You can watch the 1:03 minutes of the race leading up to it here.   Australia's Matt Hall had a scare during the first qualifying session at the Red Bull Air Race on June 5, 2010, when his plane touched the surface of the Detroit River, but the former RAAF pilot quickly recovered and returned safely to Race Airport. Hall was challenging for the lead, when he suffered an aerodynamic wing stall. His left wing skimmed the surface of the river and then his right wheel cover hit the water, but Hall was quickly able to regain control of his MXS-R aircraft and climb up into the sky. The 'skipping' tore off a wheel cover and damaged a wing but Hall said he'll race again soon.
