Shark Attacks My Plane [Video]

We have a new problem at our field - Sharks!

Shark Attack Mid Air! (1 min 56 sec)

We were actually trying to get some formation flying with the shark, so we have in air footage as well as from the ground. I was flying the Phase3 Fantom in a slow pass and the shark came screaming up behind me. I was supposed to pull up and do a 45 deg climb with him behind me, but instead the shark got a foamy sandwich.

This is on my friends youtube channel so don't forget to Like, Subscribe, and click the ads or something and maybe we can wreck some more planes

I laughed so much.

Maybe we can make "Sharknado 2 - Revenge of the Snake"

(I should explain that I named the Phase3 Fantom "The Snake". When I bought it used it had a bad snake paint job, which I covered with my Russian cammo, the snake name stuck to it, but in Russian, so now it's 'Zmeya'. Anyway, long trip to the well for that joke...)
