Miramar Air Show 2011 - Sean Tucker's "Oracle Challenger III"

This little plane can really move. It may be a bi-plane, but it's made from very modern materials including kevlar and titanium. I don't know just how fast he's flying during most of the show, but for the pass through the 2 poles to slice up the ribbons which are 25 feet off the ground, he's moving at 220 mph.






You can see the bits of ribbon still in the air after he's sliced through them with his wings.
