If you're going to say that you're preparing for the air show by practicing and posting pictures of you practicing, it's usually expected that you actually post pictures of YOU practicing, not some random RL pictures that you think are cool. There are other places for photos that you've taken yourself. Don't post them here because this is a YS Air Show not real life.

I guess you're right, sorry. It was just to illustrate the pyrotechnics testing at an airshow I went to, I was trying to show what my demo was. Oh well. But did you see my landing photographs? I'm also going to put up more photographs if you think that is a good idea?

As long as it's YS and not some random air show pictures. If you want to edit cooler looking pyro into some photos you took during your practice, that's also fine but it's not going to change what's really going to happen on the day of the show. Pretty much everyone here knows what it really looks like.

I'm gonna be doing a Jet Car flame test and speed run at the airshow, but if anyone would like to perform a race against it. Like a Pitts against the Jet car. The Pitts can do a base leg approach but stay like 200 ft. off the ground, then as soon as it passes over the runway (parallel just above me) I'll kick my afterburners like there's no tomorrow. So anyone want to perform this with me?

I'm flying my Pitts in the show. I can schedule you after I fly.

So, while I'm doing my testing, would you want to do a go-around and come back lined up with the runway to race? PM me about it.

Both of my aircraft arrived via the Globe Trotter transport earlier today to practice for the show. Although loading the transport was a nightmare, I managed to fit both aircraft and their necessary equipment inside.

And how do you guys like this boundary layout of the airshow airspace. It extends about 500 or so feet from the bottom left to accommodate approach lights and landing pattern.

Radiatordude, the aerobatic box was determined weeks ago by the YS Airshows Staff. See the first post.
