Replacement Strikemaster Brought To Air Show Ready In Just 10
On February 26, 2011 a tragic accident destroyed Dragon
Aviation's air show aircraft "The Dragon". Now just a little over
two months later Dragon Aviation is proud to announce that "The
Dragon" has returned.
New Strikemaster "The Dragon"
Dragon Aviation debuted "The Dragon" at The JSOH Air Show at
Andrews Air Force Base on May 20 to 22.
"It took a monumental effort to find a replacement aircraft and
then to transform it into "The Dragon" in just 10 weeks,"
said Andy Anderson President of Dragon Aviation. "There are
not many Strikemasters left in the world, much less in good enough
condition to be able to be put on the air show circuit. Linda and I
would like to thank all of our friends that volunteered to help,
working long hours nearly seven days per week, the support and help
we received was overwhelming.
"I would personally like to thank my partner Jerry and most of
all, my wife Linda for all of the support and the hard work it took
to get this aircraft ready," he said.
