OK. I got caught up on my chores and was bored, so I thought I'd post another video. This one is really about a math error. Great big OOPPPS!

I saw the pilot punch out and the chute deploy, but did he make it :?: :?

I understand he survived the ejection, but don't know well he did at the Colonel's office. :oops:

For those of us on dialup, how about a brief description of the 2 links.

Jet did a loop that ended too close to the ground. One video from the cockpit showing the pilot, other from the stands showing the aircraft.

The worst airplane crashes occur at ground level.

Harold:

Finally got to see the clips.. Man my puter is messed up..

That was a cool video, and the cockpit pics were really good. Got to see the canopy blow which was a rush..

The ground pics were pretty good too - it is amazing how fast a small mistake can turn into a major catastrophy. Sure hope the pilot was okay and no ground based injuries either.

Flying is a rush, but it is still intrinsically a very dangerous affair..

Thanks for the cool videos.

That happens to be a very popular mistake! As all of the training and safety folks have said over and over again. But sometimes even the best have their heads "up and locked". Thanks again for the vids.

Being on dial-up, I haven't seen the video, but from the comments I think I know what it is.

Interestingly, when I first learned to fly my instructor would set the altimeter to field elevation. Since northern Ohio is nearly as flat as Louisiana, the elevation of nearby fields wasn't enough different to matter. (~700 MSL) I always thought it was silly at best and dangerous at worst... but I always did aerobatics at reasonably safe altitudes. One exception was the great old Cubs (Piper) that could do a series of loops and gain altitude with each one.

George, it was a clip of a Thunderbird F-16 that took off, straight-up, split S'ed. Didn't have enough room out the bottom, so he ejected. I'm told he had no injuries.
It's always good during the rigors of aerobatics to know exactly how far away the earth is. I just set zero elevation when taxiing out. Just for VFR local manuevering though. 8)

The chance of survival is directly related to the angle of arrival! :lol:
