It is with deepest sadness that we have to announce the death of Angus Buchanan yesterday.
An active and long-standing display pilot with the Stampe Formation Team, Angus was an extremely experienced and talented aviator and engineer with many flying hours under his belt.
We have all lost a very dear friend who leaves a gap in all of our lives that can never be filled and all of our thoughts are now with his family to whom we send our most sincere and deepest condolences.
The Stampe formation display team is an airshow act in the finest traditions of classical barnstorming aviation from the 1930s and 40s. The formation of 4 open cockpit, aerobatic bi-planes fly at speeds of up to 130 mph and turn tightly in close formation to remain in front of the crowd throughout the entire routine.
The team can appear as a 4 or 3 ship formation or as a pair of bi-planes to suit the individual nature of your event and can include an accomplished solo aerobatic display if required. With the short field landing capabilities of the Stampe bi-plane, we can land in the smallest of strips to be a colourful presence on the ground at your display.
The show includes exciting formation changes, dynamic breaks and a series of tail chases that has a history of entertaining crowds that stretches back for almost 50 years.
If you would like to see what we could add to your display, contact us and to discuss a tailor made formation routine to suit your event.
