Wow! Still trying to get my head round that move in the first video, what do you call it, I donít think that is in The Team Manual.

I think itís a variation on a Benefit, starts from a follow then the leader turns 270 and passes behind #2, then 2 behind 3 and 3 behind 4. Very impressive that one has to go in the book.

And yes, before anyone says, I know Iíve got a long way to go before Iím up to that one.

Yep, that's the fountain... Immediately followed by the "super star" where we do that 1-2-3-4 flanking maneuver, shifting the line from horizontal to vertical, and so on. ;)

Thanks for the kudos John, that means a lot coming from you. :)

John

You and the rest of iQuad have really raised the bar.

The bit where you are doing moves in the sand is just delightful. What fun.

Great flying!!

Fraser, it's fairly normal for those four pilots, actually a little shakier than usual... It was de Rooy, Rudolph, Hathaway and myself. ;)

Fantastic.

I'm writing this half an hour from returning from an hour or two's flying. I'm JUST starting to get some control creeping in, but all that does is emphasise the yawning gulf that lies between me and competence!

It isn't a case of getting this in a few weekends, that's for sure!
