Yep. It's awesome. I've had it on my computer for a long time and I show it to anyone who will watch.
How did you link a youtube video to here?

That move at about 2:05 is about the most violent thing I have ever seen a full scale pull off.
Awesome!!

Re: Cool Sean Tucker vid

Dont know if you guys heard about this, earlier this year i think, Sean Tucker was practicing for a show here in Louisiana. He was around Cashada somewhere when something mechanical broke. I cant remember exactly what it was, but i think it was something with the linkage to the rudder. He got the plane up to a pretty high altitude, away from any population and bailed out. He was hung up in the tail section for a few seconds. He broke free and parachuted to safety while the plane went down in a field.

No one was hurt, but man, i cant imagine what was going through his head. Probably just another day at the office for Mr. Tucker though.

Dude is bad ass

As I understand it, the entire stick came off in his hand- broke off down near the base of the stick. He flew the airplane to altitude using the rudder and elevator trim. When it became clear he wouldn't be able to land it, he bailed out. Pretty amazing job from one of the best pilots on the planet...

Sad that the plane gone, but great he lived. That plane had a crazy amount of power. Makes me want to finish my GS Christen Eagle II..

Awesome!!

I've seen it so much I knew EXACTLY what you were refering to before I watched it again. That tumble is amazing, especially from that camera angle!

That move from 2:05 to 2:10 or so almost looked fast forwarded and fake, but it isnt.. That was just violent at Jaybird says... hurts me watching it.
