Will Fly Next Weekend In Waterloo, IA. Two Air Shows Booked In
It has been a long road back for Kyle Franklin. But now, seven
months after the tragic accident which eventually claimed his wife
Amanda, Kyle has announced on Facebook that he is returning to the
air show circuit.
"For those of you that have not heard by now, I'm going to
be back out on the airshow circuit next weekend in Waterloo, IA
with the Comedy Act," Kyle wrote on his factbook page. "I will also
do two more shows this year, Ft. Smith, AR - October 1-2 and Ft.
Worth, TX Alliance Airshow - October 22-23. Both will be with the
Cub. I am also starting to book for the 2012 season. Looking
forward to a full season with the Comedy Act.
"Hope to see some of you out there,
Kyle has not performed since experiencing engine trouble in his
Waco biplane during a wing-walking act with Amanda at an air show
in March. While she managed to get back into the airplane before it
went down, the post-crash fire burned both of the performers badly.
Amanda passed away in May as the result of her injuries.
The Franklin Flying Circus website describes the comedy act with
the cub as a "one-of-a kind wild and crazy comedy act (casting)
Kyle Franklin as Ben Whabnaski, the annoying drunk who wants his
airplane ride that was promised to him. Much different from your
typical flying farmer routine, this routine will get everyone on
their feet and roaring with laughter. The effort and skill Kyle
displays is amazing to say the least. Most pilots only put a
wingtip on the ground during ground loops. Kyle Franklin does it
for fun so often, that his cub needs skid plates taped on the
wingtips! This is truly a show stealing act."
