    I wonder how may prop's he's went though before he perfected that move. Not to mention how much money he has to burn. It's to nice of aircraft to be screwing around in.

    Easy way to ruin a prop !! And possibly an engine.

    I've done that momentarily when flying the Supercubs here at USAFA and i did have some forward movement. There was a few times it looked like he got real close to the prop. At $25,000 for an overhauled engine and $6000 for a prop, that a stunt I wouldn't want to do unless I had some deep pockets!

    I seem to remember Duane Cole(?) doing that routine at Either Reno or the California National Air races a long time ago.
    Judicious use of brake, throttle and down elevator. Great show!
