skies Sunday at Ma son Citys airport as the ilth annual North Iowa Aviation Day lived up to advance billing with the biggest most diversified air in area history Perfect weather was a bonus with clear skies and a cooling breeze that kept the airports American flag standing out proudly throughout the day Many in the crowd stayed for every event from the time the first newlymanufactured plane in the 10 am flyby parade swept past the terminal area until the final four members of the Armys Golden Knights parachute team came to earth about 5 pm But with lesser traffic prob lems and the much longer aerial show than in recent years there also were many visitors who came for particular parts of the show only More than ever in the history of the event the emphasis was on as pilots speed ing together headon and deftly rolling around each others paths at the last instant and a para chute collapsing in midair and the jumper catching himself with a second parachute There was beauty in the air loo Thousands will remember the Royal Canadian Air Forces Red Knight flying Officer J W Morin rolling his bright red jet through shining shards of his own previous smoke trails in the morning sunshine And there was the Raven Industries orange and white balloon that bucked like a bronco trying to tear itself from the ground crew but then floated serenely in the air for many minutes looking like an oldfashioned striped lollipop against the blue sky And there were all sorts of other things Many of the thrills were offered by the National Air Shows troupe that featured prizewinning pilots Harold Krier and Charles Hillard with man Reds Didget Starting with a parachute jump act by Didget that team put on a show of flying skill and hair raising stunt work in the tra dition of the oldtime barnstorm ers but with the precision of modern trained aviators The National Air Shows pilots put their planes on end Hew them with and without engine power and put them through maneuvers those on the ground had never thought of Didget rode an airplane wing through maneuvers that had him stand ing upside down and riding in corkscrews That he did such things as skydiving and climbing into a plane by way of ladder from a speeding auto on the ground Capt Dick Schram of Glen view 111 the Flying Profes sor worked his act into the National Air Shows part of the show for comic relief The com edy was no relief from the ohs and ahs on the ground however as the profes sor sent his plane through run wayscraping stunts in his role as the man who got into the air without knowing how to fly Schram bounced into a happy landing ending however after a kind soul on the ground hand ed up landing directions from a car racing down the runway Don Piccard who made the balloon ascension accompanied by Dr Emily Frisbic of Eng land gave the crowd more than was bargained for when the wind carried the balloon off tha airport for a longer flight than had been anticipated Men of the NorthwoodKen Please turn to
