(Updated 5 Vids Up) Video's from Weldon Friday 10/10/08 High Def!


This is just 1 video of probably 8-10 that im gonna be posting... had some iMac issues so i only got 1 done so far.... quick, dirty and to the point flying video's.

This one is of Jason Lilly flying his Thundertaker early in the day to a top speed of 304mph and then coming in close to say hello

NEW VERSION OF JASON..... If you want to see it HD you have to open the new window and make sure you click "Turn HD on"... if you want to download the FULL resolution version you have to join Vimeo (Free and easy) and on the lower right corner you can download the video (Hint Hint, Daboz)

That last lap was close! Is it just me, or do the thundertakers have a distinct noise? Sounds like "tearing paper"

They don't call it the Thundertaker for nothing.

There isn't enough quality in the sound to really portray what it sounds like when you are standing there. The only thing I can equate the sound too is if you were to try and shake sand off a bed sheet in the wind with a good snap at the end. It literally sounds like it is tearing the air apart as it goes throught the layer. The other thing that video just can't relate is that the sound is 20-30 yards behind the plane as you watch it do the groove. Truly an amazing thing to witness those speeds in person finally. The Kevlar vest and helmet wouldn't help! There is a nice sized granite boulders that should do the trick!

Hey, Thanks for the great time....That was great video and that was just one instance of an unbelievable day.

BWT...If anyone finds a JW60 Blue tops, Yellow Bottoms and a dayglo fuse...otherwise completely crappy looking, let me know. I lost it at Weldon on Sat on the frontside. Took my eyes off and it was gone....

Thanks
