    Bill,

    Nice shots. We could all hope she comes back to grace our skies again.

    What was the story with tail wheel?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Took another look (do that a lot here checking out all the great shots), reminds me of a bird of prey at speed.

    Awesome paint scheme.

    Yeah, I really liked Furias and was very hopeful that they would show us a good run that year. The tail wheel was just a by-product of the aircraft not having that much time on the course. Whatever testing was done probably did not involve closely observing he underside of the aircraft as it pulled Gs at speed. I'm sure it would have been fixed if other, far bigger issues did not come up at the end of this flight. I do hope to see a race-prepped Furias again. And I do see the Bird of Prey.

    Owen,

    Is the Blue Angel getting a wash down?

    Great shots, thanks for sharing.
