Default EAA Argentina Video RV+Pitts+Super 18+Pilatus

New VIDEO of our presentation at the 33rd annual convention of the EAA Argentina (in General Rodriguez, Buenos Aires).
At the end of the video shows an incident with George Pitts, he exits the canopy closed for being bad ... fortunately that generates any problems and always have a spare on Sunday flew with a new one.
I hope you enjoy

Showed a buddy a Christen Eagle once - he was sat in the cockpit and I said the only handle we don't want to use is the red one .........

Yep - he pulled it.

Thankfully, someone was there to catch the canopy as it fell off.

Pheeeew

Jorge has a lot of experience, over 2000 hours of acrobatics in that Pitts is one of the best aerobatic pilots in South America, but sometimes things can happen ...

It is a picture of my photographer friend, Gabriel Luque, is one of the best in South America, he is currently in FIDAE, Chile (very important event) as official photographer.
