Flying the L-29 Delfin
The Czech Aero Vodochody L-29 Delfin is a cold-war era, eastern bloc fighter
training jet. We took a fun flight with our friend, renowned test pilot
and 3-time Reno sport class champion Dave Morss, owner of this
plane. Luckily there were a couple of unlimited class pylon racers
to fly with: two Hawker Sea Furies.
This is in Hollister, CA, a general aviation airport that's just
thick with warbirds of all shapes and sizes. A great place just
to visit, have lunch, and gawk.
A number of people have asked me what music this is. It's just
me messing around on the synclav one afternoon. No, really it's
the flying music from High Road to China by John Barry.
