EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014: Kent Pietsch Interstate Cadet

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo
Kent Pietsch brings good old fashioned circus-style airmanship in his Interstate Cadet to the airshow scene.  During EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 day show, he flew his famous engine-out glide and landing from 6,000 feet to the waiting outstretched arm of his crewman.  In the evening, he performed his comedy act, posing as a novice who overstresses the aircraft causing the loss of an aileron and landing gear tire!  Either way, Kent Pietsch earned the enthusiastic applause he received following his precision flying demonstrations!
