I once did a downwind low and over pass in a DC-3 at Duxford and at the end of the runway pulled up into a hammerhead, did the deed, dropped the gear and greased it for the second finest landing I’ve ever done.
I am nothing. I am not worthy to polish this man’s shoes.
You want to talk pure flying? You want to talk what it is to be a pilot who feels the wind and judges his path by trained instinct and minute feelings unknown to the ordinary ground-bound human?
This man is insane – but he is the best pure pilot I’ve ever seen….
