Wow. Now that's what I'm talking about. Turn and burn.

When I was a kid, I remember seeing some outrageous performances at AFB open house shows. I remember one thunderous F-15 demo. Things I haven't seen in a while like this guy is doing here.

I just went to the airshow in Sacramento this weekend and they had a pilot doing a demonstration in a super hornet, he did many of the same maneuvers including the pirouette like that one did. It is definitely impressive to see it as the first thing I thought of was that jets aren't suppose to do that.

We also had Rob Holland do his aerobatics in his MXS-RH, and that was another incredible performance. His plane is rated for +/- 16 G's and I'm pretty sure he uses every single one of them, if I didn't know any better I would have thought it was a 3D plane.

Rob is the best airshow pilot in the business right now.
