Pilot Hopes There’s No Snakes On His Plane

GUTHRIE, Okla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – For one death-defying pilot, snakes and serpents put the sting in his stunts.

Stunt pilot Kirby Chambliss flies through awe-inspiring obstacle courses at deadly speeds, but when it comes to his fear of snakes, he’s not taking any risks.

Chambliss, who has yet to see the snake-screamer Snakes on a Plane says, “People think I’m not afraid of anything, and then they find out about this and think it’s funny.”

Chambliss is currently flying in the 4th Annual Red Bull Air Race, which takes place in different harbors around the world, and is coasting into San Diego on September 22.

Competitors have to zoom through mid-air courses that they’ve never flown through, causing what Chambliss calls “an extremely dangerous rush in what’s pretty much a timed obstacle course.”

But Chambliss, who’s ranked fifth in the competition, is cruising with confidence, just as long as no snakes find their way into the cockpit.
