    went and saw this today!
    those pilots are amazing!

    i found myself a good little spot to catch all the action... got interviewed by the red bull film crew for the dvd theyre releasing... got up close to all the pilots and got them all to sign my program... was sprayed with champagne... and i got sunburnt.

    :banana:
