I was at Longleat this summer.
Great day.
Lots of sun.
Lots of beer.
Lots of birds!!!!



Was actually more impressed by the guys (and girl) doing the aerobatics beforehand. Was also doing far far far too much babe-watching in the crowd.

ROFL Shades and the problem was?....lol

Mike Mangold is incredible to watch and as all true professionals, makes what their doing look easy. Some of the 'G's' produced in those stunts approach the 9 g mark and somehow me thinking of my own weight x 9 gives you a perspective of what those pilots deal with.

Great racing with most of the pilots using the 'Extra 300S', but Mangold uses the "Zivko Edge 540" and is the champion of most if not all races. That makes you wonder why he's the only one?

Anyhow, here are some links...
