    Finally got back up after being down for 3 weeks due to the east coast monsoons. It occurred to me I'd never tried to see how many snaps I could get on top of a loop. Got four. Not sure my Pitts will do five- we'll see. For anyone not familiar, 'avalanche' is what a loop with a snap on top is really called. :)

    I feel like this belongs in the spin zone.

    Quintuple. :) It'll keep going beyond that, but then it's just vertical down snaps, and I don't think those count for snaps on top of a loop. ;)

    Yeah I thought it was going to be like a bunch of skiers were wiped out in a chain reaction in Austria or ... :crazy:

    If I had the scratch I'd buy my buddies Pitts 12 and go have a blast but life sux.
