Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

THE FLYING ZACCHINIS #3


I heard an announcer introduce this trick as, "The ever dangerous & difficult Passing Leap, two flyers passing in mid-air, simultaneously at the same time"! The amazing thing to me is no matter how many times audiences have seen this done, it never fails to bring gasps. Here is Eddie doing a forward somersault over his sister Duina.

I've always loved the flying act. Pure circus poetry, as exemplified here by the Zacchinis. The act were wondrous to behold then, working at the higher altitudes. Beautiful shots.

I have to say, as much as the quality of many acts has gone to pot, the Flying Acts have maintained, & even raised the standards of performance. Now if they would only use some music that is befitting the beauty of the act, like "Wedding Of The Winds".
