Eagles In Aerobatic Flight... Updated, Aggressive, Exciting! While many might assume that the sight of two Eagles in aerobatic flight was something that had been seen/done been before, two guys are out to prove you wrong. Red Eagles delivers a spectacular airshow... and their uniquely modified Eagles deliver the goods -- which is why when these guys flew over Cecil Field, ALL eyes were turned skyward. The two guys behind the Red Eagles are Dan McClung and Buck Roetman... Aero-TV met up with them at the Alan Henley Benefit Airshow at Cecil Field last April and came away impressed with what two guys and some highly modified Eagles can do... especially when they're obviously having the times of the their lives. Dan McClung is the Team leader and pilot of the 'Talon' Eagle. Dan got his start flying airplanes for the US Navy and has over 35 years of professional flying.
