The below 3 minute video clip captures the truly amazing aerobatics of the Red Bull Air Show team in action over downtown Budapest, Hungary. Take it in, because our own FAA would not too likely let this sort of Air Show take place over the very center of an American City. Should there be any accident or crash, or if one of the planes were to lose their engine, the results could be catastrophic for both the spectators you see watching the show, but any accident could also easily damage the numerous architectural antiquities in the heart of the city – and over which the aerobatics were being performed. Although the Allies bombed Budapest near the end of WWII, they were careful to avoid these precious old buildings and monuments. This video was spotted and provided for us by FASF member and news scout, Doc Edwards, who reminds us to watch for the rarely seen extreme aerobatic flying helicopters. As always:
