Hoosier Hammerheads 8/7/2010

Our doctor dropped the diagnosis on us, way back in April 2009. When the dust settled, our landscape had changed.

The hub had been studying with local doctor, Mike Wild, honing his skills in aerobatic aviation: that means flipping upside down, turning over and over, nosing the plane to the earth and moving like a corkscrew.

And pulling out before you crash.

Full disclosure: long ago, my father-in-law 'let' me go with him when he put his plane through these maneuvers. Strawberry jello taste best the first time.

Anyway, way back then, way off in the future was the first local competition. Mike hoped to compete. Then, well, things changed. Aerobatics was one sport that crashed.

Until recently. Mike went back to his lessons and then signed up and then showed up and flew.

Check out the promo:

And, from the not-too-hot tarmack of the
Kokomo Municiple Airport, some ground action.


  1. Yikes. That's all I can say (even after reading the article about how safe it is...).

  2. Awesome! Can I go for a ride with him sometime?
