Default Combat flight with Bullet

My wife and kids purchased this flight (yes I love planes), at first I thought what a waste of money...but when I got up there...F**K YEH!!!!!!!! Awsome...ride and I got to fly and chase down the other plane...both were Nanchang cj-6a...wow man I CANNOT wait to get my pilots licence. This was a year and a half ago....cant wait until I can do this myself!!!!!!!!!

Over Perth in Western Australia.......beautiful place indeed!

That looks great. My dad had a pilots license...years ago. He was interested in being a pilot when he was young. He did some lessons out of Southend, just single/double seater planes...Cessnas (sp?) etc. Great Video.

hone: That would be affirmative.

Bullet: Great video. Looks like you had a blast. Good job as you know the cj-6a is a Chinese copy of the soviet Yak! You did good not Yaking!

They have a similar operation here in the US called Air Combat USA they use Marchetti SF-260's. They operated out of the airport I flew out of when I was in San Jose. I was going to offer to trade rides with one of the pilots in my Eagle in exchange for ride in the Marchetti but I never got around to it (.
