Someone in a biplane put on quite an aerobatics show just now over the northwest part of the lake, roughly centered over Scrushy's old place. Don't know who the pilot was but he/she has amazing skills. Whoever you are, thanks for the show!
Hard to judge but seemed there was plenty air underneath to get out of any tight spaces he might have found himself in. One to three thousand feet would be my guess.
i once worked with a gent who flew in WW II, first for the RAF, then Army Air Corps after the US joined the fray. He had some interesting tales but once told me "the two most useless things to a pilot are the air above him and runway behind him".
IF it was a yellow plane it sounds like the same one I watched for years growing up on that side of the lake. Pilot definitely had skills. There were actually two different ones back then. One was a biplane and the other had the wings over the top of the fuselage which as I understand it is better suited to acrobatics. Both were amazing and there were a few days when both would be up at the same time. Now days I get a flyby from Shortbus Aviation every now and then but he doesn't do acrobatics.
Close Hodja.. This old AF pilot recalls it as 'altitude above you, runway behind you and a navigator in the back seat.' Sorry navs, just what i recall.. This old Buff pilot would have long lost without y'all.. tb
LOL on the navigtor. When I was graduating from college back in the early 80's I approached the Navy and Air Force because I wanted to fly but because of my eyesight the best I could get was with the Navy as a REO. No interest in sitting in the backseat with no ability to do anything if the guy up front crapped out except pull the handle. Went to grad school instead.
