Hammerhead goes wrong
Me and an istructor doing aerobatics in a Yak 52 in Iceland in May 2011.
We did about 30 hammerheads. I am trying to get a grip on this manouver on
the Yak52 so I took an instructor with me. This is were it got wrong. The
airplane was entering a spin at the top but we did the evasive manouver.
Just to mention, I am spin trained on the Yak 52 by russian instructor
Gennady Elfimov. The teacher in this flight was Magnus NorÃ°dahl highly
experienced in Yaks.

Ice shedding on airplane wing in flight, HD Cockpit view
Here you can see the activation of very effectiv thermal wing anti ice and
the resulting ice-shedding in flight.
On this type of aircraft wing anti-ice is usually used as a de-icing device
to remove existing ice on the wing, seldom to prevent icing.
I like to remember that, even though it looks very easy to remove ice on
the wings leading edges, ice can still impose a threat to the aircraft,
especially on the engines. It cannot really bring an engine to stop, but it
still can cause some serious damage.
Delta MD-88 Skidding on Takeoff
The pilot in command increased power too early on a sharp turn, as someone
commented " He probably misjudged the spool up time " . If you look closely
you can see that the nosegear is pointed directly at you in the skid. Which
is almost sideways.
Ferrari Birthday Gift!
My dad has always dreamed about driving the Ferrari, so for his birthday
gift; we got him one. P.S. When he took a seat in the car, he thought we
got him some type of Total Gym/Bow Flex. LOL!

Icing Conditions...melting after descending from 13K' to 2400'
I was flying a Cessna T182T from Sligo, Ireland to Hageunau, France on
December 16, 2010. I had been on top of the clouds, but then entered cloud
tops over southern England. I had too much ice and had to descend to melt
it off. WARNING: NEVER get into conditions like this. Very Dangerous! My
apologies about the AUDIO...there is a short in the system I am using.
Emirates A380 Crosswind Landing. A6-EDG.
Was having second thoughts about uploading this. Miserable, rainy and windy
so excuse the poor filming.
A6-EDG arriving on its first visit, Friday 1st October.
