Default 12 RV's Flying at the Atlanta Airshow

Very cool 360 video of the "Full Throttle Formation Team" that performed May 22-23 at the Atlanta Airshow.
Lots of RV models (RV3, RV4, RV6, RV7, RV8) flew various precision formation configuration changes.
Check out the shadows that appeared under the formation!

Chris...
Hah! You may as well bite the bullet now and put in a smoke system.
When you fly with your smoking RV friends, they will shame you into it..

Good luck on your RV-14 build!

At least now I know what I'll use for one of those "extra" buttons on my control stick ...

Default Awesome show!

These guys put on an amazing show! Everything from start up to shutdown was displayed to precision. I really enjoyed seeing the formation changes after each pass and their final pitch out with smoke looked awesome.

Well done!!

Default Hey Greg, Looking good!

If my old eyes don't deceive me that's Greg Reese of Team RV and Team Aerodynamix fame leading this bunch of old men around the skies! Great to see that the "world's largest" has been equaled. Now put some formation aerobatics and a night show together and you will really have something.

We used to fly the Atlanta show at PDK. That looks like Falcon Field. You guys don't travel far.

I wish you all great success!
