A coal-fueled Mach 2.6 German aircraft from WWII?

Amazing OFL caught on video.

He goes into a spin. His gear hits the top of a truck, does what looks like an outside loop and sticks his gear and tail in the snow almost simultaneously.

Snarge

When a birdstrike occurs and it leaves unidentifiable goo all over the damaged plane, the remains of the bird is called snarge.
Carla Dove will tell you all about it.

Appareo ESG Install and Test Flight PIREP

Here's another PIREP on an ADS-B out install. Although we are a couple years out from the ADS-B mandate I though I would give you a PIREP about our recent purchase and install.
