Wingwalkers & Vintage Pair debut in Newcastle!
The Aerosuperbatic Wingwalkers will be making their Newcastle debut on August 11th in their Boeing Stearman aircraft.
Anyone who has ever seen the aircraft knows what a magnificent sound the Stearman makes. Along with 2 gorgeous ladies on their wings doing acrobatics, they will put on a fantastic display in Newcastle!
The Boeing Stearman is a biplane used as a military trainer aircraft, of which at least 10,626 were built in the United States during the 1930s and 1940s.
After World War II, the thousands of primary trainer PT-17 Stearman planes were auctioned off to civilians and former pilots. Many were modified for cropdusting use, with a hopper for pesticide or fertilizer fitted in place of the front cockpit.
There are many examples flying still today, and mainly used for aerobatics at airshows.
Formerly known as the Breitling Wing Walkers, aerobatic is the only aerobatic formation wing-walking team and are seen by close to 6 million people each year!
Also listed for Newcastle is a ‘Vintage Pair’ while it is unknown as of writing this post what exactly this display is, it is thought to be 2 Chipmunk trainer aircraft.
One more announcement to come, a returning crowd favourite who has everyone gasping at his flying antics!
