It's getting busy around AirShowBuzz (the new ASB.TV) as we prepare for an awesome air show season with some of the hottest performers in the industry.
Michael Goulian will be jockeying for a spot on the podium at the first Red Bull Air Race in Abu Dhabi at the end of the month, plus preparing for a stellar air show season in the new ASB Extra 330. Meanwhile, ASB.TV's Rob Reider lives the dream, jumping with the Golden Knights, flying with the Blue Angels, and hitting the best air shows in the country.
The Horsemen will storm the season with a new twist right out of the gate. We'll have more in the April newsletter, but the Horsemen will be flying an incredible Naval combination of F8F Bearcats and an F4U Corsair.
Most of us can only dream of wearing a blue flightsuit and climbing into a blue and gold F/A-18 belonging to the world famous USN Blue Angels. Announcer Rob Reider shares his incredible flight with lead solo LCDR Frank Weisser in his weekly blog.
After flying, Rob chatted with LCDR Weisser for AirShowCast before heading off to NECAS where he learned a little more about Dan Hollowell, the Director of Operations for the International Council of Air Shows.
Team Goulian has been very busy since our January newsletter. Michael's new plane design is red hot and ready to soar. His slick new ASB Extra 330SC will be dazzling air show fans around the country this season. Keep your eyes peeled for it and check out the exclusive photos on ASB.TV.
The team has also been gearing up for Michael's first Red Bull Air Race of 2010. The race will be held March 26-27 in Abu Dhabi. You can read the latest news on the races at ASB.TV and follow Team Green and Michael as he looks for his next victory.
Don't wait until it's too late to join the growing number of air show fans who own a Horsemen hat. The "Friedkin", "Beasley", and "Shipley" hats are on sale for $15. These popular hats were originally $23 so snatch one up while they last.
We've listened to our members and now this popular front page feature will showcase both pros and amateurs alike. Each month, we'll take the best shots from amongst our membership. It doesn't matter the size of the camera or how many shows you attend...give it your best shot!
