No luck left used it all up....Amazing
That is incredible, thanks for sharing Lance
I wonder if he's still keen on flying
¡No se creo!
CC, Image editing OK.
There is no way that could be real.
I realise that a stunt plne has huge aileron surfaces, but if the wing came off in flight, regardless of how good the pilot is, the plane would roll uncontrollably.
I've seen similar things happen to R/C models, and they were just uncontrollable by even the best pilots.
Another thing, the wing was not that loaded when it fell off, and the wings on these high performance aerobatic planes can take more G's than a pilot can.
All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.
I dont know , He was doing a twisty thingy going up , Maybe someone forgot to tighten the wing bolts It was rolling as well Benny , Another more Ass than class manourve I reckon , Lucky boy
These aircraft generate sufficient thrust to hang by the prop instead of stalling at the top of a climb.
Amazing combination of luck and skill to get it all together so close to the ground.
That one has been around for a while. Lots of forums have pulled it apart.
Nikkor 70-200/2.8 VRII, 85/1.4G, 70-300VR
Sigmas 50/1.4EX, 17-50/2.8, 50-500 Bigma
Lotsa other bits.
Go on, I bet he can't do it with NO wings

whoa......... Just sent this to my two cousins who are pilots.....
It is a fake. There's info about it at snopes, but there's a better expose of it elsewhere, but just have to find it.
Here's the snopes info about it:
Here's an expose video that shows the paint trim changing through the video, the length of nose of the plane changing, the angle of the wheel covers changing, and the shadows being wrong.
Oh, and my own observation, pilot in first flyby has white helmet on, then has no helmet on at the end, nor is there any helmet visible in the pre landing footage either.
