Okay, perhaps we need to cease hijacking this thread, and I'm as guilty of that as anyone else here; perhaps more. The loss of Randy's F-105 hit me hard. It was, after all, my first published design, and I have a rather paternal instinct about it. The fact that it was lost in the Clover made me think - and post - about the new rules proposal concerning the entry point of that maneuver.

I do have a lot of additional thoughts about that proposal; and I'm not indicating that I'm totally in favor of it. Let's move this discussion to the rules section of this forum, and let Randy's unbelievably gorgeous Thunderchief have this thread all to itself; it deserves it, Sorry, Randy, for letting - and helping - it drift away from that.

Later - Bob Hunt

Wouldn't have mattered how I entered. Just bad luck. I was doing the second loop and the wind changed direction and gusted. Heavily. I hit the turbulence and the plane was swatted into the ground. I knew I should have bailed out when I had it free flight in the overhead 8s. The conditioned sucked and I should have just bailed out. Such is life.
