  • Red Bull Air Race

    Hulu.com has just posted a ton of videos from the Red Bull Air Race World Series, and they are amazing :icon_eek:

    It is guys flying flat out in stripped down back to basics airplanes and enduring up to 9g's through most of it. They have 20 Episodes in all, from 3 different seasons. I watched the San Diego 2008 race 1st, and was hooked. Blows my mind that just like in f1 and other racing, the winners and losers are decided by fractions of a sec!!!!!! :icon_eek::icon_eek:

    Check it out:

    Here are some random pics I found searching google:

      I had a ticket to see them last year but couldn't go. Shame they aren't coming back to London this summer.
      Peter Besenyei is my favourite pilot. Always, humble and professional. Which I can't say for other pilots.

        Well, the aircraft are not really 'back to basics.' They might look simple if you just look at them, but when you see the guts of them, they are very complex aircraft. Very few aircraft can preform those maneuvers without falling apart

          By basic, I mean it has a stick and rudder peddles, not tons of advanced flight controls and autopilot.
