Maitland's first air show in 10 years

From the Maitland Mercury report:
Maitland is to have its first air show in 10 years, with all the barnstorming thrills of the 1930s on display.
Known as the Hunter Valley Air Show at Maitland Airport, one of the highlights will be a unique flight performed by local aerobatic expert Paul Bennet in a Pitts Special.
This involves the plane skimming across the ground at low level – low enough for a motorcyclist to loop over the top of it. It is a stunt Mr Bennet arranged and only he is flying it.
Mr Bennet is organising the show for July 4 and 5.
