    Default Red Bull Air Race Video

    Am I just out of it? I've never seen this "sport" before and I am absolutely AMAZED.....made me nauseated just thinking about that ride .....not to mention the fact that these planes tend to fall apart a bit under the stress YIKES!

    That's just freakin' insane. I was on an acrobatic glider ride a few weeks ago and did some pretty nasty loops that made me sick to my stomach - I can't imagine doing that same thing and pulling those G's. Wow!
    Nothing to see here.

    I always start doing the guitar riff to Panama every single time I hear a prop plane. Just did it again watching this. Out.

    it is infact entirely possible, i have seen footage of an isreali F-15 that lost a wing and not only managed to land safley but maintained stable flight, it has something to do with overal lift which means the lift does not just come from the wing but the entire aircraft, also the power to weight ratio comes into play, that stunt plane also benifited from the right wing coming off as the torque from the prop would have made it easier to control, if it had been the left wing then it would have spun out and the pilot would not have has a chance.


    as for those planes falling apart with a little stress, most of them are rated for +15g manouvres which is more than a human can stand, they are infact VERY tough....usually.

    The Red Bull air races are nothing short of spectacular. Been following this for awhile. They go all over the globe performing too. The best one that I saw was in Monument Valley here in the US. Cool stuff!

    I remember seeing that show on History Channel!..they had footage of the mangled plane..it was an israeli pilot...I also remember him saying the F-15 is the only plane built to the standards to withstand that, but if he had been able to see the damage he would have ejected as planes cannot be flown with just one wing...(but somehow he did it)


    I don't believe it's real for one very good reason....the pilot is supposed to be named James Anderson or Andersson and there are only about a dozen of these Red Bull pilots and NONE of them are named Anderson


    I think its a very good video along the lines of the batgirl catching a fly ball in the warning track (if you remember that viral video)

    its the only jet that could possibly do that maybe, as for others not being able to do it, well they'd have to find a VERY brave test pilot indeed to try. jets on the whole tend to be more frgile than piston aircraft due to the fine tolerences within the engines (military jets anyway) and the fact that they are designed to be unstable in flight, the computers in modern warplanes are what allow them to fly, the instability then makes them more manouverable(sp) when they need to be (if the computer in the F-117 failed and there were no backups it would fall like a stone).
    i think chefs other video proved that this video could possibly be a fake (although the colours are different) but it does prove that in theory it is possible. and finaly the aircraft is not in redbull air race livery so there could be confusion or the person who posted the video could have mistakenly written that instead of aerobatic aircraft...or whatever.

    man...that's crazy...i can't imagine riding in a plane doing stuff like that. I'm not the biggest fan of flying to begin with...i guess if I survived it would be the coolest thing ever!
