Great vidio Merlin.
I joined the CHAA (Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association) last year and I'm hoping to get a ride this summer. They have more Harvards now than God. (God only has 3, they have 8.)
They also have a Tiger Moth. Members get rides or even qualify to fly these planes. A nifty bunch of folks as well.
Many English pilots training to fly warbirds come to Ontario for the training as it costs less. Here's a link:

Nice, where did you do this?
Shoreham Airport, where the Trout and myself sometimes fly :wink: :wink:

We were pulling 4 G in those manoeuvres and I recorded them on this Image
as I could not have a loose camera. It has a pin hole lens, so not bad video considering.

This the original footage which clearer when full screen
Harvard_03-04-2010.avi ( 23mb - 1 minute video) right click save as

best with VLC media player or similar
