Fleet Week: A look at aerobatic stunt planes


SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Fleet Week is kicking into full gear Friday as the Blue Angels are just hours away from their first Air Show.

KRON4’s Will Tran spent the morning at the Oakland airport getting an upclose look at some of the planes, including the aerobatic stunt planes.

“They may be fierce and powerful but I’m sleek and fast,” said aerobatic stunt plane pilot Mike Wiskus.

“We do some things hopefully people have never seen an airplane do before,” Wiskus said. “We actually take the airplane and tumble it end over end.”


The Blue Angels Air Show is scheduled for Friday October 7, Saturday October 8 and Sunday October 9.

KRON4 will broadcast the 2016 Fleet Week air show and Blue Angels Live on Saturday October 8 from 2-4 p.m.
