Air Show a success, but Birdman fails to fly
PHUKET: The Phuket White Sand and Blue Sky Air Show at Surin Beach on Saturday (February 25) went ahead minus the main act: stunt flyer and ‘Birdman’ Jari Kuosma, whose act fell through at the last minute.

Birdman was meant to land on Surin beach wearing his bird suit, but on the day the plane he was meant to be riding in pulled out, and a replacement one could not be found.
With Birdman’s act cancelled, members of the public were instead left to watch veteran stunt pilots Les Vorosmarthy, in his Extra 300.
