Default F-16 low pass

Here is one of my low passes with my F-16.Out of a dive at about 100+ mph, it slid for at least 10 ft and kept going.

No prop strike,Have you ever noticed how long a plane last when you dont care about it any more.I have a newer one on the table almost done.I have been having so much fun with it.It just wont die.The sound it made as it slid across the ground,the ground should have sucked it in but it just took right off again and I finished the flight.

Ok, so with the gear up, there is at least clearance for an 11" diameter prop while in level flight [&:]


You are one crazy SOB

yeah, it is amazing how things tend to last when you are least concerned with them.

Nice shot ....... and good show!
