Musings about life through the eyes of an old helicopter pilot.

This is "Jack Link's Beef Jerky's" "Screaming Sasquatch" It performed yesterday at Pensacola Naval Air Station's "Blue Angels" homecoming. And it did something I have NEVER seen an airplane do- He climbed vertically and "hovered" the airplane at about 2000' AGL. Then, from that point, he added power and ACCELERATED VERTICALLY! (Watch at just after the 8:00 point in the video.) A 1920's airplane with added modern-day technology. Amazing.
