Exclamation Another El Mirage youtube video!

Ken Brock Freedom Fly in 2011 - YouTube

Someone posted this video on youtube last fall, but I just noticed it today.

Whomever it was doing the filming, they had a pretty steady hand. At the first, Vance is shown giving rides in his Predator gyroplane, as well as toward the end. In fact, toward the end of this clip, it looks like a promo video of the Predator gyroplane!

At the 1:36 minute mark, through about 2:03,Ben Suissa is shown flying in his Sport Copter Lightning, with his spare, red, fuel tank fastened below his engine, between the motor mount tubes. He pulls a 360, making his rotorblades go whop-whop-whop, then does a fly by with a pull up at the end of the flight line.

Soon after Ben's flying, someone pre-rotates, and takes off quickly into the wind in a Brock(?) gyro.

Around the 4:30 mark through about 5:20, and again around the 7:00 mark, Dennis Dubois is flying around in his custom "Viewmaster" gyroplane.

Ben! This person filmed some of the follow-the-leader flying we did. And, they didn't film your helmet visor! At 7:25, you're first, followed by me, followed by Vance in his Great White Shark-teeth nose art gyro.

At 8:27, there is some fantastic close-up footage of Vance Breese giving rides, showing folks getting last minute instruction from Edna.

At 11:43, Vance does a super smooth landing while giving a ride. Cool!

There is some footage of Kerry flying his Mosquito helicopter, too.
