Now, if I only had a BILLION or two, I would do the same thing!

Heck I've had at least one of all the WWII major front line fighter aircraft. Didn't cost as much then as now though. Didn't need much hangar space either on account of their being made by Revell.

This lady got lucky AND has some flying skills. As you pilots would say, "Any landing you can walk away from, is a good landing" !

Saving the possibility of a fuel fed post crash fire most autos aren't at much risk from a collision with a Skyhawk. It weighs about the same as Miata with a lot less protection than the car has. She is a lucky lady!

And a damn good pilot, I'd say!

I've seen a few fly by's in my life but never seen one from this angle. Pretty cool. Don't know when or where this one took place. Thought I'd share it.

Looks like College Station to me. Yes she aint a bad stick for getting there with the greasy side down and shiny side up.

I remember watching a Red Sox game that was preceded by a fly over of a NH National Guard unit.

I think it was opening day after their first World Series win back 2005 or so.

As the planes flew over Fenway one of them barrel rolled and right away I thought it didn't seem part of the show.

Apparently the pilot was excited about the Worls Series win.

I heard it cost him his flight status.
