Wow,that's so much more amazing than I even thought it would be.
Thanks for the ride...I'm sure glad you got that camera!
I must admit...pretty damn cool...
That baby flies a lot faster than I thought. Especially zippy on the take off. You did an awesome job!I want one..
congrats birdman! congrats! awesome!
Very nice! Congratulations. Got a flight nickname picked out?
With the wind today, we are seriously surprised that you survived. Well done!
Believe I felt some of your excitement! Glad you had the camera. Thanks for sharing.
Ha Ha any landing you can walk away from is a good one. That's gotta be a rush and a half.
Coming in low and fast! Hell yeah, all my senses were kinda lit up there, felt like I was along for the ride!Do they have enough range that you can run errands into town with them?
Most awesome, John!Flight gives you an amazing view of the surroundings- it looked like you were level with the top of Panther Mountain.Can't wait to hear your impressions.
Yay! TFL 1 has taken to the air!!! Nice job flying. And thanks for the video with sound ... it was awesome to share the experience with you!
Great job JW!
Absolutely amazing John! That is a lot higher than I thought it would go. Fantastic views of the desert! Thanks for sharing your ride with us!
Whoa! That looks intense getting that high up in the air so fast. Way to go!
Hats off to you John. Thats what I call testicular fortitude. I hope we get to see many more flights. Well done.
Great job Pilot John! All that hard work, preparation, study, etc., has given you something you will have to treasure the rest of your life. And now I know why you so carefully prepared your landing area.And we all thank you for sharing your great adventure with us earthbound mortals!
Wow! Awesome...did I hear your instructor call you "Maverick"? Great production values in this little flick too. It's stomach-churning when the sound of the motor drops down...like you are going to plummet to earth. Yikes!
Awesome. Great job, John!
yep, maverick is good! Would love to see the landing!
Freaking Awesome John. Just think of the experiences that await you....
Next stop the Devil's Playground???
Congrats on the flight and thanks for sharing!
Looked as if in your face-first touchdown the apparatus was on top of you. Is that true? How much does it weigh? Can you solo without ground support? Video good, but tell us more.Ben's reaction?
Wow, that looks like a ton of fun! I wasn't originally interested, but after that video it looks damn impressive. Thanks for sharing.
Way,way cool John.Great video.
Awesome! That's going to great to see the desert from the sky.
Yay Airman John!
