1957 Skyblazers and Black Arrows original footage

Post  skyblazer3 on Sun Sep 12, 2010 6:27 pm

They don't make air shows like this anymore. I was talking with the Horseman lead Jim Beasley this summer about how my father was a Skyblazer back in the 1950s. Beasley seemed really nostalgic for that time, and commented that those were the days of real air shows, and what we have today hardly compares to the greatness of those days. In this video, shot in 1957, you can see what he was talking about. This video features the Skyblazers, the Italians in F-84Fs, the French in the Mystere IV, and the 111 Black Arrows.... some of the greatest aerobatic teams of all time.

Thanks for the video, skyblazer3.

It's so easy to feel nostalgia for a world I never knew... such low passes! and so many thin young handsome pilots! I hate to say it, but today's airshows pale in comparison, too many carnival tricks, fair food and nascar-showmanship, and not enough good old fashioned formation flying!

amirite?
