Regarding this, he first purchased the shrike commander in 1979, and showed his exceptional talent by demonstrating sixteen-point rolls and loops followed by a clean no engine maneuver with a loop and another roll. He also ended the show by landing one wheel first and then the other and finally taxied the craft back to its parking spot. It was an astonishing performance for everyone watching.

Wally Schirra also had a house in Kauai, so he must have appreciated the beauty of our islands.
