Pilots Hone Their Skills For Upcoming Airshow Season.

Early morning anglers are treated to the spectacle of four T6 Harvard
Aircraft from The Flying Lions Aerobatic Team water skiing across the
Klipdrift Dam near Johannesburg South Africa.

Lead by Scully Levin, with wing man Arnie Meneghelli, Stewart Lithgow and
Ellis Levin, this renown air show display team rehearse a sequence for
the newly launched “Aviation Action” television program on Supersport. Arnie Meneghelli
from Academy Brushware, owner of the aircraft had this to say, “What we
did today I believe is a world first. It illustrates that South African
air show pilots are amongst the best in the world”.

This unusual act, approved by the South African Civil Aviation Authority
(CAA), and supported by Castrol Aviation, was meticulously planned and
took place under the watchful eye of divers and paramedics that were on site.
