A DARING AIRBORNE STUNT
Harvards in formation on water
Early morning anglers are treated to the spectacle of four T6 Harvard aircraft from The Flying Lions Aerobatic Team water-skiing across the Klipdrift Dam near Johannesburg, South Africa.
Arnie Meneghelli from Academy Brushware, owner of the aircraft, had this to say, 'What we did today I believe is a world first. It illustrates that South African air show pilots are amongst the best in the world.'
This unusual act, approved by the South African Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and supported by Castrol Aviation, was meticulously planned and took place under the watchful eye of divers and paramedics that were on site.
If you combine flying and skiing does that mean you are fleeing?
