Now that is a man who could fly!

Cheers for the ace video
thats gone into my files for certain.

Good video with a great commentary from the man himself - Just see how low he gets that plane with no power...awesome stuff.

If I remember, that is the name of his demonstration. The last I heard he couldn’t get his medical(Hes 84, it was going to happen sooner or later) and is now stuck on the ground.

I saw him fly, shook his hand, and got his book autographed by him at Oshkosh a few years back. That’s a good place to run into people like Hoover, Yeager, and Bud Anderson.

i did some searching on the internet. his medical was denied in 93 but he got it back 2 years later. that is all that was said. i saw him perform in 96 at reno and he was 74 then

He flew at Oshkosh (98-01? not sure the year) when I saw him, I haven’t seen him fly in a few years so I assumed it was revoked again, Just looked he was flying as of 2005.sorry for the mix up
By my spelling I would say its time to hit the hay
