C'est impressionnant.

Some of Young Bill's images of the event are amazing, too...like this one!
Bill Phillips: This bloke's skill was amazing Ray

Yes, it is amazing. How does he ever do that? Nicely captured, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I have no idea Beth. While it was like this it was also rotating through 360 degrees. He is one of the top stunt fliers in the world
Heavens ! Great catch Bill !
Bill Phillips: This bloke could make that plane do just about anything Frank!
Wow - this looks like it might not make it!
Bill Phillips: The plane was not only virtually vertical but was rotating through 360 degrees. This bloke, I was told, is one of the top stunt fliers in the world and he has had this plane for quite a number of years and has never crashed it!

oh, my it appears to be crashing
Bill Phillips: This bloke has had this plane for several years and never crashed it Sherri. Not only was it vertical but it was rotating through 360 degrees!
Boys and their BIG toys. WOW. I actually have a friend in America who belongs to such a club, Bill, and he's almost 80. smile
Bill Phillips: It is a very popular pastime and not difficult to see why

This is verging on madness!

Man alive, this IS toys for boys...Great catch here. How many were there in total?? and where was the show.
Bill Phillips: It was at Cosford. There must have been over 100 aircraft there and the number was less than usual as there was another show on at the same time somewhere else. Most of the planes were the smaller ones but on the other hand they did also have a Vulcan bomber!

I think this guy is overdoing the showing off.
Bill Phillips: He is one of the top stunt fliers in the world comrade. He has never crashed this plane

This is too crazy - and amazing indeed!
Bill Phillips: I couldn't believe my eyes Philine

Vertical take off?
Bill Phillips: No. But the bloke could make it do what looked impossible

This is very special flying. To do something like this, with such an expensive toy ...
Bill Phillips: and he has never crashed it!
This must have been a very exciting sight to see. I guess the other guy has the dayglo jacket on in case he has to do an emergency pickup if the plane crashes.
Bill Phillips: It was very impressive Brian. I guess the hi viz is all part of the risk assessment package.
That seems too close for comfort.
Bill Phillips: There are very strict rules about how close to the crowd they can get. how close the bloke controlling it gets is, I guess, up to him or her
Stomach churning stuff
Bill Phillips: I was very impressed Martin. I had no idea how good model aircraft flying could be

Very impressive. I specially like the model aircraft in the background.
Bill Phillips: They are the next but one class up in size. 1:1
this has a big WOW factor to it Bill... and you said to Elizabeth... this bloke that flies it has to be the best in the word....petersmile
Bill Phillips: He is either the European champion or possibly the world champion. whatever anyone better than him would be worth watching!
Amazing is the word!!! I'm very surprised to see what they can do.........a great pic, Bill smile
Bill Phillips: I had no idea. The friend I went with used to fly models and I think he was worried I might be bored!
It's some size model, Bill. Very impressive.
Bill Phillips: Apparently there is another class that is even bigger!
