Good old martin baker, the pilot got out safely.

I'll be at the show Sunday and shall post photos as per usual (in the f-16 photography section) as there are a number of Vipers on static and there is the Dutch display at the show.

The more interesting flying participants in the 8 hour display:

Mig-29OVT - Mig
MV-22B - USMC
Typhoon - Spain
Typhoon - RAF
M346 - Italy
F-15C - USAF
F-18C - Swiss
F-18F - USN
PC-21 - Pilatus
Mi-24 - Czech
Grippen - Sweden
L-159 - Czech
KDC-10 - AirTanker.

I'll be there to for both days. The C-130B from the PAF is my prize. The paint scheme they've applied is well worth the entry ticket alone.

The Mig-29OVT is my target... anyone ever seen an aircraft do a cartwheel, not just one but 3 in a row?
That and the Spanish Typhoon.

Although the F-18F display looks mighty impressive even if the aircraft is a boring grey :)

The Super Bug demo is pretty d@mn cool. Square loop...b*tchin!

Glad to hear the driver got out of the Harrier. The Brits are like our Marines...when something goes wrong in the Harrier, they don't Foxtrot with it for very long. You can't really hassle with a Harrier like you can with an Eagle or a Hornet. In cases like this, it's not worth it. Just pull the handles and get out.

Beers and MiGs were made to be pounded!
