12th Year on Airshow Circuit

Quicksilver MXL II Sport pilot Bob Essell and wing walker Jon Faulkner have been wowing airshow crowds for 12 years with their aerial act. Flying a modified Sport II registered in the Experimental category-Exhibition, Essell says that allows them to use the Sport II for compensation and hire.

On November 1-3, the duo planned to end their twelfth season on the airshow circuit by participating in the Santo Domingo airshow in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. "We had to build a special crate to send our plane by FedEx," says Essell, "The Sport II is already down there, so we'll see how good a packing job we did. We'll perform once a day during the 3-day airshow, which marks the end of our twelfth year of wing walking."
