Chuck Aaron Puts the Red Bull Helicopter Through Its Paces Over St. Louis

The Aero Experience Team had the privilege of meeting Chuck Aaron, pilot of the Red Bull MBB BO-105, during the week of Fair St. Louis.  Aaron is the only civilian aerobatic helicopter pilot in the U.S., and in looks and deeds, was nothing less than one "cool dude."  He was extremely nice on the ramp, and made himself available to fly our own Fred Harl in the Red Bull helicopter to get some aerial photos of the crowd line.  We have some great shots of Chuck Aaron and his Red Bull helicopter performance over St. Louis Downtown Airport during the Special Needs Airshow:
