Airshow takes viewers behind the scenes to the most dangerous part-time profession on the planet. From the ground it looks glamorous, but every year more air show pilots are killed than in any other job in the entertainment industry. To survive on the circuit you need to be part salesman, part stuntman and part crazy. The harder you push on the ground and in the air, the more likely you are to succeed. But push too hard and you will crash. Airshow follows the lives of producers, performers and technicians through the season as they face breakdowns, bad weather and each other’s egos. It is hard to believe this is a job people are dying to do!
