Just goes to show nothing is imposable, very touching.

I showed my daughters this, au.youtube.com/watch?v=fSbssO2DR7A , it's only short.

I've often told them never give up unless you're dead !

Sorry Happy Camper, but that video is a FAKE - watch the DEBUNKED view as well for a very accurate summation. Also one of the other videos taken that same day clearly shows the real plane passing while a model enters, looses its wing and completes this "stunt".
Much prefer the message referred to by the Fox!

Jan, well there you go...the wonders of modern editoring. Excuse my ignorance but what is a "Debunked" view?

Sorry Al(Happy Camper) - should have put that in quote marks as the word refers to part of the name of one of the other postings on YouTube. I guess it refers to "bunkum" - when you say something is bunkum it indicates it is rubbish, worthless and the like, as in "what a load of bunkum.....to debunk a myth...to show it is rubbish, a nonsense".

As you say though, a very clever piece of video editing for a bit of heart-stopping entertainment. Those of us who have a little aviation knowledge would also recognise the stunt as just that - an impossible sequence made to look plausible.

Just goes to show you can't take much at face value these days, except perhaps a Bushtracker! Can't wait to get back on the road this year.
