Pitts S1
Flight Videos

Steen Aero Lab's own Barrett Brummett owns a Pitts S1-C with some interesting features... one of which is a unique smoke system that can produce pulsing smoke. Here are some great videos of Barrett showing what the S1 can do. There are three videos available, in a variety of formats. (NOTE: The Windows Media [.WMV] versions are recommended, due to the fact that these were the original source files from which the others were derived and thus have greater clarity.)

  NOTES:   Files not playing smoothly? If the file isn't playing smoothly when you click on the links above (this is usually due to your connection speed) then you should download the entire video to your computer's hard drive before playing it. Right-click on one of the links above, then select "Save Target As..." and select a folder to save it to. After the file finishes downloading, open that folder and double-click on the file to play it.  

We would like to thank Barrett Brummett for making this footage available!
