Nice modern HD footage. Love the 'flaps cam' and the wings folding on the F4U too.

Wonderful planes and a very familiar scenery.

Their base is the Red Bull Hangar 7 at Salzburg airport, and they flew south from there along the river Salzach. The Highway you see is the Tauernautobahn.
What a loacation to fly!

Thanks for the vid Chickenboy!

Wow! Beautiful video quality. Beautiful planes. That loop from the tail camera of the P-38 was awesome.

When they pull out fo the loop they both develop visible wingtip vortices at the same time.

...nice...wonder why corsair-boy used O2, but not lightning-boy...doesn't look like they went higher than 10k', which is where hypoxia starts to potentially be a problem...the P-38 was driven with a yoke, not a stick? didn't know that...

Just amazing. They had great camera locations, I only wish there had been a chase plane to another view of both of them at the same time.

Thats the vid from a photoshooting session about 18 months ago. Same plane. Plus a bit of Mitchell footage.

toys of an Austrian billionaire, nice planes but the Corsair seems a little misplaced flying in the Alps
