In addition to the military demonstrations, there were also civilian aerobatics. This wingwalker was quite impressive. You couldn't get me to do that ... ever. Fly in an open-cockpit biplane? Sure. It would be fun. Hanging from the wire supports during take-off with no straps holding me in? No way! Climbing around on a fabric covered plane in mid-air where a wrong step will put my foot through the wing? No chance in you know where! It was fun to watch, but I wouldn't want to do it myself.
