Roll Me Over - S-1-11b SS Modified by 


January 1 2013

Featured – Amateur Photographers’ Association – December 28 2012

Mike Wiskus’ passion for aviation started when he was very young. Mike’s Dad took him to his first air show at their hometown in Iowa at the age of 10. He rode his bike to the airport for two weeks straight and bugged the owner for a job washing airplanes and cleaning hangars just to be around airplanes. He traded his work for flying lessons and received his Pilot’s License on his 17th birthday.Thirty two years later, Mike has accumulated more than 24,000 flight hours and has qualified in more than 40 aircraft. Besides flying for Corporate America Mike also owns and operates a high quality aircraft maintenance and refurbishing facility in the Minneapolis area called West Metro Aviation. His real passion though is strapping himself in to one of the highest performance air show aircraft in the world. The Lucas Oil Pitts show plane.

Having just bought my D300s camera this is the day I really fell in love with my Nikon, my first time photographing an air show and the results were superb.
