A recent trip to Old Warden for the usual monthly show, this time it was the Edwardian Pageant. In this blog I decided to concentrate on the Breitling Wing Walking Team, this was the first time that I have photograph the team at Shuttleworth wearing the orange colours of Breitling.
Aero Super Batics Ltd is a British aerobatics and wingwalking team based at Rendcomb, near Cirencester, Gloustershire. It is the world’s only formation wingwalking team and it has a sponsorship deal with prestigious Swiss watch manufacture Breitling. The team consists of four Boeing Stearman, Cadet biplanes, with only the two aircraft they sent for the display they put on a fantastic performance for the large appreciated crowd in attendance. The ladies,wingwalkers, were put through some energetic maneuvers whilst strapped to the top wing of the aircraft, all this in the display that lasted 25,mins,and then they had to unstrap them selves, climb back into the cockpit of the aircraft during flight, rather them then me.
photographically the two ship display works better at the smaller venues, it gives the crowd a better chance to see the tight turns and the performing wingwalkers at closer quarters.
