Two north Norfolk people have won the chance to fly with a crack aerobatics display team in a prize draw made during a loop-the-loop manoeuvre.
The Wildcat Aerobatics formation display team was a highlight of last month’s Cromer Carnival.
During the event, a prize draw for a free flight in the stunt planes was run by the Wildcat team’s main sponsor, Norwich-based SG Wealth Management.
The two winners’ names were drawn from hundreds of entries by Helen Winslow, of SG Wealth, during a flight in a Wildcat biplane from their base at Old Buckenham last Friday.
During the flight, Ms Winslow was turned upside down and held there until she had pulled out the two winners’ names. They are Cameron Pitts, from Cromer, and Stephen Debbage, from North Walsham.
Cromer Carnival committee member Kate Royall flew with Wildcat Aerobatics in the run up to the carnival and has experienced the thrill of looping over Cromer Pier first hand.
She said: “It was absolutely fanastic to see the Wildcats in action on Carnival Day having flown with them in June - Cameron and Stephen are in for a treat.”
