Default Fiberclassics Mustang - right into the tarmac - movie

Check this:

crash

The reason for that spectacular crash were reversed acting aileron servos. It was the maiden flight of that wonderful fiberclassics Mustang. My swiss friend (the owner) was a little bit nervous and so he forgot half of the preflight checks. Hence he did not see the wrong working ailerons.

The result is the loss of a wonderful Mustang and a lot of money. The original Mustang TEMPTATION also crashed in switzerland a few years ago with the famous aerobatic pilot Christian Schweitzer and his son at the controls. No one survived.

I couldn't quite bring to words exactly how I was feeling when I watched it too but V6goose sums it up...

I too am very sorry for the loss of his warbird.

Dayam, that sucks. It looked and sounded like a sweet plane.

Betcha your friend makes full pre-flight checks a religion now.

Sorry 'bout the crash. Judging by the guy's tabletop radio, I'm sure he'll be back soon.

I remember that I used to think....'Man, what idiots, not checking their deflections.....', but then the other day I was very nervous about test flying an expensive plane, and completely forgot about it. It was only after I landed (in one peice luckily) that I realised my stilly mistake....Could happen to anyone, sorry it was such a nice bird....

Does anyone still have the file around from the video? When I click on the above link, I get the German equivalent of 404 Not Found.

Thanks,

Default bandwidth exceeded

Most likely cause here is that the account bandwidth limit has been exceeded. It will probably be back at the beginning of the month.

I've got some emails from several people concerning that crash video. This is my first day in the office so I had no chance to answer the emails.
All I know is that the video is withdrawn form the server because of space and traffic problems. Maybe you contact Donimic Jahraus directly by email under dominic@jahraus.de But the video is pretty large.
