This is not your usual air-show display
Three of the authors on Learning from Dogs are or have been pilots although only one, Bob Derham, is a real pilot! I.e. he does it for a living!
Most pilots and many wannabes love the atmosphere of a good air show but after a few visits they can become rather predictable and that applies as much to the flying displays. After all there is only so much that one can do to an aeroplane.
Not so the good people who comprise the Franklin’s Flying Circus.
Here’s a YouTube video showing Kyle Franklin ‘stealing’ a Piper Cub. As a past owner of a Piper Super Cub, I have to tell you that the skills being used in this display are supremely clever.
