Not only fast but flown aerobatically with great skill...the pilot obviously has fantastic eye sight. This is a BVM Super Bandit. Bob Violett is respected as one of the great designers and manufacturers in the hobby. No doubt not just the airframe design enables this jet to fly so fast bu the ducting as well. It cuts through the air like a hot knife through butter...

I didnt know B.V. was still doing models, makes sense..... though it reminds me of watching F2A speed events.

He certainly must have good eyesight. I spent half the video thinking a spot on my screen was the plane! My brain could never keep up with that.

These speeds are pretty incredible all things considered..... I don't think I could think far / fast enough ahead at those speeds without running into thoughts of foodlaugh

I wonder what that big Lightning would go like with a second lump under the hood?

The first Jet I saw at a show, a good number of years ago was a Bandit.

The crowd, as one, uttered two very well known swear words under it's collective breath as it came through for it's first fast pass. I'll never forget that.

Great skill I am sure, but does absolutely nothing for me. Sorry.

I guess this was at Long Marston? Was it Steve Prideaux flying it? He's flown a Super Bandit at the Blackbushe show for the past few years, but of course this year the show didn't take place. I've almost given up trying to get any decent video of it - it's just too fast! This is the closest I've got to capturing it on camera at speed...
