EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014: Jim Peitz Aerobatic Bonanza
Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo
Among the flashy airshow acts at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014 was a gem of a performance by Jim Peitz in the aerobatic F33C Bonanza.  The Pierre, SD native has been flying since 1975, and doing aerobatics since 1992.  He has since earned multiple pilot certificates and owns the Capital City Air Carrier FBO.  The airshow performance features a graceful, low-speed aerial ballet using the Bonanza, which at some angles resembles its stable mate, the T-34 Mentor.  You probably won't see the local Bonanza pilot handle the aircraft like this!
