Great Scott! - The Aerobatics of Dave Scott at OCIA 2018

The Pitts Biplane is an aerobatic beast, with power to spare for crowd-delighting performances.

Dave Scott knows how to really wring out the performance of a Pitts and he did so at the airshow.

His routine began with a hangar-height pass down the runway.

Then up into a loop.

It's not an aerobatic performance in a Pitts unless you do tricks inverted:

Hammerhead stalls, loops, knife-edge pases, barrel rolls, and spins thrilled the crowd.

A great performance.

A friend of mine owned an S2.

Gave me a ride, and scared the daylights out of me....

Yep a ride in a Pitts is about the most fun you can have with your clothes on!

The thing that got me was the near instantaneous G loading that it would pull. 720* snap rolls so fast I was pinned in the seat.
