    His name is Kyle Franklin son of the late Jimmy Franklin who was killed in the 2005 Saskatchewan Centennial Airshow along with Bobby Younkin.
    Actually Kyle was announcing his fathers and Bobbys stunt when the accident happend and he watched his father perish.

    This brings to mind the saying about old pilots and bold pilots.

    My brothere's friend, when the kid was about 16, did a similar routine at air shows. It was not a drunk routine, but a goofy kid in cut-off jeans and his base ball cap on backwards. He would wander out of the crowd, out to a plane parked at the gas pumps. The plane would not be a piper, but an F4U, or a Mustang. Last time I saw him he was here in Houston, selling industrial air compressors.

    Beyond impressive.

    It being dangerous and fun, it's going to be banned sooner or later. Count on it.
