Automatic TRANSCRIPT

We'd love to have you. What's so impressive about that? Mark is your in an aircraft. It's out of Control and as an experienced aerobatic pilot. You know that your airplane is never out of control. You May in some very specific maneuvers. put it out of control for just a moment, but you know how to get it right back. You're spinning inverted in and out of control airplane. You're within seconds of hitting the ground fallen at four to five thousand feet a minute, and you started this at about twenty eight hundred eight L. something like that. And all the while. Though you're thinking, you're not panicking. You're thinking and composure flying the airplane until you're doing what you're trained to do and what your experience tells you to do. You're able to pull it back into controlled flight and recover it. That's impressive mental composure. Yeah, it was in. Here's the tragic thing that. You know as we talk about now I guess the Epilogue of I've learned from it and what my brother learn. One of the sad things about this story is if something tragic had happened the consensus of the aviation community in you know my friends and family. They would've said my brother had just bought this new airplane. He must have been flying. He must have been trying the aerobatics and he must've. must've screwed it up and then big brother must have been fighting to fix it, but he probably didn't have enough time to fix little brothers. Mistake I'm man enough to say. That was one hundred percent. My Fault of what I did, but the tragedy I. Think would have been. They probably would have said that. It was my brother's fault of what happened because they would have just made those assumptions. So as you look back on, it mark. You're going into this hammerhead maneuver. The Christian Eagle itself is new to you, but again the flight characteristics very similar to its see you go into this hammerhead, which you've done dozens of times and yet you get a surprise reaction from what happened. That night you know my brother and I had a small little celebration of life..
