Canadian Snowbirds Dedication Video (cockpit)

Thu Oct 26, 2006 2:45 am



Thought I would share this very well compiled video I found on youtube. It is a dedication to the fallen pilots of 431 Air Demonstration Squadron.

Enjoy

Good video.

Interesting that the pilots whom were called out in the video were all #2 and #8. Just coincedence or is there something about those positions that make them more dangerous?

I know number 8 is the opposing solo. So when they do their opposing aileron rolls it seems that 8 is not the luckiest number. However if I remember correctly the other snowbirds have perished while doing the opposing passes as well. The one where the lead solo dives right up in between all 5 aircraft. If you look at the diagram here, they are both on the outward tips for the left turns which gives them a bit more work.
