One of the best displays on the Irish airshow circut has been added to the Newcastle Festival of Flight on August 11th.
Andrew Fenton will be making his debut here in Newcastle in his very colourful Christen Eagle coming from Sligo, this example was originally built in the USA and has been described as a sports car in the skies!
The sporting aerobatic biplane Christen Eagle II is very similar to the Pitts Special. The company who make the Eagle, Aviat, also own the rights to the Pitts Special.
Taking its first flight in 1977, the Eagle II is marketed in kit form for homebuilding. It set a new standard for completely documented homebuilding kits that revolutionised the homebuilding industry.
Andrew Fenton has delighted airshow go-ers throughout Ireland and it will be great to see his colourful aircraft display in Newcastle this summer!
Check back later today for our 2nd aircraft confirmation. (Picture from flying in Ireland – not our own)
