Greg Shelton’s FM-2 Wildcat was built in 1944 and flew at NAS Alameda and San Diego in VJ-9 and VJ-12 utility squadrons towing targets for other aircraft. It was given to a high school in Livingston, Montana in February 1946. In 1956 it was sold and used for aerial photography. From there it was sold from owner to owner and eventually came to be on display at the Lone Star Flight Museum in Galveston, Texas where it remained for 15 years. In 2006, Greg purchased the Wildcat from the museum, loaded it onto a trailer, and trucked it home to his hangar in Collinsville, Oklahoma.
Bob Carlton Aircraft: SubSonex
The AT-6 Texan "The Pilot Maker"
The AT-6 Texan first appeared in 1938. Originally designed as a basic trainer for the United States Army Air Corps (USAAC), the Texan was the primary training platform for all U.S. airmen such as the P-51 Mustang, F4U Corsair P-40 Warhawk, and others.
Gary developed an interest in airplanes as an early teenager, soloed at age 16 in a Piper J-3 Cub and has been passionate about aviation ever since. After high school and a tour with the USAF as a jet engine mechanic, Gary graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a degree in Aerospace Engineering. He worked as a design engineer on the Cessna Citation for Cessna for about a year before "switching hats" to work in a family operated lumber manufacturing business. Gary started flying airshows in 1998 in a Pitts S2-B and then flew airshows in the Giles 202 from 1999 through 2005. In 2006 he became the first pilot to fly airshows in the awesome and exciting new MX2! The MX2 is an all carbon fiber monoplane powered by a 6 cylinder Lycoming engine "pumped up" by Lycon and is truly "state of the art" in all out aerobatic aircraft.

NIGHT PYRO SHOW LIGHT! SMOKE! PYRO!
Bob Carlton night pyro aerobatics
Dazzling the night sky in the world's only SubSonex JSX-2
Microjet. Since 1903, airplanes and fire have been mortal enemies. Bob Carlton coaxes them into a snarling truce with the spectacular Fire & Lights sets the night sky ablaze sparks, smoke, fireballs and bomb bursts, Fire & Lights set the night sky ablaze with color and action.
The SubSonex MicroJet is capable of speeds of 300 mph, and can perform all the classic aerobatics, including maneuvers like tailslides, normally considered tabo in a jet. Bit it's not just about high speed. With its incredibly wide range, it can turn tight and stay close so your spectators aren't waiting for a turnaround.

Matt Younkin Saturday Night Show
Worlds Smallest Airport
Flown in the 1946 Piper J-3 Cub, this act begins as Greg - farmer Clem Cleaver - climbs up on the announcer's stand, demanding a flight lesson. Later in the show, he "steals" the plane and takes off alone, with his whole crew chasing. Grandpa shoots off a tire to get him down, and Clem lands on his pickup truck as it races down the runway.
Imagine the airshow circuit’s largest, noisiest, and smokiest airplane lit up like a Christmas tree and performing aerobatics at night! Imagination has become reality! Keeping with Younkin Airshows tradition of pioneering the unusual, this new variation of an existing amazement will surely be the highlight of any night airshow.
Matt Younkin’s Beech 18 performance is likely the most unusual act on the airshow circuit today. The Beech 18 was never designed for aerobatic flight; however that doesn’t make it incapable of doing just that.
The performance is almost a mirror image of the one his father Bobby pioneered and flew for over 15 years.
