Chris Sperou is a former multiple Australian aerobatic champion and was one of the performers at the Melton Airshow 2010 held to celebrate the centenary of powered flight in Australia.
Melton Airport in Victoria is close to the location of the first powered flight which was done by the famous American escapologist, Harry Houdini, at Diggers Rest.
Chris Sperou is shown here, inverted in his Pitts Special aircraft in a close mirror formation with the other aircraft of his formation team – a Beechcraft Debonair.
The photo was taken with a Nikon D70 camera fitted with a Sigma 50-500mm 1:4-6.3 APO DG HS zoom lens.
The photo was tweaked using Gimp software – select/copy/paste tools to remove some imperfections and brightness/contrast tool and sharpening filter.
