I thought so too, but the airplane came with it, so I used it.

It cam in handy traversing Travis AFB's airspace on dark nights, looking out for C5s doing combat approaches with no lights on. They were kinda hard to see...

This is a link to the wingwalker biplane crash in Ohio on Saturday.

The airplane is inverted and then makes a sudden move and dives into the ground. Did something break? Did it stall? Is that abrupt movement something you see in a stall?

Odd the roll was not completed. I don't know the routine, however switching direction is bad.

I wonder if the wing walker grabbed or touched the lower wing aileron and rolled the plane in the wrong direction

1) Didn't she climb over the front of the wing? 2) She would know better than to do that.

That video makes me feel sick. Ugh. RIP.

When I was a kid, I went up with my granddad in his aeronca. we had been doing some positive G aerobatics for about 15 mins. then he started a slow roll, when we got inverted he pushed on the stick and I slipped in my harness. The first thing I grabbed was the stick..... I can imagine my little stick grab would have looked much like this if we had been at 500 rather than 5,000.

Not much of a mystery there - you can see it beginning to unfold very shortly after the roll to inverted maneuver is started.
Takes proper airspeed plus lots of power to do that without any loss of altitude. Short on either and fate is sealed -- with altitude one can recover to try again. Down there, no way out - disaster.
Stall broke to her side - she would have been disrupting the airflow over the wing. Too low, too slow, stall, and the door slams shut.

That's what I see. Hard on the psyche to see that with our show this coming weekend.

I'm not sure what this means, if anything, but the digital video and the on-line distribution of that air show accident has resulted in a larger audience than their act ever has, or ever will - and, especially tragically, for what they'll be known for. I don't go to airshows to see accidents, they are a much more experiential environment than video can convey. Instead, and it is indeed a curious perversion of modern media, through the power of digital replication, millions can see, and may only see, what is arguably the worst thing imaginable from an airshow. Being there, preferably without an accident, is what its supposed to be about. I'm not saying I don't find this, or other troubling video's not to be useful, but its more of a comment about how immensely connected we are all now, although it seems so often in the weakest, most facile of ways.

You've been smoking pot, haven't you?

OK. v 2.0 >> Sad video. Pity more people will see this on-line, and only for the crash, than ever will, or would have, seen them perform at an airshow.

(Forget the ethereal attempt at trying to explain our collective on-line addictions are making us voyeurs and not participants).

Better? No bongs or beer were lifted in either of these posts.

I was at the Paris Airshow last saturday at Le Bourget airport and saw the Sukhoi Su-35 in action. Impressive performance (and noise)

Not my video. I still have to process some 2300 pictures I took that day.

The SU-35S appears to be the premier performer in the line-up of advanced fighters these days. Short of an F-22. But there aren't enough F-22s.
