Thread: Another aviation record falls

  1. #1

    Default Another aviation record falls

    This is a kinda weird one. Stunt pilot Dario Costa flew his plane 1730m through a couple of tunnels. (video in the bottom half of the page)

    Man, that stunt has NO margin for error.
    Well done, and you're a loon for trying it.

    Hence a SMALL plane, more room for error. BD-5A only has a 14.5' span, so would be a challenge but should fit in a 25' tunnel just fine as long as there aren't any trains to dodge... or since the BD-5 can fly as slow as 55mph, just coast in one train's slipstream and hope there's no stop before the exit.

    I laugh in the face of danger - then I hide until it goes away!
