Flight Dynamics

"Oct. 14 Can a biplane fly formation with the Blue Angels? You bet. These are not doctored photos. Airshow pilot Sean D. Tucker is flying formation on two Navy Blue Angels jets at 120 knots, causing the jets to fly nose high to achieve the high angle of attack needed at such a slow airspeed. The Blue Angels and Tucker were practicing separately in preparation for the Fleet Week Air Show over San Francisco Bay but took time out to fly this carefully briefed photo formation. Karl Koeppen, who does publicity for Tucker, took these pictures from a Piper Seneca chase plane. Tucker positioned himself on the outside, flying formation on the two jets, and Brian Norris then carefully maneuvered the chase plane into various positions around their formation to get the shots. Tucker is in a forward slip to show off his highly modified Pitts biplane."
