The show will begin each day at 1:00 p.m. with skydivers parachute jumping with the National Flags. New acts to our 3rd Air Show will include the Shockwave Jet Truck, with 36,000 horsepower the ShockWave has enough power to accelerate at 3 Gs vertical, which is as much as the Space Shuttle! Described as a "high-energy, fast-paced, gyroscopic spectacle" Skip Stewart Air Shows is sure to rev up the crowds as will Jeff Boerboon Aerobatics flying the Extra Aircraft 330SC "right up to the edge of its ability!"
Returning will be the crowd pleasing acts of John Mohr performing extremely difficult maneuvers in a meticulously restored 1943 stock 220 Stearman bi-plane, the comedy and deadstick of Kent Pietsch in his Interstate Cadet, Gene Soucy will perform in his Grumman Show Cat with Wing-Walker Teresa Stokes. Jim Peitz will be demonstrating loops, rolls, hammerheads and more in his Aerobatic Beechcraft F33C Bonanza and Sidney's own Phil Petrik will amaze the crowd in his T-28 and P-51.
Closing the show will be the featured act, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, which is a 4 plane formation team flying the AT-6, the World War II North American Advanced Trainer, the aircraft that launched thousands of American and Canadian cadets on their flying careers generations ago. The AeroShell Aerobatic Team take these valiant old birds through a series of precision formation aerobatic maneuvers.
Award winning air show announcer Danny "Skytalker" Clisham is well-acquainted with all of the acts, so will add that extra exciting touch to this event. All of these acts will be performing on both days.
