Iceman Posted June 22, 2022 Report Share Posted June 22, 2022 As I age, memories from my youth seem to be becoming more vivid. One I had lately was at about 5 or 6 years old (early 70’s) during the Calgary Stampede. I remember being in the grandstands at Night with my parents as a Bell 47 flew back and forth over the event. Dangling below the helicopter was a person on a trapeze, it was an awe inspiring sight and sound especially at night. Has anyone else seen this? I did some research and came up with some pictures from the 1957 Calgary Stampede. ”This 1957 photograph shows Sandy Winters and Larry Ruhl with their pilot; they performed an acrobatic act dangling from a helicopter at the Calgary Stampede PHOTO BY CALGARY HERALD FILE PHOTO /Calgary Herald archives” 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
