The Lakeland, Fla. Air Show, Sun-‘n Fun, is going on this weekend. LOTS of planes over there, (see posts by @mattbablitz) but I bet they don’t have anything like this Igor Benson flying boat. You could have seen it at Cypress Gardens a few years ago – Red McGuire flew it on special occasions, but it’s wrapped in mothballs in his son’s warehouse now. #waterskiing #waterskishows #flyingboat #igorbenson #showskiing #cypressgardens #classicphotography #lifeonthewater (at Cypress Gardens, Florida)

The Trio act was a staple of the Cypress Gardens ski shows for a long time before the coming of “strap” doubles. This is Wanda Imber being escorted by Johnny Roberts and Donald Morris… #waterskiing #waterskishows #trioact #waterskitrio #cypressgardens #lifeonthewater #waterskilife #lifeofashowskier #waterskiworld (at Cypress Gardens, Winter Haven, Florida)

A special shout-out today to all show ski drivers, whether manning the safety/pickup boats or any of the towboats, inboards, single, double and triple rigs. You keep us safe, help us improve our skills and lead the way in the shows. Without you we’d still be sitting on the dock. THANK YOU drivers!!! – Now, tighten up those patterns… 😎 #showskiing #waterskiing #boatdrivers #waterskishows #lifeofaboatdriver #showskilife #waterskilife #lifeonthewater (at Cypress Gardens, Winter Haven, Florida)
