Newcastle Aircraft Preview Day 4 Part 1 – AeroSuperBatic Wingwalkers

 

The AeroSuperBatic Wingwalkers are a UK based wing-walking team and have been specialists in display flying for over 30 years and operate one of the best known and loved civilian air display acts in Europe, they will be making their debut at the Newcastle Festival of Flight in 2018!

Their wingwalking team has performed at over 2500 different events successfully representing several large brand names in the form of very high profile sponsorship deals. Their displays are seen live by over 6 million spectators each year in the UK alone.
They perform a breathtaking sequence of acrobatic manoeuvres and handstands whilst strapped to the top wings of the team’s beautiful Boeing Stearman biplanes.

The Aircraft

As for the aircraft, 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. And we are sure they will thrill the crowds at Bray this coming weekend!!

It will be great to see the Aerosuperbatic Wingwalkers make their debut in Newcastle along with the gorgeous ladies who will put on a great display of gymnastics on the wings while the aircraft put on a thrilling aerobatic display.

Check back later for another aircraft preview.
