This video I think we’ve discussed before, but it’s fitting for this topic. Absolutely amazing. I love the sound as he goes by at 350kts.
It has been joked that it’s a shame the camera cuts out before showing the other half of his loop! :open_mouth: :laughing:

Incredible. I wonder what his climb rate was :smiley:

I like those. There’s another floating around of the Icelandair 757’s getting their winglets tested up in Kelowna.

That thing has some serious juice.

That was a 13 second 1500 ft roll!!!

Very impressive, but remember they were completely empty. That airport is where they get the winglets installed.
