Not bad.

It is high enough to make the flyunder quite easy.

Will have to try it inverted next, but I am not sure I am ready for that ...

Cheers,

707 (2 hours of flight logged today... I should really calm down)

Looks great for BASE jumping off, I wonder how they built it with terrorism in mind, anyone know how structually capable a bridge like that would be in the even of someone doing something stupid such as a car bomb etc..
Its not the fall that kills u, its the sudden stop at the end..

I think terrorism is something of the 1980ies in France....
