i was there at hillsboro and i think the air show is pretty "Insufficient & sad"

why?

*they didnt fly the F-15
*they didnt fly the F-16
*they didnt fly the A-4
*we missed the mig-15 which flew the other day
*they cancelled the main event of (F/A-18E demo)
*Hawker Hunter crashed killing the vet pilot(We all witnessed a plane crash http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif )
*After that the they evacuate the whole area and we did not have a chance to check the static aircraft display

bad weather? terrorism? insurance problems? as a reason for any cancelations? Shame about the hunter....

Ive nver heard of an airshow being evacuated after a crash at some distance. Pity about the hunter , and I have been at shows where most of the main stuff got cancelled or didnt fly. bummer.

the hunter have a pretty sluggish takeoff spending the whole runway,once airborne..the hunter dipped into a negative rate of climb...

IMO,I think the FOD from the downed RC might have something to do with the crash http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

....The Jet car is pretty awesome!
