Skydiver drops in for show
MARTY Miller can't wait to plunge from an airplane thousands of feet above the Rockhampton Showgrounds and parachute to the ground holding a giant Australian flag.
The skydiver from Sky Warriors will be one of seven new amazing entertainment groups who will be at the Rocky Show this June.
And if a man plummeting from the heavens with an Aussie flag streaming behind him doesn't do it for you, Marty will also join motocross riders who jump through flames, wrestlers, minibike stunt drivers, monster trucks, dancers and comedians at the show.
But the veteran skydiver is not sure who is more excited, him or show-goers.
“I love doing these shows, but I haven't been to Rocky for a long time,” he said.
“I've been doing it for 32 years, you'd think I'd know better by now.
“There's only six of us in Australia who can do it with the flag.
“So it's pretty rare to see.”
And if Marty or any of the other daredevil shows aren't big enough drawcards for you, don't forget about sideshow alley and those delicious dagwood dogs.
The Rocky Show will be on from June 7 to June 9.
