SARASOTA - International circus star and comic daredevil Bello Nock will hang from one foot on a trapeze, which will hang from a helicopter as it flies over Sarasota on Thursday.
Nock, whose tall stalk of blond hair makes him instantly recognizable, will perform the stunt as high as 500 feet above the ground between 11:30 a.m. and noon near 12th Street and Tuttle Avenue.
The public is invited to attend the free aerial performance by Nock, a Sarasota native who is headlining this year's circus performances.
The helicopter will be flying over the Circus Sarasota big top tent — again erected across 12th Street from Ed Smith Stadium — to herald the show's annual winter engagement from Feb. 10 to 26.
Nock has performed the stunt over the Statue of Liberty in New York and now will do it in his hometown.
Tickets for all Circus Sarasota performances are available online at circussarasota.org, by calling 355-9085, or at the box office adjacent to the big top. Circus Sarasota is a nonprofit group dedicated to preserving and enhancing Sarasota's circus legacy and offering community outreach programs
