F-16 Loss of Control, Test Pilot on Yaw
http://www.avweb.com -- At Edwards Air Force Base, they still test F16 fighters, because each software upgrade and each new weapons package introduces new parameters. Experimental test pilots need to identify the aircraft's performance limits and they need to know how it will perform before their brothers and sisters in arms take upgraded Vipers into combat. This is one of those tests. Video by Glenn Pew for AVweb.com -- http://www.glennpew.com
