The RNLAF F27 display has to be one of the wackiest I’ve ever seen. Much of it on one engine, with alternating shutdowns. Had to tone his act down for UK displays as the CAA wouldn’t sanction it.

Bit dated now, and not as impressive as on the day, however.

His final stunt was to shut them both down during the wingover and land off it. Think that was the bit that pissed the CAA off. The display aircraft would go through 5 or 6 engines a season.

Saw similar at Fairford RIAT in 86. Pilot burst all his tyres on landing!!!! Smack on wrist. Bloody good display flying though!
