Van's RV - Spins, Loops and Immelmans SR-71 Blackbird Pilot Col Rich Graham - RightRudder
My friend Richard Graham and I finally got around to going out and having some fun with spins in my RV7A. Although he and I had done all kinds of other aerobatic maneuvers in my RV, we'd never gotten around to spins. And given that back in the day Rich was a Spin Demonstration Pilot in the AirForce, we couldn't let that oversight go uncorrected. Video from: RightRudder YouTube Channel
