was around 8-9 minutes... with 2 barrel rolls Smile

not commercially available yet... but who would have thought that jet-skis could be a commercial product 40 years ago...

maybe your kids will go to school with jetwings Wink

the exit of the barrel rolls are not very clean.. but you have to keep some progression margin Tongue

had a drink yesterday evening with Yves again. He is everywhere. ABC, CNN, NBC etc etc... The CNN video was interesting to see, you hear him flying, and you here the cameras shooting him in the flybys.
