EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015: Airshow Performers - The 4ce (The Force)

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo Aero Experience returns to our year-round coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015 after taking a short hiatus to feature other Midwest Aviation events in what has turned out to be a very busy fall season.  We are proud to be sponsored again this year by Air Associates, the FBO and Cessna Pilot Center flight schools located in St. Louis, MO and Olathe, KS.  Their generous support makes our comprehensive coverage of this great aero experience possible.

The first featured aerobatic performer from EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015 is The 4CE (The Force), a three or four-member formation team depending on the venue.  The team members are all top-tier performers who fly as one in the air:  Matt Chapman, Jack Knutson, Rob Holland and Bill Stein.  Each pilot performs solo and with The 4CE throughout the season, and Rob Holland recently became the World Freestyle Champion while part of the U.S. Unlimited Aerobatic Team.  The gracefulness of the multicolor formation speaks for itself, and our photo essay will give an idea of the precision and beauty of the team's performance.  This year's airshow featured Matt Chapman, Bill Stein and Rob Holland. 

The following sequence is a compilation of multiple airshow performances throughout the week.  Check out Bill Stein's aircraft in the first two photos as it seems to change colors as the light strikes the unique paint scheme!
