That was either luck, he’s really good, or just plane fake. Either way it’s interesting.

I’ve seen that video before and I understand that it’s more than a few years old. But it is still amazing flying.

It might be possible, a F-15 also did it, it’s pretty amazing too:

Sorry guys, but it is a well known hoax mixing a real aerobatic with an R/C aircraft. You’ll find an article on AvWeb debunking it. The jet pilot that landed on one wing a few years back did it because of the sheer raw power of the jet engine can overpower the lift generated by the wings. Actually the Fighter’s wings don’t generate that much lift if you compare them to a piston engine.

If you’d ever piloted a small aircraft you’d know how very small asymmetries can affect your stability in a big way.

On the other hand, this whole Lechon thing of posting all those videos without any Workshop, Projects, Blog or anything whatsoever remotely related to woodworking is starting to stink like a subtle spamming to me…

JoJo, this is the coffeshop part of the website, were people do go a bit off the topic of woodworking. I don’t see a big problem with it, myself.

If anything, it’s very entertaining, and yes, it does appear to be a fake, but a real fun one!

I know Pashley but I was pointing to the fact that in 30 days there’s only been posts trying to increase the traffic to that site (and Google’s awareness of it) and NOT a single one about woodworking. Look at the profile: there’s no name, no information of any kind, no workshop, no projects… nothing whatsoever that is the norm in this site. Not very community friendly if you ask me. I expect more from LJ members. Maybe I expect too much?

I agree with Jojo on this one.

Hey guys, I just happen to like the site, I am not promoting it, I am retired from woodworking, I was just trying to share things that were funny or interesting to me on this forum called “Coffee Lounge”, which some of the postings have nothing to do with wood working. But not too worry, this is my last post ever, and I am not coming back…..

Lechon, don’t have such a thin skin. You must understand that all points at the same we are seeing more often here: people taking advantage of Martin’s site. We all must care for our communities, whether they’d be real or virtual.

Even if you are retired you could share some of your woodworking knowledge here with us. We’d love that. You might not be active in the field nowadays, but I’m sure everybody could profit from that, specially the novice among us. Tell us something about you, show us some projects and integrate in the community. And yes, post also in the Coffee Lounge anything you like. But don’t deprive us from your woodworking abilities. After all, once a woodworker, forever a woodworker.

Have your say...
