Franklin’s Flying Circus

Comedy Act

Kyle and Liz Franklin will perform this unique comedy act.

As Liz gets ready to perform in her Piper Super Cub…she jumps out to check the tail wheel.  When a spectator (aka Kyle) jumps into the plane and takes off into the air.  He leaves her and the audience stunned as they watch the plane perform jaw dropping maneuvers.
