Vertical Challenge 2009 Airshow – Saturday, June 20, 2009

verticalchallenge2008.jpgOne of our favorite local airshow events – a unique helicopter airshow – is hosted by the Hiller Aviation Museum every year at San Carlos Airport.

I’ve been fortunate to attend the last couple of years – here are some photos from the 2008 and 2007 editions.

The photo on the left is the Eurocopter Messerschmitt Bölkow Blohm Bo-105 CBS fully aerobatic helicopter flown by Chuck Aaron of the Red Bull team. Aaron is the first and only civilian pilot to be licensed by the Federal Aviation Administration to perform aerobatics in a helicopter.

This year’s Vertical Challenge 2009 is being held on Saturday, June 20th. Details are available at the Hiller Aviation Museum web site. Hope to see you there!
