Brilliant climb out - and one of those lovely 270° near complete rolls - just a l i t t l e bit more and we'd have a Rory Falk :D :D :p

360-
270=

90 degrees or 25%, that's actually quite a bit of a difference David and an adequate safety margin!!!!!

I can do the maths young man ;) :p

I was just pointing out that he was 75% of the way there.... so......thus ergo.......just hold it over for a tiny f r a c t i o n longer .....and we'd see a nice complete roll :)) :))

I KNOW they'd never actually do it - but it LOOKS so close :D :p

must admit they have not been a patch this year on other years from the the limited number of times I've seen them. I've said before they do annalise each & every display & are very critical of themselves, so expect he was in for some stick and to to be honest he wasn't the only one out of place but the only one that showed in this shot.

Is this a result of cutbacks? I presume that the Reds practice free of such constraints???
