In just 10 days, Brent Handy and other pilots will be suiting up and strapping in to show off high above Duluth.
The Duluth Air Show gets underway August 23 and 24, and Handy gave us a sneak peek at his new plane.
"She doesn't have a name quite yet, but I've called her some creative ones once and awhile as I was learning to fly it," Handy said.
Handy is with the Canadian Snowbirds and he'll be showing off his Pitts Special Plane. It has a propeller which allows him to pull off intense maneuvers.
"Standing on the ground, you're a two dimensional being...but being up in the air, especially an airplane like the Pitts, you're tumbling," Handy said. "You're rolling around."
This 20-year pilot said taking off is addicting and when he's in the pilot's seat the challenge is never complete.
"There's always a goal in aviation to strive for and you can ever be quite as good as you want to be," Handy said.
Handy was at the Duluth Air Show in 2012, but this is the first year he's flying with this plane.
