The first thing I decided to do, was not to take shots at the competition. I found the trainings more exciting and full of opportunities, for example: at the end of individual training, each pilot decided to execute some acrobatics, leaving the “box”, (as they called it) and land. The pilot in the photo above passed me at about 180 mph, I didn’t see what he was doing but tried to be fast enough to follow the airplane movement.
