Always sad to lose one of the pilots. I went on Sunday and there was not much flying and no performances. That is the airport where my son made his first solo flight so we have been there a bunch of times.

It's picky - but 'stunt' is not the term I like to see used when 'aerobatics' is to the fore!

I can to 'stunts' - this poor fellow was a highly skilled pilot - not the same

I simply quoted the title of the news article. And you know as well as anyone that that term has been used quite a lot in the past..... It's even a class in C/L flying.

I know - hence the popcorn

I'm not taking a 'pop' at you - just the dumbed down media hack who penned the strap!
