    Default Bob Hannah

    Wow! Did anyone catch the amazing video footage of Voodoo on Speed this morning? As I was getting ready for work, I turned on the tv and Motocross Files was on. The last 5 minutes had a bit about Buckwheat's adventures in 1998.

    Great video, if I do say so myself.....

    Dang! I KNEW I'd seen it somewhere before.

    It was just a cool way to wake up. I was feeling kind of groggy up until that point.

    Yup.

    Interesting editing, though. The pic of him pulling up is a far away shot taken from pylon 8 (in fact, I was standing next to Wayne when I shot it).

    But then they spliced in a close up shot of Voodoo pulling up with my voice saying "Oh, looks like something just flew off the airplane". That shot was actually taken during qualifying while I was sitting in the grandstands, and he had a piece of the cowling or exhaust fly off just coming around the last pylon.

    I guess I'm the only one that would know, but still....made me chuckle to myself.

    I'd have to find it first....LOL.

    The footage that Speed used they actually got from Bob and Terri. I guess when the film crew was there, they asked if there was any air racing footage, and Terri pulled out my "Bradfire" tapes that I had given them.

    You're over in their neck of the woods, aren't you? You could probably go over to Buckwheat's place and watch it with him...get a 'colorful' narrative of what he was thinking! :-)

    I dunno, Wayne...did you ever use/post any of my footage of that incident from that year?

    So would I! Please not YouTube, my computer here blocks it.
    Do you have footage of Smoot when he made that spectacular pull up on fire? VERY dramatic moment as we were all yelling "Pull up and get out!"
