Even more X-Flight pictures coming your way! The first drop is completed, as well as the second flip under the drop. At this pace, it seems X-Flight will break Stealth's record of 35 days of steel construction.

Since I don't think anyone has posted pictures of Batwing yet, I'll just have to look at these pictures instead. Thanks to the people posting them.

I'm astonished that the coaster is rising in less time than it took the park to announce the ride from the point when rumors began circulating about a Flying Dutchman at SFWoA!
(wishing I lived close enough to a park so I could drive by and take construction pics for all to see on a regular basis)

Sweet Pics, X-Flight is growing like mad every day and will surely set a record for fastest coaster built ever. I cant wait till I ride it in June:)

I try to go every Friday or Saturday so I'm always on top of what's going on. I talked to one of the guys working there. According to him, the team started "puttin' in the iron", as he called it, the 21st of February. Additionally, he informed me that the crew was working 12 hours a day, Monday-Saturday. They seemed to be placing supports on the concrete pads no quicker than they are dry! I have a feeling testing will take the longest, especially with the fact that the seats recline on the lift, the dual platforms, and the track "switcher".

Beautiful! Are the pics 'faded' due to the lousy weather? I didn't know that they welded the spine sections. Thought they just bolted them together without any welding at all. Of course the rail sections are welded. I ain't stupid. :)
