EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: Airshow Performers - Skip Stewart

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo top airshow performers entertained the crowds at America's largest aviation event, EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016.  Among them was Skip Stewart flying his highly modified Pitts S-2S named Prometheus, after the deity in Greek mythology who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to humanity.  Skip is known around the world for his breath-taking takeoff sequence where he slides sideways down the runway just feet above the pavement.  His sweeping vertical maneuvers, and his ribbon cut, are sure to amaze any audience.  Here is a sample of Skip Stewart's Tuesday show and Wednesday autograph session.
