For a look at what it’s like to be in a stunt plane at the Abbotsford Airshow, check out this video of an acrobatic flight in a 1950’s military aircraft.
Flying in an Airshow Stunt Plane
Geoff took me up for a birds-eye preview of his performance a couple of days prior to the 2017 Abbotsford Airshow. Wow, what an experience it was!
Watch the video and enjoy the view!

About the Stunt Plane Trip
On Wednesday, August 9, 2017, I was invited by the Abbotsford International Airshow to join pilot Geoff Latter on a flight a couple of days prior to his main show. It was a blast!
The plane we flew in was a 1958 Chinese Nanchang CJ-6A and the experience was unbelievable!
As you can see from the video, I was in the two-seater aircraft for a rollover and a full loop. Wow, what a thrill that was! I also got to experience the amazing views, and what 4Gs of gravity feels like.
Also as you can see in the video, when we started the loop and hit the 4Gs my camera became so incredibly heavy I couldn’t hold it up.
Thanks Geoff Latter for the amazing flight and once-in-a-lifetime experience!
