The 4th of July in Excelsior is an all-day event. From a 10K beginning 8 a.m. to fireworks capping the night off, there isn’t a dull moment. For the second year in a row an air show took place. This year adding a vintage bi-plane.
Returning for a second year was Michael Wiskus, an internationally known pilot whose death-defying maneuvers wow and amaze crowds around the world. Pulling up to 10 G forces at least 25 times during a 15-minute performance, Wiskus says he couldn’t imagine doing anything else.
I had a chance to ride with Wiskus the past two years, but this was the first year I saw him perform in an actual show. The bi-plane had better light so there are more images of that.
