A new tv show on Discovery channel starts Jan. 5. I wonder how bad they'll screw this show up?

Saw it fly in Toronto. If I hadn't seen it I wouldn't have believed it.

Remarkable aeroplane.

I saw it here at the Alliance Air Show this fall. Stunning display! Kind of made the Blue Angels look pretty lame.
