    He is pretty handy with that airplane. And Kirby's right, it was fun to watch, as was Jed Johnson in the Pilatus PC-12. That was some really smooth and tight flying, for such a big go fast machine.

    I watched a Pilatus PC12 air ambulance come into Machias Valley, Maine last summer. 2800ft I think. What a beast, and a good stick. Used 1/2 runway to get stopped, about that to get out. Really impressive performer, and looked like some rough field capability with that landing gear.
