Can I just put it out there and say that whoever was there witnessed the best C47 (TP or otherwise) display ever seen? Apart from the obvious skill of Scott, that machine still has a few tricks.


Agreed! =D>

This was an excellent display and told Scott so when I ran into him. "So you transport guys are flying like jet jocks hey?" Classic reply:"We just do it better!"

I was corrected a few years ago, so let me help you.

It's not a fuel dump. [-X

It's a fuel VENT. A dump is a purposeful act by the pilot, in Gripen's case it is an automated part of design.
