Screaming Sasquatch!

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.

(Another good video about the airplane here.)

Amazing! The P Factor with that big radial must be strong. Wonder if the jet adds or cancels it out.

I'll be watching that video in short time. That would be absolutely incredible to see. However, one very important point:

1. It's GREAT to see you back in blogging!

Very impressive aircraft!! Thanks for sharing that...I don't follow the airshow circuit much anymore and have never seen that plane. It reminds me of those Baesler DC-3 conversions. The right mix of old and new technology is sometimes wonderful.
