Steve Oliver, Pilot. Steve Oliver began his flying career as a teenager and has logged more than 13,000 flight hours in everything from helicopters to sailplanes to biplanes.

The Super Chipmunk - SkyDancer! Originally designed to serve as a trainer for the Royal Canadian Air Force, the 1956 deHavilland Chipmunk has been specially modified for Air Show aerobatics. Nearly 3,000 man-hours over a two year period were spent on developing the SkyDancer into the finest example of a Super Chipmunk. It now boasts a cruising speed of 150mph, and a range of more than 400 miles. It will climb at a rate of 2,500 feet per minute. SkyDancer is equipped with camera mounts on both wings for its Canon 35mm cameras, which are remotely activated from the cockpit.

The SkyDancer routine is tightly choreographed to music selected not only for its suitability for aerobatic maneuvers, but for its ability to add spirit and emotion to the performance. Visually, the white smoke pouring from the exhaust compliments the aircraft's patriotic graphics, including the distinctive checkerboard treatment of its tail and under wings.
