Cable Airshow 2009
Rob Harrison, the Tumbling Bear returns!

Rob Harrison returned to the air show scene at the Cable Airshow. He was badly injured in a crash at the Modesto Airshow in May of 2008. At the time, doctors said he would walk again for another 2 more years. Rob's persistence, coupled with the support of his wife Susan, amazed the doctors, and all of the air show fans by not only walking way sooner than expected, but by flying shows once again. Welcome back Rob! We all missed you.

Rob climbs into the cockpit for his first airshow performance since May of 2008.

Is this part of the pre-flight checklist?

Rob smiles triumphantly as he pulls the strap on his helmet.

A welcome back kiss from his wife, Susan.

A wave to the cheering crowd.

Signing autographs and meeting the crowd.

Rob loves talking to the kids.
