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!

EXTRA,,,,EXTRA, JUST IN FROM JOANNE: THE ORIGINAL AIDA.

I have wanted picture of this act for a long time.

AIDA, "THE GIRL IN THE MOON"
This is the Walkmirs who did a great Perch Act before building this rigging & frameing the act. Of all the Airplane & Rocket Acts, this one had the most spectacular special effects.

OK -- now with "Celeste", was that an original plane or was it passed-down from another act.

This rigging was passed to Harvey & Hennie Luxem ????(I can never remember their last name), she worked it first using the name Aida, then changed it to Celeste. The rigging then went to Jacquline, where Jon(Tarzan), converted it to a Rocket, it then went to Surge, & Stevie Scott Corona, then back to Jacquline, and of course now belongs to one of the Anstasinis.

I wonder if Giovani has photos of all the different versions of the rigging.
