Memories- Calgary Stampede

Recommended Posts

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”
