Got bored, drove my Jeep to....

a small airport and got to ride in a World War II 1941 Waco Biplane!

The ride was bad ass, the pilot was awesome! We did 3 loops, a bunch of barrel rolls, and some other cool shit I don't know the name of, haha

After the ride the pilot said he pulled us out of a slight stall at one point, haha

Here are a few pics and a video. The pilot gave me the go pro source files.

They are going to edit a professional video with all the highlights and upload to YouTube, should have it later on tonight.













I trimmed out a short clip for you guys to check out, shit was nuts!

So wait - you got to do amazing stunts in a Waco after driving your very sweet Jeep with your incredibly good looking girlfriend? I don't like you ... ;D

Slight stall = kind of pregnant = a little bit dead

Re: Got bored, drove me Jeep to....

We have one of these stored at the local airport by me:
North American B-25 Mitchell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Load MF when it takes off! (I'm only a couple hundred yards off the flight path.)

I'd love to take a flight in it, but I'm not sure if they even take people up anymore AND I'm not sure I would fit very well as I'm 6'3".

Re: Got bored, drove me Jeep to....

Awesome! I've seen similar type rides elsewhere, my sister in law did one in WV last year for her birthday. Very cool they let you both go, that plane was so small it was only one at a time.
