Sean Tucker Oracle Challenger

    Newer Older

    This plane is a lot of fun to watch. Lots of crazy acrobatics.

    Info from the program: Since beginning his air show career in the mid-70s, Sean Tucker has flown more than 700 performances at more than 300 air shows, in front of more than 60 million fans. In the upcoming season alone, Tucker and Team Oracle will entertain nearly 10 million fans at 25 shows throughout North America. "I like to think that I bring the fans' dreams of flying into the plane with me, and there's nowhere I'd rather be than in the cockpit. That's why I train so hard to keep the edge!" Sean has logged over 20,000 hours flying, which if done all at once, would take over two years, 24 hours a day. In 2003, he was named one of the 25 "Living Legends of Flight" by the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum.

      Really great shot, but it do look scary, though.
