Aerosuperbatics Wingwalkers

About

The Aerosuperbatics Wingwalkers fly 1940s vintage Boeing Stearman biplanes. The aircraft have been modified with extra ailerons and a bigger engine. They are fitted with a massive 450hp Pratt & Witney radial engine with a 10-foot diameter
propeller. The tips of the propeller reach supersonic speeds.

Wingwalking dates back to when young flying aces returned from the First World War totally addicted to the thrill of flying. After the war surplus aircraft was cheap to buy, so they were purchased by these pilots who would thrill crowds with their aerial antics and sell joy rides.

To entertain the crowds further and ensure they returned, the pilots began to persuade their girlfriends and engineers to walk out along their biplanes linen wings. This was the start of wingwalking and flying circus entertainment.

The Aerosuperbatics Wingwalkers recreate the fearless glamour of those pioneering years. Utilising the latest technology, they bring all the vitality and pizzazz from the 1920’s to today’s airshows.
