    Not much margin for error there if you have a momentary loss of engine power! Still, it's South Africa, so the water should be warm when you ditch.

    I think they did this on a lake, Rob.

    But this is the correct altitude for a short range torpedo run.

    Yes, I think the 4th photo makes that pretty conclusive.

    So, no sharks; the crocs had probably eaten them all anyway.

    certainly spectacular but it seems a bit 'too reckless.

    Yesterday I saw in the main railway station of Rome an acrobatic plane sposored by Hamilton showed, a famous watch company It could one of the plane of Nicolas Ivanov. I had no time to take a picture of it.

    Video of these wonderful madmen here -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PeeAI1wTMiA

    Also note: Only possible in a taildragger. Throttle adjustments cause the nose to tip; on a tricycle-gear, that means the nosegear digs in.

    I think my eyes are finally going weird, in each picture I look at, that plane appears to have more and more ghost images...
