AeroSuperBatics

The women wing-walkers are sponsored by Breitling, and along with the pilots and the Boeing/Stearman bi-planes, they make up the AeroSuperbatics Flying Circus.

These were fantastic to watch, and I took a lot of photos of them. Cutting this down to a final selection of 10 has been far from easy. It is opportunities such as this that give me confidence in my ability as an event photographer.

Because they are flying away from the camera you can see the support which the women are attached too. Although they are only connected for certain parts of the display.

The pilot flies the Stearman from the rear seat, so the Wing-Wlaker can climb down into the front seat.
I love the colours that the Flying Circus and it’s sponsors Breitling have come up with. Such a great contrast with the sky, regardless of the weather.

One of my favourites, the composition, tone and colours work well, if I may say so myself.

  1. Richard,

    One I took a few years ago – they really are either brave or very silly!

    Enjoy your trip to London, pity I won’t be around whilst you are there, otherwise I would have been able to show you around a bit.

    Cheers

    Dave
