God damn their jets are clean. I had a HD version that I d/l a while back, just trying to remember where I got it. I'll send you the link if I find it.

BTW, that video in the last post they were talking about watches. All fighter pilots that graduate 410 have the chance to buy a special edition Swiss "Canadian Hornet pilot" watch. I saw one in person and it looked sick - for a $5k watch. I guess those dudes can afford one with their 6 figure salary.

Ya, i'm going through it stupid fast. Handed in my application on January 4th. If I do good/pass this aircrew stuff then I was told I get put a waiting list and am chosen from there. My other friend was under the impression from his bookings person that basically if you make it to aircrew then you're in. We shall see!

And Belka +1 on a link that'd be wicked.

I'm calling my recruiting center tomorrow. This honestly infuriates me a little because I've been ready to go on a days notice for many months now. Even if there's a line for course I want to do OJT @ Cold Lake so I've been wanting to go ASAP.

Russian Su-35UB flying without canopy cover.

The pilots claimed that they stick their hands out of the canopy at Mach.2.

Not a chance, it would rip their arms off. I doubt the ability to fly that fast without the canopy to begin with. I didn't think there was a fighter in service capable of Mach 2 since the F104, I had to look it up to confirm but the SU-35 does in fact do it

I've stuck my hand out of the window at 200+ km/h... And it still threw my arm back.

I've heard Mach 2.5 and they say that on a lot of websites but I don't believe that at all out of that aircraft. And if it does do that it's at very high altitude like 40,000ft+ which a fighter will almost never go unless in transit. But honestly you'd have to ask a pilot who won't give you any BS, publicly released vs real-world stats aren't always the same.

The F104 could do over Mach 2, lightly armed, at sea level. Very different story

Noob question - why does altitude have an impact on top speed? What's so special about "sea level"? I'm sure it has something to do with the atmosphere though...

Atmospheric pressure. The air is thinner meaning less resistance and easier to push through. At sea level the air is as dense as it can possibly be.

For the history buffs, the F104 is the jet that almost killed Chuck Yeager. He was pushing for a new altitude record and stalled it. From his biography:

"On December 10, 1963, while testing an NF-104A rocket-augmented aerospace trainer, he narrowly escaped death when his aircraft went out of control at 108,700 feet (nearly 21 miles up) and crashed. He parachuted to safety at 8,500 feet after vainly battling to gain control of the powerless, rapidly falling craft. In this incident he became the first pilot to make an emergency ejection in the full pressure suit needed for high altitude flights."



And here's one of ours that was based out of Baden-Soellingen, Germany during the 70's and 80's.

Must be hard to time a fly-by right after the anthem. It's not like you're a car stopped at a light, nor do you have a clearly defined path (like a road) of where to fly!

Snowbirds were about a minute late this year. In Calgary last year they were bang on the money. And last year one of the CF-18's was probably 70ft lower and pulled a full 7G to the right as he crossed the far end of the stadium, full burner, at dusk. It looked like the jet slid out of the stadium, the crowd went nuts.

They manage to do it somehow...

I remember when I was watching the funeral procession for Smoky Smith, when the Regiment crested Burrard Street Bridge - the group of CF-18's did the fly-by with the missing man formation. Absolutely amazing.
