  3. Ouch.
  4. Ouch for sure! But those were way more spectacular crashes than the 2015 shootout where the only crashes I saw were when Kim pushed it to the absolute limit until he crashed and the fuselage break during a benign pull out of a loop type maneuver from the Frenchman.

    The wife and I got to go and see some great pilots at our first TAS, but there were lots of broken planes! It hurt every time one hit the ground!
  6. So Kim hit the ground twice ouch .

    Thanks Rusty! I didn't realize I got it until after we got home, lol. Unfortunately, we only got to be there on Saturday. We saw most of the freestyle that day.
  10. Just looking through the Freestyle pilots list I believe the pilot is Miguel Alcala from Mexico .
    Unfortunate bobble to touch the tail to the ground .On friday I saw Kim do that slow rollers over the banners a scraped the right wing tip off. It was amazing to watch Matt Stringer ,Bruno Macedo ,Santiago Perez all work together and fix that plane so Kim and Santiago fly it for threat of the freestyle rounds .
    That same day Santiago had his plane go straight into the ground , its on the video crash real . It looked like when he di his roll something struck the canopy and he lose complete control of his plane , that crash was a really shame .

    I really enjoyed meeting and learning from the best pilots in North America great great memories .
