Friday the weather rolled in black clouds over Secunda. Anticipation was in the air as The Puma Energy Flying Lions landed at the Secunda Airfield… will the show go on?
Rain fell hard and hit like bullets, visibility was less than the minimum requirement and the wind was blowing at hurricane speeds as the pilots all gathered in the Aviation Junction office enjoying a coffee waiting for the weather to pass.
At 17:45 there was a unanimous vote to rather be safe than sorry and cancelled the much-anticipated aerobatic air show.
The next morning, Saturday (29 October), the team arrived at the airfield at 08:30. With the weather cleared up and the sun that smiled down on the pilots and their aircraft, it was time to get ready for the morning’s show.
Scully Levin (No 1), Arnie Meneghelli (No 2), Ellis Levin (No 3) and Sean Thackwray (No 4) were roaring, like lions, to go just as their name suggests.
The Flying Lions are led by world-renowned aerobatic pilot, Scully Levin, who happened to have had his 72nd birthday on 29 September, rocked the crowd with fantastic aerobatic skills and amazing teamwork.
Happy belated birthday Captain Scully! Secunda cannot wait to see you and your team this weekend (5 & 6 October) entertaining us with the PITTS show! – Ané Prinsloo
