Yak Attack at the Local Slope


Just when you think the Cold War is over, they come in over the Pacific.

Check the top video for a little airshow we got last weekend out in front of our slope. We all landed and watched with jaws on the ground.

Bummer Reed.. . After 2 attempts to view the video through both options on your site, its not playing for me. It seems to download data, but doesnt produce video on screen for me. Im running diags on my box now, however all appears to be normal on my end. Not being able to view it makes me want it that much more.....LOL.

I wonder if its the same Yak thats been flying over Fermin the last few weekends. Green one with the red insignia on the Vertical.

Anyone else having problems seeing the video?...........Hmmmmm?

Took forever to d/l but it worked fine once it did. Try saving to disk if it's not streaming for you.

These guys are based up here in the Bay Area so I doubt they were down there. But you never know.

Sorry about the vid trouble. Maybe try direct download later today and see if it's any better. Anyone else having trouble?
