EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019: Airshows - Gene Soucy
The Aero Experience continues our year-long coverage of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019, sponsored by Elite Aviation, with this look at airshow performer Gene Soucy. Soucy is a legend in aerobatics, having joined the U.S. Aerobatic Team at age 22, assisting the team in winning its first World Title. He became three-time U.S. and Canadian National Champion, and began his airshow career in 1968. Soucy flew Pitts S-1S, BD-4, Bellanca Decathlon, Piper Cub and Cessna 150 before the current Showcat (modified Grumman Ag-Cat) and Extra 300S. He has flown with the Red Devil and Eagle Aerobatic Teams and has flown in many movie scenes as well. Here are some views of Gene Soucy as he flew in the EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019 Monday airshow.
