In case we need reminding why we don't aerobat at low level.

No sign of the essential push needed when inverted.

''the Super Decathlon had been flying too low when it came in for landing. ''

Note to self- remember to stay high when landing..

Pilot critical.

I'm surprised there is enough of him left to determine as critical. Good luck to his recovery.

I presume that the inverted approach must have been to give him the best possible view of the runway.
All the best to the pilot and lets hope he does recover OK.
