Skytypers Prepare for Ocean City Air Show

Posted:

OCEAN CITY, Md- On Friday morning, a select group of photographers and reporters will have the opportunity to fly in vintage WWII planes in preparation for the Ocean City Air Show. Each trainer plane has been equipped with cameras to record the passenger’s backseat experience during flight. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve seating early.

In honor of Father’s Day Bob and Ken Johansen, former Navy pilots, will be attending the event.

The media are also welcome to cover the Skytypers' performance at the OC Air Show on June 14 and 15. Arrive at the OC Municipal Airport, 12724 Airport Road, Ocean City, MD at 8:30-9 a.m.for the flight. There will also be a safety brief and an interview.

The Skytypers will be providing low altitude drives and close formation broll shots from the plane’s vantage point. The six remaining SNJ-2s have even been updated with more modern technology. The team creates giant messages in the sky that can be seen from all directions.

Guests will have a chance to take photos of the suit-up process, in flight shots, as well as take off and landing shots.

To book your seat please contact Brenda Little at Blittle@BBIGMarketing.com or (813) 391-4542.

In addition to photo opportunities, guests will also get a glimpse at the North American SNJ-2, and witness the Skytypers' precise formation techniques.

“Most of our team earned their wings in the military and this performance pays tribute to the brave pilots of the ‘Greatest Generation,’” says Steve Kapur, a Skytper pilot. “We consider it a privilege to fly these warbirds on behalf of GEICO at air shows all across the U.S.”
