You folks are awsome.
Thanks for the pics and vids.
Did you notice all the moves are really safe. Nothing but a group talking to each other? I bet we could get some of our US chopper pilots to fly better.

The U.S. Army used to have a flying team called the "Silver eagles" if I remember correctly. I saw them at the first few airshows my father took me to as a young kid. They flew the OH-6 (Hughes 500C) and it was an impressive demonstration every time. The Army disbanded them and decided to use the "Golden Nights" parachute team as the recruiting tool instead and we have had great difficulty getting people to join the Army ever since.

Formation flying is very difficult, dangerous and I miss the hell out of it because it's really fun. The bigger the formation the better especially when you have the right guys in formation with you who know how to do it right. Here is a picture of me leading a tight formation of two Blackhawks:

This is a link to a composite video of a formation flight I made in an ultralight helicopter called a Mosquito. I am the second helicopter and I have a camera mounted on my helmet while the same video is being taken by someone on the ground. I've been flying full size helicopters for more than 20 years now and I have never had as much fun as I have had flying the Mosquito especially in this formation. Enjoy.

The Army has a privately funded, but endorsed helicopter demonstration team called, "Sky Soldiers." One of the members is a guy I flew cobras with in Germany in the early '80s.

Incidentally, I also saw the Silver Eagles perform in about 1973 or so. They stole the show from the Blue Angels, at least for me.

UH60 - Wow! That is the coolest heli vid I've ever seen. I can only imagine being right out in the open flying around in one of those little ultralight helis. I am SSOOOOO jealous. One day I'll get to fly a heli. When I'm rich and famous, I'm buying me one of those mosquitos.

I looked into it a couple years ago, and unfortunately too expensive right now... And for the forseeable future
If it can't hover, it ain't worth flying.

is that the group that flys Cobras?? We just had an Army heli demo team here a couple years ago (I missed it!!!:mad and they flew all back Cobras w/ Gold trim like the Golden Knights chute team.
Actually, there's somebody over on the scale board that is building a Dr. Tim 60 Cobra and painting it up like the team Cobra.

EDIT: I looked it up and you're right on JGUN!!! I didn't know their names. Hers another link. Sweet looking machines!!

This image is obviously chopped with photoshop. You just combine multiple pictures into one photo.
