The lady in the sky

In late November I came across a video on Youtube of a Russian lady aviator pulling some serious G’s, which I found beyond impressive. The lady in question is 7-time world aerobatic champion Svetlana Kapanina of whom I am now a fan and after viewing the following video and links, the reader will no doubt join me in our admiration of this very talented lady.

 

The original is a 32-minute video and the action starts mid way through the clip, it is noteworthy that at one point in the routine the brave lady appears to be having a calm conversation on the radio while executing some serious moves.

 

I have edited the video to 14-minutes, however this link will direct the reader to the original video

 

These links will take the reader to Ms. Kapanina’s web site,  Facebook page and YouTube page.
