    What I want to do when I grow up...



    Fly upside down, close to the ground!! Woohoo!

    The lighting really sucked for shooting pictures at the airshow. We had a pretty solid overcast over the airport all weekend, even though just a few miles to the west the clouds broke up quite a bit (that's where we flew with Team Red).

    This is Greg Koontz, he does an amazing show in this Super Decathalon. A lot of inverted flying and negative G manuevers. This was his second try at cutting a ribbon, he was too low the first pass and went underneath it!

    Good eyes, good inner ear, good hand-eye coordination, and a pair of big brass ones to fly inverted underneath his target!

    Cool stuff. One of these days (when I'm rich and retired) I'm going to have to start going to Reno for the races, and Fayetteville for the airshows!

    Great catch my friend!
