Above, Skip has already clipped the top, 16-ft. pink ribbon, and, on his second pass, is cutting the green 10-ft. high  ribbon as Bob Cox snapped this photo from his position right on the edge of the runway.

Skip's finale was to make two passes, flying sideways at a 45 degree angle, first cutting a ribbon 16 ft. above the deck, between poles held by volunteers (above), then cutting a second 10 ft. high ribbon on another pass.

Skip performed with Paul Stender, racing and laying down smoke.
