Chris Sperou Aerobatics – Pilot View

NOTE: 15-10-14, Video has been updated to extend the aerobatic sequence.
Chris Sperou and Warren Stewart recently performed at the Oysterfest in Ceduna South Australia. David Wilkie (5DME Cameraman) was there and he recorded some amazing footage of the display. There’s some nice formation sequences followed by the dual and solo displays. So, if you’ve ever wanted to sit in the pilot’s seat of an aerobatic aircraft, just hang on tight and take a look.
