Lead saw an aircraft to the left and quickly rolls wings level. 6 was left high. Textbook breakout execution - well done.
I see Robert’s up to his usual “Positive” self today
They passed directly over my house at about 1000ft off the deck. It was LOUD and beautiful.
Got to LOVE that jet noise
It’s one of my favorite sounds next to bald eagles screeching.
I would love to hear the T-Bird radio conversation during the event. Well done and nice recovery!
