The popular Extra Duo Display Team, often known as ‘Little and Large’ have announced on their Facebook page that 2022 was their last display season. For 10 years, the pairing of Chris Burkett and Mike Williams have astounded airshow audiences with their unique synchronised which brought together a full-sized Extra 300S flown by Chris with Mike Williams flying his Radio-Controlled Extra model in perfect unison. The display debuted at the Little Gransden Air & Car Show and went on to be performed at some iconic venues such as Biggin Hill and Duxford. We wish them well with their future endeavours.
The full statement from their Facebook page is below:
“We need to start by saying a huge thank you to everyone we have met and who has come and enjoyed our displays over the last 10 years.
Sadly we, the team, have made the decision to finish our displays after the 2022 season due to personal commitments and the general logistics of making the display work.
It has been a great achievement and total pleasure for us, not only to bring something as individual and unique to the Airshow circuit but also to have had the response that has been received and friendships that have been made from all of the people we have met along the way.
With thanks to all of the show organisers, staff and helpers, supporters and followers. This will always be a great memory for us and hopefully you all too.
We have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our journey and have been blessed with blue skies and great times.”
