Edgley EA-7 Optica

  • content_pasteComplacency killed the cat, or so the saying goes. After logging about 1850 hrs in Microsoft Flight Sim and recording over 700 flight videos from takeoff to landing I felt pretty confident. But that was in an MB-339 jet. By contrast I wouldn't have logged 2 hours in the EA-7 Optica. That lack or experience and overconfidence shows at the end of this video when I stalled and crashed.
    Luckily I was thrown clear and landed in a haystack.
