'Sky Divers' to Be at... Air Show June 23 Colors: Red Patent Black Patent Black Leather Bone White HO 5-8851 U. S. Army 'Sky Divers' will be a feature at the big free air show at Civic Memorial Airport, June 23, where more than 100,000 spectators are expected. A sky jumper, known as t h e "Amazing Batman," will leap into space 2 miles over the airport, wearing a bird-winged suit, and maneuver about the sky like a giant eagle and at 1,000 feet above the ground will release his chute and float to a landing in front of the spectators. A jump team from the National Air Shows will descend, carrying a large 50-star flag to the ground. The show is being conducted in cooperation with the Missouri Air National Guard that is celebrating its 40th anniversary that weekend. Two day of events, June 21 and 22, have been planned at Lambert Field by the guard. The show at Civic Memorial will include acrobatic aircraft, displays of antique and experimental aircraft, smoke writing and precision maneuvering. Harold Krier, three-time AAA acrobatic champion, will perform 44 precision maneuvers in a 15- minute period. He will then fly low over the runway, in an upside down position, and pluck a ribbon from between two cane poles. Acrobatics will be performed in a light plane by Charles Hillard, 1959-60 AAA light plane champion. "How Not to Fly," will be a comedy act with a pilot flying low over the field putting Us plane through intricate maneuvers. In another low flying act, 50 feet over the field, a stuntman will ride on the top wing of a bi- wing aircraft as the plane is being put through loops and rolls. Spin Drop An airplane with a "dead" en- ine, at 6,000 feet, will spin to 600 feet and the pilot will then put the plane through loops, rolls, and hen land the craft on the runway —on one wheel. An aerial stunt man will transfer from a speeding automobile on the runway to an airplane with i rope ladder attached to it and hen will do a hankie pick-up from the ground, from the ladder. A plane with colored smoke emitting from the wing tips and engine exhaust will perform "Rhapsody in Smoke," a precision air dance. Two airplanes in formation, will perform rolls, figure eights, and loops. Dick Schramm and Bob Hoover, two nationally-known acrobatic flyers, will also be on the program. Col. Robert L. Smith of the Missouri Air National Guard said he hopes to include in the show a tanker refueling jets over the airport, but, he said the demonstration may have to be left out because of the length of the program. Refreshments, restroom and parking facilities have been set up for the show.
