EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: Airshow Performers - RedLine, Sammy Mason and Patty Wagstaff

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo Aero Experience features three different but complimentary airshow performers in our continuing coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016, sponsored by Air Associates.  Each brings a unique style and aircraft to the airshow scene, standing out among the many performers in the daily airshows.  

First is RedLine Airshows, with Ken Rieder and Jon Thocker flying their red and white 200hp RV-8s in tight formation and opposing maneuvers.  We have had the privilege of covering the RedLine team at EAA AirVenture and other Midwest venues, including up close at Cape Girardeau Air Festival earlier this year.       

Sammy Mason, youngest member of the U.S. National Aerobatic Team and third generation aerobatic pilot, thrilled the crowds in his Pitts S-1S.    

The incomparable Patty Wagstaff, a favorite of The Aero Experience, brought her crisp, precision aerobatic performance to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016.  Patty has established the Patty Wagstaff Aerobatic School at her home airport in St. Augustine, Florida, offering aerobatic and pilot confidence courses year-round.
