“I imagine that it’s something like taking drugs,” says Bill Finagin, Pitts Special Pilote Incroyable. The affable, energetic 68-year-old (who looks and acts 15 years younger) is talking about mounting up in his favorite aerial steed—the Pitts S2C. “It’s a difficult relationship to tell somebody about,” he says with a chuckle, “but when I get into that airplane, I’m that kid in the big candy store for the first time. I’ve never had a flight in a Pitts I haven’t loved.”
