Default Formation flight - AirShow display practice

As formation flight team we started training in 2014, in a couple of weeks we'll have our first official presence in a local Air Show. This is the 'homebuilt' video that shows last practice flight.

ps: we are flying in full accordance with the tower with our ATZ free of other traffic.

I like it. The corkscrew was impressive. I didn't know an RV could do that.

Great video and action, Luca. Maybe you can teach Mike Elliott a few maneuvers. The only "corkscrew" maneuver he is good at now is from a bottle of good Italian wine.
