That is the legendary Jurgis Kairys form Lithuania-the best full scale freestyle pilot in the world. I have a photo of him doing a high alpha inverted pass inches above a lake. This guy must have balls the size of grapefruits! I understand that at one time he was a top test pilot for the Sukhoi design bureau.

Thanks for the followup. I had no idea where this came from or who it was!

FYI - the bridge video is just a short clip of that one bridge. He flew under all the bridge along that river in Vilnius, of which there were several (I want to say 13 but I can't quite remember). Supposedly there was a ton of video shot of the event but I've only ever seen still photos and that one clip

Guys, this isn't really RC-related, so I'm going to be closing it. It is a pretty amazing bit of flying though, isn't it?

If any of you are interested, this got me to start an RC video thread. I'd love to see some contributions!
