John Black flies his Super Decathlon to the edge of the envelope putting on an dynamic display and showing what you can really make an over-the-wing airplane do!  John learned to fly at just 17 and his first aerobatic lesson was in the very same type of plane he flies for his air show performance.  A retired Air Force pilot, John currently flies the P-51 Mustang, L-39, and AT-6 when he’s not gracing the skies and wowing crowds with his show stopping performance!...

The Lockheed Martin C-5M Super Galaxy is one of the largest transport aircraft in the world. This massive flying behemoth is equipped with five sets of landing gear with 28 wheels in all. It can carry 280,000 pounds of cargo and is large enough for two M1A1 Abrams tanks or six Apache helicopters. Both the nose and aft doors open so cargo can be loaded and off-load cargo from both ends. The C-5M can fly over 2,500 nautical miles without refueling and can and can take off and land on relatively short runways. With aerial refueling, the aircraft’s range is limited only by crew endurance....

The A-10 Thunderbolt II better known as the "Warthog" is a single-pilot attack aircraft designed for short takeoffs and landings from primitive airfields.  The A-10 can operate nearly anywhere and provide ground troops with close air support. The entire aircraft was largely designed around its nose gun, a 30 mm Avenger cannon. The seven-barrel rotary cannon measures nine feet long and fires 30mm armor-piercing shells at a rate of nearly 4,000 rounds per minute. As a result it has been given the nickname “Tank killer”. The Avenger cannon also represents over 15 percent of the aircraft's weight.  When the gun is removed for maintenance, the A-10's tail must be supported to keep the nose from tipping up....

The U.S. Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier Demo is one of the most unique military aircraft demonstrations in the world.  The Harrier is the only military jet with a full vertical take off and landing capability. It is able to hover like a helicopter and then blast forward like a jet at near-supersonic speeds.  The AV-8B Harrier Demo begins with several conventional high speed and low speed passes and then culminates when it comes to a hover with near zero forward movement.  The pilot performs a 360 degree slow rotation of the jet, then vertically climbs and transitions the engines back to conventional flight mode and speeds off like it never stopped....

The F-22 Raptor is the fastest and most maneuverable fighter jet in the world today. The F-22's twin engines produce more thrust than any other fighter. Combined with its sleek aerodynamic design, this allows the F-22 to “Supercruise” at 1.5 times the speed of sound without using fuel consuming afterburner. The F-22’s unique thrust vectoring and advanced flight controls allow it to outmaneuver any other aircraft. The F-22 Raptor demo puts thrust vectoring on full display during its demonstration defying imagination as it climbs straight up, stops in mid-air, then reverses towards the ground before flipping the nose around in a summersault at near zero forward speed. The F-22 makes sharp, sudden turns displacing and compress air into vapor and...

A Coast Guard search and rescue demonstration showcases how they perform an out-the-door water rescue of a person in distress from a helicopter hovering overhead.  The demo begins with one of  the famed Coast Guard rescue swimmers jumping from the helicopter as it hovers over 20 feet above the water.  The swimmer simulates stabilizing the person in distress before hosting them up into the helicopter....

The F-18 Rhino Demo Team flies the F/A-18F Super Hornet in a 15 minute demonstration of the Navy's workhorse carrier based fighter.  This twin engine beast puts out 44,000 pounds of heart vibrating thrust in dynamic display of speed and maneuverability that is awe inspiring for a fighter originally developed over 40 years ago. .  > Click Here for more info and photos of the F-18 Super Hornet....

Mike Wiskus is one of the most talented and experienced aerobatic pilots in the nation with over 25,000 flight hours in 40 different kind of aircraft.  His high-energy aerobatic routine defies imagination with a combination of loops rolls and low altitude maneuvers that will keep you on the edge of your seat!  Whether he's cutting a ribbon inverted at 50 feet, buzzing a Coast Guard cutter or making a "Misquito run" down a narrow river with a tree line on both sides, Mike always does something spectacular with his Pitts to defy imagination!...

The B-25 Bomber was used by the U.S and its allies in every theater of World War II.  The B-25 came to fame on April 18, 1942 during the Doolittle Raid.  Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle led 16 B-25s in a daring attack on mainland Japan, four months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.  Launched from the aircraft carrier Hornet, the raid was a one way mission as the aircraft could only launch and not land from its short deck....

The United States Special Operations Command Parachute Team, known as the Para-Commandos, is composed of volunteers from the United States Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and U.S. government civilians who are assigned to the Special Operations Command.  Formed in 1991, the Para-Commandos represent the elite Special Operations Forces of the United States armed services....
