What exactly was the weird sound during the snaps? Was it airflow doing that? Thanks for the vid!!

Yes. Airflow around the canopy most likely.

Also, the flying wires make weird sounds. I use to fly a 220 Stearman and it really made very noticeable sounds from the wires. A Pitts snaps so fast you don't get the same sounds and size does matter.

Reason I say airflow around the canopy is I used to get much the same sounds flying the Sukhoi. There aren't any flying wires on that beast..

The wires on the Model 12 now.. those flat SCREAM at high speeds.. LOL. Sounds like a dive bomber coming at you!

I'm pretty sure the whistle during snaps is coming from the pop out air vents below the canopy. They can be closed and will then pop out during snaps.

Do they pop out due to g-forces I assume? Kinda interesting!
