High Flier
Alistair Eve is a man with an unusual job, to say the least! He is a human cannonball. Twice a day he is
fired from a cannon, normally used in battles, and is thrown through the air at nearly 80 kilometres per
hour. Hes a real crowd-pleaser, but its not as easy as it looks. Alistair admits that its a tough job that
requires a lot of concentration and perfect timing.
Alistair comes from a long line of circus performers and grew up under the Big Top. His father was a
clown, bringing tears of laughter to generations of children and his mother was a daring trapeze artist.
Naturally, Alistair wanted to keep up the tradition and follow in his familys footsteps. Like his mum, he
has always had a passion for danger and decided that human cannonball was the career for him.
To do his act, Alistair climbs into the cannon and carefully positions himself. Then air is pumped inside
the barrel at high pressure. As he flies into mid-air he has to keep his body as tight as possible and land on
his back in the safety net. Its all over in a matter of seconds, but getting it right takes years of training
and a high level of skill.
In over a decade of performing Alistair has never had a serious accident. Just a few bumps and bruises,
he says, laughing. Still, after seeing how fast and high he goes, I intend to keep my feet firmly on the
ground!

e.g. Alistair performs his act two times a day.
