So last time if flew down from Battle Creek (? not 100% sure). So where's the Raptor going to base from South Bend?
Never mind, just saw it's in BC again so I'd assume it'll just hop down and back again.

Great video with tons of vapor! Interesting to see how little he was in afterburner during the demo which apparently would be to conserve fuel for the return to Battle Creek.

Thanks! I've seen other comments about the lack of burner and I'm not sure if it's conserving gas or not. He mentioned after the show that he was doing his best to work under and around the clouds so he may have tried to keep things slower.

In the other hand, he's kind of known for flying it softer than others have so could just be his style

When he returned to Battle Creek that evening, he beat up the pattern for a solid 10 minutes and used burner on every single pass. It may also have just seemed that way too though because it was dark enough to see the extent of the burner. Was nice to be able to have that after the canceled demo earlier in the day.
