Mike Wiskus in a dive with the smoke generator on as he runs through a series of amazing loops, turns, spins, climbs and dives over the Richard Russell Airport in Rome, Georgia on Sunday. This was one of the fantastic demonstrations included in the Wings over North Georgia Air Show which we went to see. The “Super Stinker” Pitts S1-11B shown here, was the last design of the famous Pitts Special line of aerobatic airplanes.
As a 2002 U.S. National Aerobatic Champion, and a member of the 2004 U.S. Aerobatic Team, Mike Wiskus has traveled the World with the same aircraft we saw him performing in at the air show.
