X-Flight construction gets loopy

Posted Monday, March 12, 2001 3:44 AM | Contributed by ShiveringTim

Construction just keeps on chugging along. In the past week the X-Flight crew has completed the loop. Only one high section of track remains: the horseshoe turn. After the turn that connects the first drop to the loop approach is done, all that remains is the turn over the lift, the barrel roll, helix, brakes and station; basically the low portions.

I agree. Very good pics. The people who said X-Flight wouldn't be ready by opening day must feel pretty stupid right now. I can't wait to ride it in May!

Those are excellent pics, some of the best so far I have seen of X-Flight. Of course I always had faith in SFO and Vekoma for building X-Flight in time, of course Stealth was built in an incredible 1 month and 2 weeks I believe, so its great to see Vekoma doing the same again with X-Flight.

Cant wait to ride it in June
