very often… a pilot’s eye view from the Lancaster in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee flypast. Some really great footage! Thanks to Dave Tonks for the video     

RV7 – Spitfire Dogfight

Getting a bit wild in the sky over the Lockyer Valley lately… see what I mean:     

Night Approach to LAX

Here’s a view that us ultralight pilots never get to see … unless we also fly for one of the heavies. Neat. Enjoy!     

Solve Jabiru hard starting issues

Sometimes have trouble starting your Jabiru? Many do. This may be the solution you’re looking for. Very impressive!

DIY UAV’s

Martin sent me this link about a site devoted to amateur built UAV drones. Seemed to think a homemade cruise missile wouldn’t be far behind. Here’s the Link I recall a Kiwi put up a site called “How to build a cruise missile for under $5000″ a few years back. Site disappeared very quickly, too. […]

Birdman Jeb Corliss – Ouch!

Hi All, No doubt you remember my recent post about an Australian getting killed in NZ recently while doing a “wing suit” jump. And you’ve no doubt said to yourself more than once that it’s only a matter of time before someone gets killed doing this. I won’t say any more … just watch this […]
