Aerobatics at Fowlmere

February 20, 2023

You spin us right 'round, baby, right 'round

Like a record, baby, right 'round, 'round, 'round

Paddy and Lucky had a thrilling day on Wednesday January 19th. They journeyed to Fowlmere airfield in The UK, home of the British Aerobatic Academy. Today, they were going to turn the world upside down! Paddy and Lucky got on their parachutes and strapped into G-EEEK, one of two Extra 200 aircraft owned by the school. Harnesses secure and engine warmed up, they took off from the beautiful grass runway, climbing up to 5000 ft. The weather was crisp, clear and extremely cold which made for perfect conditions in which fly some loops and rolls over the frosty Cambridge countryside. After some initial trepidation about all that g force, they soon got into the groove and whooped for joy as they spun, dived, and rolled in the Extra. As the sun set, they returned to base to steady their feet!
