    Neat clip
    Hats off to the pilots too. have a stoppage that low , with the speed those things would knock off and it would take some very fancy footwork to stay in the air.

    No problemo, here is the vid in mp4 if somebody want to save in disk, is also compatible with Ipods.

    True however the gun recoil dont seem too bad after all.

    Don't let the look of the recoil fool you. I read once that every shot dropped the nose of the aircraft by 5 degrees hence the single shots. Fire more than one and you are looking at the ground coming up pretty fast.

    You re welcome Aaron.

    I guess it depens also on inertia, at higher velocity of the aircraft less effect of the gun recoil.
