You know what I think that could be possible:

No fuel in wing: Competition aerobatic aircraft rarely do weight outboard slows down roll rate.

Full span ailerons could counter the loss of a wing with heavy rudder use to aid with secondary effects.

Power to weight ratios for competition aerobatics aircraft are better that 1:1 in modern types so you can indeed hang it on the prop and then use controls plus gyroscopic effects to flick the aircraft about. In this case to an exceptionally skilfull landing.

I don't think it was a model in shot either as the prop disc is too big (models have high reving engines and small diameter blades real aircraft use lower reving higher torque engines with bigger blade radii.

Top clip, Top Gun come to think of it :shock: + way 8)
A NOHD will be published for the DS in due course, till then wear sunnies.

I agree Miles. I watched a documentary on those guys who fly the RedBull Air Races and the planes are super light. The plane is assembled and taken apart between races for shipping. So the wings naturally detach. Those engines are super powerful compared to the weight of the body. And the pilots, well you know the skill it takes to trick fly a kite, yeah those guys are like that with their airplanes. Top of their game, so it'll take little effort for them to fly it on it's side without a wing. You only have to do a circuit with them with the in flight camera to know how they can handle the plane. I'd say that clip was plausible and good for him for setting the plane down like that. Avoiding an expensive repair bill, he was probably up in the air the next day. Great vid thanks.

I love Frank Zappa. :D I think his music is just stunning, and as an intellectual, he could more than hold his own. I still think 'kill your television' is one of the best combination of three words created in the US.

Check THIS! :cool:

He even predicts the coming of the fascist theocracy we now have!! Great stuff. I just hope all the Zappa fans check this thread. I have never enjoyed a video so much in a long time. Wow. Blown out of the water. What he would say today!?

Very impressed with the result, but I do feel the need to ask you how the hell do you come across these video clips? :?

Just watched this one and was curious to see what others thought so googled it.
There are some side by side comparisons that demonstrate pretty convincingly that the a/c seen at the beginning is not the one seen at the end.

Budget cuts meant the orchestra were having their lights turned off whilst still practising.They asked for a solution to not being able to read music in the dark and someone suggested "have you tried carrots?"
