Raw video is added as you have to see this AMAZING event now!
Red Bull Air Race was in Cannes this weekend. The first time the stunning event was hosted here. Here is my voice over. As this event was so amazing, some raw video is included to share some pictures with you. Apologies for the mobile phone video quality. The courage, expertise and amazing low level flying skills of these pilots is incredible and has to be seen.
Already known for the film festival, Cannes is this year one of 8 global venues for the Red Bull Air Race. This is The Red Bull Air Race Cannes.
Specs, Nought to 60 times? forget it – the engines, standardised for all teams, are the amazing Lycoming Thunderbolts – and they race at full throttle
The planes, the EDGE 540 and the MXS-R are only 6.3metres and 6.5metres in length with a wingspan of under 7.6 metres.
The engines produce about 320 HP. All race planes have a minimum weight of 698 kg, including pilot and fuel – that leads to an aircraft with an astounding rate of climb – 3,700ft per minute that’s 1127.76 metres a minute. And a top speed of 426 kph, 230kts, that’s 265 miles per hour.
G force capability ? Well it’s literally breathtaking with a theoretical MAX of +/-12G
Among other stunning displays was the twin engined MMB Bo105. This amazing helicopter first started grabbing headlines over 50 years ago and the marque now has over 1 million flying hours. Breathtaking hardly seems a strong enough word – just watch!
Outstanding skill and courage of the pilots, superb engineers, designers and ground crews.
