Cool Some G-R-E-A-T canard video

Could just be that everybody allready have seen this...

.. but in case not (this is after all an European link) - you should watch this video of 3 (modified) VEs doing formation aerobatics. Very elegant and graceful if you ask me:

http://www.tinyurl.dk/1551 (the original full url is very long)

The video and much more can be found on their website http://perso.orange.fr/patrouille.reva/

Take care

Thanks for sharing that. EZ video footage is kind of rare it seems. I think the choice of music is a little strange though.

I agree the middle aircraft appears to be a Long-EZ

I guess the Long-EZ is a replacement for the third AcroEZ (modified Varieze) that was lost in this accident:

----------------------------------------------------

One of the three Rutan AcroEz aircraft of the French civillian team Patrouille Reva, crashed at Nancy Airshow, France on Sunday 23rd June 2002, killing the pilot. The accident happened during the team's display at the airshow - an eyewitness report from one of our SIG members says that the team had just executed a triple break when the right wingman's aircraft wingtip struck the ground, sending the aircraft cartwheeling into trees, away from the public areas.

The Rutan AcroEz is an enhanced version of the original VariEz, including strengthened airframe and a more powerful engine. The aircraft that crashed was registered F-PYOL, flown by Michel Coste, a 49 year-old ex-Military pilot from Saverne.

The airshow ceased immediately after the crash, but resumed after approximately 1/2 hour with Patrouille Cartouche Doré performing their display.

The team were scheduled to perform at the Colmar-Meyenheim Airshow in France, just one week later : Understandably, they did not attend the show, but the remaining two aircraft did arrive at Colmar late in the afternoon and made a single flypast with smoke on, as a tribute to their fallen colleague.

Our sympathies go to the family and friends.

That's Europe... where "the Hoff" can top the charts.
