Spectacular acts frame 40th company anniversary

Extra Aircraft

This was a doozie of the first order! On August 21st, 2021 Extra Aircraft company owner and –founder Walter Extra had issued an invitation to folks from all over the aviation industry, partners and clients, as well as good friends and long-time companions to join him at Dinslaken airfield for the celebration of the 40th anniversary of his enterprise, and to look ahead into the future together.

Many people from from all over the aviation industry, partners, clients, good friends, and long-time companions joinde Walter Extra for the celebration of the 40th anniversary of his enterprise.

Walter’s hospitality is legend, and so more than 300 guests arrived on this warm summer’s evening to celebrate life and to enjoy food, drink, and music while having a good time together.

“Tools of the trade“

But Extra wouldn’t be Extra had he not had some very special aces up his sleeve for his invitees.

The afternoon started with young talents from the sectors of model airplane flying and the ever more popular category of recreational drone flying entertaining invited visitors by giving spectacular demonstrations of their leisure activities. Leading further into the summer evening’s twilight, guests were treated to this special kind of top-class aerobatics which, frankly, one can only expect to come across here, deep inside the core of the aerobatics universe.

This part of the celebration started with a heart-stopping performance by ex Patrouille-de-France pilot Francois Rallet who kept onlookers on their toes with his presentation.

Following nightfall, British aerobatics ace Mark Jefferies was the next act in Walter Extra’s entertainment programme by thrilling the audience with an aerobatics show at night. Covered in a shower of sparks from pyrotechnic devices installed in his Extra SC and combined with further LED lighting and smoke, Mark offered an aerobatics experience of the highest class which surely many of the attendees, including many industry insiders, had never ever seen before.

But like they say, “the best was yet to come”! Around nine at night, Walter Extra finally brought his excellent connections into the world of pyrotechnics to bear. And so, after dark, two top artists in this field conjured up a so-called “pyro musical” in the skies above the northwestern Ruhr district, which was nothing short of spectacular. As far away as in the city of Essen, people on the ground were mesmerized by the perfect harmony of fireworks and music, from classical all the way to pop tunes, a never before seen pyrotechnics display which came second to none, not even the well renowned New Year’s Eve fireworks in Sydney, so phantastic was the show.

Dinslaken airfield is where Extra Aircraft is rooted, a place that they have called home for 40 years now. The Extra brand is not just a melodic name in aerobatics around the globe, but the company has always been and continues to be a reliable partner to service and maintain their clients’ turboprop or piston-powered aircraft, as well.

Party guests at the night were grateful for this outstanding summer evening. And so were the victims of the recent flooding in Germany when, on the night, partygoers contributed 5,200.00 Euros in donations to the relief effort.

Truly a feast for sense and the senses that has delighted everyone. So, here’s to the next forty years of Extra Aircraft!
