Breitling Wingwalkers Preview, Sion Airshow 2011

A short clip (preview) with flying sequences of the Wingwalkers filmed the Friday at the Breitling Sion Airshow.

The Wingwalkers perform a breathtaking sequence of acrobatic manoeuvres and handstands whilst strapped to the top wings of the team’s beautiful Boeing Stearman biplanes.

The team pilots fly the aircraft through a well rehearsed energetic routine of dazzling aerobatics and close formation flypasts as the wingwalkers wave at the crowd. These manoeuvres include, loops, rolls, stall turns and even inverted flight! During all of this, the wingwalkers experience speeds of up to 150 mph and ‘G’ forces of up to 4G. More infos here :

Filmed and edited by Yannick Barthe, Shot in XDCAM EX. Not graded (no color correction). Music by Chris Haigh.
