WOW! This was pretty daring. Just one little ripple or downdraft
etc. and it would all have been all over!
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
(CAA), and supported by Castrol Aviation, was meticulously planned and
took place under the watchful eye of divers and paramedics that
were on site.
