Video: Formation flying at Camden


Recommended Posts

The last time I was involved there were chipmunks a 172 and a Beech A-36. There's no harm in running with the flaps out on the faster planes, especially when there is plenty of power available. You need it when you are on the outside of a turn. It can be hard work. ( I'm not a great fan of formation flying, you might have noticed). I had a Comper Swift do a barrel roll around me when I was on my first solo cross country. Haven't been the same since. Ha Ha.. Nev

Actually we had a bigger motor in the 172 we were in. Which made it a little more interesting.

Makes it much easier having the more powerful engine when you are the following aircraft - specially on the outside of turns with multiple aircraft. Got to watch it when leading though.
