Stay tuned for 2020's line-up! We've already begun planning next year's airshow to be BIGGER, BETTER, and FULL of excitement!
NAKAJIMA B5N KATE / FG-1D CORSAIR
The Nakajima B5N2 ("Kate") was the sole shipboard torpedo-bomber of the Japanese Navy at the start of the Pacific War. Until around 1942, it out-performed any Allied ship borne torpedo bomber. The FG-ID Corsair served in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, Fleet Air Arm, and the Royal New Zealand Air Force, as well as the French Navy Aeronavale. The Corsair proved to be not only an outstanding fighter, but an excellent fight-bomber as well.

MINI JET AIRSHOWS is a lifelong dream of the pilot Tom "Lark" Larkin. What started off as a half partnership in an RV-6 with his brother Larry, eventually turned into a brief ownership in a Twin Comanche, a total rebuild and several hundred hours of flying in a Staudacher, and then the once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase and perform in a SubSonex Jet.
Jason Flood flies a Pitts S-1S. As one of the youngest aerobatic pilots flying in the U.S. today, his career is already taking off. Jason has made a habit of ranking 1st place in just about all of the regional aerobatic competitions he attends.
Along with Jason's high performance & energy Pitts routine, Jason is adding a Comedy act in a Clipped-Wing Piper J3 Cub. Jason is excited & honored to bring it back to the airshow circuit for many to enjoy. This Clipped-Wing Cub was made famous in the airshow industry and in competition aerobatics by the late Hall of Famer Giles Henderson!
TWIN TIGER AEROBATIC TEAM
Team owner, Mark Sorenson has teamed up with Mark Nowosielski
with his second identical Tiger Yak 55’s displaying a magnificent aerial demonstration of precision and skill during their performance of spectacular formation aerobatics. Sorenson reflects on incorporating the smoke rings into his act, “I wanted to give the audience not only something to watch, but something that would intrigue them and make them actually get involved during my show. Zipping by doing 8-point aileron rolls is great, but people want to see something new and different. I found that I could make these smoke rings and stay out of the ‘high explosives’ category because of how they are made with compressed air."
Make sure to stick around on Saturday to see the Twin Tigers in their
"Come Alive" Night Show Production!
