An airshow setup:During an airshow some years back, the crowd was treated to one of the most unique shows around the world. As a plane is prepped for flight, a man who appears to be extremely drunk cuts through the ropes and guns it for the aircraft. With security chasing him, he manages to hop into the plane and takeoff before they could catch up with him. After that, it’s pure flight magic. This is all of course a part of the show orchestrated by an expert pilot by the name of Kyle Franklin.
This act uses a highly modified PA-18A Super Cub which was built in 1956 yet designed right after World War II in the late 1940s.
