The legendary Flying Lions will take to the skies at the Newcastle Airshow
The Newcastle Airshow returns to Kwazulu Natal on the 30th of May 2015 and Legendary Flying Lions will take to the skies.
The Eqstra Flying Lions team, comprising of aerobatic stalwarts Scully Levin, Arnie Meneghelli, Stewart Lithgow and Ellis Levin, regularly grab headlines with their daring feats and magnificent aerial displays in their four T6 Harvard aircraft at airshows around South Africa. The Newcastle Airshow is sponsored by Eqstra Holdings; a JSE listed company leasing and rental provider, and industrial, construction and mining quipment importer and distributor. They are also a major player in the opencast contact mining and plant rental
“Grab those binoculars and join us for a day of awe-inspiring aerial manoeuvres, heart pumping adrenalin and good old fashioned family entertainment,” says Scully Levin, team leader of the Eqstra Flying Lions. “As one of the top airshows in Kwazulu Natal, we always look forward to visiting Newcastle, and the locals never fail to turn out in their masses to support us.”
The Eqstra Flying Lions have been in operation for 24 years and are regarded as an essential act at every major airshow across the country. Scully is arguably one of the country’s most famous aerobatic display pilots, with over 32 years of air show flying under his belt and more than 2000 airshow displays to his credit. Like Hannibal from the A-Team, Scully relishes every airborne moment, and loves it “when a plan comes together”. In aviation circles, Scully’s appeal lies in the boyish excitement with which he approaches every flight and every airshow.
Tickets are available at the airshow for R60 (adults) and R30 (children)
