    Hi Wurger. Could be, I don't know for sure. The photo dates back to around 1989-90' as far as I know and the caption describes the 20L at "maximum power" formating with the Mirage, who appears to be struggling with the low speed.

    Cheers.

    Good one. A friend used to fly a Mudry CAP 20 - nice little kite.

    I seriously doubt it was "easy."

    The lead sled doesn't do very well below 300 knots, and any roll at 118 knots would be with rudder, not ailerons. That accoring to several former F-4 pilots I know. All flew the E and later models.
