SWF No.12 or Dave Benson flies the flag


 Click here to check out the other photos on the Skywatch Homepage.

In April we travelled to Cummins in South Australia for an airshow. For much of the day, the skies were grey, but occasionally, the clouds would break up just a bit to let a bit of blue sky peek through. On of the highlights of the day was Dave Benson parachuting down with this massive Australian Flag attached to him. Dave is the world flag flying record holder. From memory, this flag was 100 feet x 50 feet.
