And you should post it here, too.

The plane appears to be a Pitts Special - a quite tiny, single-seat, highly aerobatic biplane that was for years the airframe of choice in competitive aerobatics.

Nope, that was definitely real.

Nuts, but real.

I used to do that stunt all the time when I was on the air show circuit. Except that I would jump off the motorcycle onto the upper wing of the plane and then do some wing walking stunts. Then the ground crew would pneumatically launch the bike back across the jump ramp, the plane would fly above the bike and I'd jump from the plane onto the bike and ride it down to the other ramp. Not too hard, really, if you're a super studly guy like me. Wish I wasn't paralyzed now, though.
