Bonus Question: Name your favorite airshow performer (or performance, if you don't know the artist's name). Now, don't everyone reflexively say Italy's Count Emilio Ponticelli; great though he was, there are other airshow stars in the heavens, such as Erik Edgren or the late greats, Vern Dahlman and Eddie Andrenni. Include your own name if you like; after all, airshows are all about fantasy, so why not star in your own acro act? Tell us: Who or what do you love in the aerial circus world?
