Des and DES at North Shore 7-1-2017

Chris Opperman was at North Shore last Saturday and captured a couple of really neat shots of Des Barry preparing for an aerobatic sortie in his Vans RV 7 ZK-DES3.

Des strapped in and ready to go with all the gear.  I reckon this is a great photo with the sky reflecting in his helmet and the instrument panel in the visor. The helmet is a customised Pilot X model from Bonehead Composites, as used by several Red Bull Air Race pilots.

On take off showing the aerobatics grid on the canopy.  Des is pretty serious about aerobatics!
