The link "History of Hollywood Stunt Pilots" is not working at this time; the site is not responding. If after a few days it is still not working please remove it. Thanks! --Dan East 03:39, 19 November 2005 (UTC)

The Beech 18 flying in It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World was done by Mantz partner Frank Tallman. --Towpilot 01:03, 22 March 2006 (UTC)

This article is quite romanticized and doesn't read too well, so I'm going to edit it a bit. Wootcannon 13:43, 10 December 2006 (UTC)

Edited it, this is a pefect example of the kind of thing I deleted "A non-pilot will think nothing of parallel-parking an expensive new car with inches to spare, but considers airplane stunt flying to be just short of insanity. There is no difference except the speed involved and the necessary skills. You can't do much about the speed, but you can hone your skills, and you can plan every move."

Aye that nugget's a canny platitude for starters. I subsequently did lots more cleanup. Gwen Gale 11:01, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

And I think another round of NPOV edits is in order... Check-Six 16:51, 2 July 2007 (UTC) - This above user withdraws his comments on the grounds that they (the comments) were stupid -Ed.
