Some nice research there. So, "Crank" was at the 409 Sqn in the series (featured briefly at the end of Ep. 8 ), not 410 Sqn? Typo. He was definitely with 410 Sqn. You can see the demo jet on the ramp during some of the show. http://www.aero-cafe.com/real_aviation/otis/airshow2007/web/Military%20Dem...

Got done watching it today. Thought the name "Jobin" sounded familiar so went back through my airshow pics. Sure enough, found it was his jet at the Quebec show I went to in '08, from the squadron at Bagotville. http://img691.imageshack.us/img691/1366/jobin.jpg Yanick "Crank" Gregoire (one of the in...

Looks like #3 finally figured things out! :wink: Good to see some slight wing overlap on other maneuvers too.

No problem. As long as you have 4 12v Rails at 30Amps, you would be ok. This Antec is only 750Watts yet has 4x12v Rails at 40Amps. Your power bill will be smaller as well. :wink:

Looks like this was Chris Stricklin's aircraft judging by the fact it's coming out of Mountain Home.

Might be able to save some $$$ and get a lower Wattage PSU. No need for anything over 750Watts these days unless you're running 3 cards. Most PSUs in that range have adequate amperage on their 12v rails.

I'd really suggest using a full size ATX case. I know even with my mid size ATX case the video cards are almost long enough to hit the drive bays. I know for a fact that most of the video cards now are longer, thus you might have an issue, not to mention the cramped wiring which doesn't allow for go...

Chuck Norris has never made a 3-wire trap, because Chuck Norris doesn't need a tailhook.

Trust me, it's a story much better told in person over a few cold ones. You can't swear in a book! :D

Gonna put this at either '87 or '88. Good to find video of the Diamond Dirty Roll!

If anyone gets to ever meet Gil Rud (Boss from '86-88 ), ask him the story about the inception of the Dirty Loop. It's quite entertaining!

What is the Blues' target pitch angle for roll movement and how high AGL is the Diamond Roll's apex? No doubt the Blues show is slower (by design), but it's an interesting topic of discussion. Roll starts at 1500ft AGL, apex at 3500ft AGL. Pitch is usually ~20-25 degrees at the start. Fun fact, the...
