That's impresive flying...borderline insane. And how bout those two brave souls on the runway....they should get some credit too.

thats the world record attempt lowest inverted. Ive seent he guy flying once before, and seeing him again next week. Its really awesome to watch. He's jsut got a new 560hp (i think) engine and new prop to hover and PULL OUT. he does harriers, rolling hairriers, and even walls, pulling 11-12g while talking through all the maneuver with no change in tone of voice. quite somthing to watch!

I've seen a picture of another guy going for the record.
He wasn't so lucky!
The photo shows the tail of the plane touch ground and the plane explodes!

I don't think the pilot made it!
He was inverted about 10' off the deck and the plane was in about 10 pieces before it hit the ground

I'll see if I can find it?

I wonder who's crazier, the pilot or the guys holding the limbo bar!

Man that runway looks pretty similiar to the one at Oshkosh. The day I was there they had the Oracle doing the same thing. He did it three times one inverted, and the other two left and right knife egde.

I thought I saw a an electric arf of this airplane in an old thread. Anyone else see it and does anyone know where to get one if it exists. I work at a Honda dealership and a Honda plane would be really cool.

I'd think one of the various Sukhoi's avaialbe would fit the bill. But, likey it would have to be finished (paint etc) to look the full scale plane. At least I've never seen one.
