Shameless theft from EU forums.  The Spit driver really put it on the deck.

Well, not exactly a Spit nor Mustang, but the coolest ever trick done in an airplane:

I'm reminded of this classic: (contains brown pants & expletives)

At least the guy with the camera in this new one has the bridge structure to protect a bit from those props I guess.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

Thank you crzyhawk! 

The first two sounded excellent in turned-up headphones but that Spit at the end really sounded the business without being overt.  Typically British.

And dog bless Breitling, for sure.  Their aerobatic team rocks.

In the comments the camera man says the spitfire run was the best shot he took in his entire career.

 

I agree.


Fair warning. My success rate at speculative guesswork is on par with my WinRate. Hit or Miss.
 I start on the right track and then sometimes make a weird left turn and get lost in the weeds ...

The Corsair sounded like a sewing machine, in comparison to the Merlins
