Mitch McAleer Sets Looping Record
World Aerobatic Champion Mitch McAleer broke the world looping record above Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janiero, Brazil this past weekend. Mitch was towed to 15,000 feet by La Mouette's Gerard Thevenot with a La Mouette trike. Mitch did 76 loops to the delight of a huge crowd. There were lots of TV and newspaper cameras present to record the milestone. Mitch flew a Fusion 150 and said "It was easy, my arms aren't even sore".
