Greg Connell

Greg Connell

The Pitts Model 12 is the 12th design by legendary aircraft designer Curtis Pitts. The "Standard" Model 12 is an extremely High Performance, Unlimited Aerobatic capable, Radial engine powered Biplane. The "Greg Connell Airshows" Model 12 ratchets up the level of performance even more than the ridiculously incredible abilities of the "Standard" Model 12!

The "Connell Model 12" is the only two place Model 12 in the world with the single place wings and aelerons!!!…This wing-aeleron combination gives this massive biplane an incredibly fast roll rate!

The "Greg Connell Airshows" Model 12 is "billed" as an amazingly exciting airplane that has "WARBIRD PRESENCE AND POWER WITH PITTS AGILITY AND ATTITUDE!"

Corsair Enterprises

Jim Tobul and the "Korean War Hero" F4U-4 Corsair are an exciting tribute to the men and machines that fought to defend democracy and freedom in the Korean Conflict from 1950–1953. Jim tells the story of this celebrated aircraft with both dramatic aerial displays and while static on the ground at airshows all over North America.

Jim Tobul is the man behind the stick in "Korean War Hero", but rather than the owner, he considers himself more the caretaker of this beautiful warbird and her storied history. An avid pilot for over 40 years, Jim takes great pride in carrying the legacy of the veteran Corsair to airshows all over North America. He lives in Bamberg, SC, and owns a successful industrial hydraulic accumulator manufacturing business which was started with his father, Joe.

"It's very important that we keep the history of these aircraft and the men that flew them alive and active," said Jim in a recent interview. "The role these heroes played in securing democracy and our freedom cannot be measured. We owe them a great debt, and it is an honor and privilege to carry on for them and tell their stories."

Darnell Racing — SHOCKWAVE


When Les Shockley created the SHOCKWAVE Jet Truck in 1984 he had no idea the major impact this Triple Jet Engine Monster would have on not only the Drag Racing World but also the Airshow Industry.

SHOCKWAVE has literally become a National Icon. We have many fans who say they saw this truck perform when they were kids. As a matter of fact Chris Darnell, who shares the driving responsibilities with his Dad Neal, got to ride in SHOCKWAVE at the young age of 7 years old and now he's in the Drivers Seat, a dream come true for him.

With Darnell Racing Enterprises acquisition and rebuild of the Famous SHOCKWAVE Jet Truck we had a very busy and successful 2013 Season but now it's on to the upcoming and very exciting 2014 Season.

Pat Epps

Pat Epps, a native of Athens, Georgia and the youngest son of Ben T. Epps, graduated from Georgia Tech in 1956 and entered the United States Air Force in 1957. As a distinguished graduate of Class 58L, he became the fifth of Ben Epps’ sons to become a military pilot.

With over 10,000 flying hours as a commercial pilot with type ratings in North American B-25 Mitchell, Douglas DC-3, Learjet, and Cessna Citation, Epps continues to go “Above and Beyond.” Epps has been recognized amongst the honorees of the 1998 Gatherings of Eagles, an international group setting standards and paving the way for future air and space power. Epps has also been honored by the NBAA.

Epps led an 11-year quest to recover the Lost Squadron. In 1992, he succeeded in retrieving a WWII Lockheed P-38 Lightning buried beneath 265 feet of the Greenland ice cap. In June 1994, Epps piloted a friend’s DC-3 to France. As he flew over Normandy, veteran War World II paratroopers jumped to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of D-Day landings.

Jacquie B. Airshows

When most people turn 50, they figure it’s time to relax and settle into neutral while coasting toward retirement. Not Jacquie B!When Jacquie turned 50, she launched her solo aerobatic career with her one-of-a-kind Pitts Special biplane. Why not? “The sky never runs out of up!” as she says.

During the centennial celebration of powered flight in 2003, Jacquie finally quit the humdrum of a white collar profession and realized her dream as an air show performer, becoming the first female pilot to enter this business at the age of 50.

With over 2,500 flight hours and more than 100 coast-to-coast air show performances behind her, Jacquie has proven that she has the talent, stamina, discipline and guts to reach beyond the limits placed on her by naysayers. In fact, she broke even more stringent cultural boundaries when she became the first female solo pilot to perform at the 2010 Al Ain Aerobatic Show in the United Arab Emirates.

Larry King

I have been performing at Airshows and Aerobatic Competitions since 1996, specializing in the large radial engine powered aerobatic aircraft. I accompanied an aircraft I was maintaining for a performer to several shows and took care of the aircraft during the event.

With the performance edge of almost One to One power to weight ratio, the airshow this aircraft can perform is truly awesome. There is no other airshow act operating this aircraft anywhere in the USA.

From the extremely short take off roll of about 3 seconds in 300 feet to the blinding all out acceleration this aircraft will be at maximum forward speed while still over the runway.

The Pitts Model 12 has a rate of climb approaches 4,000 feet per minute.

The roll rate is over 360 degrees per second.

It is swinging an 8 foot diameter, 3 blade propeller that produces over 1600 pounds of static thrust. With an airshow weight of less than 1850 pounds it's not hard to have fun.

Tiger Airshows

Tiger Airshows combines the best in what a family friendly Circus has to offer with the thrill and excitement of an Airshow, precision Tiger formation aerobatics, custom smoke ring special effects, and a comedy act that is so funny it should be illegal.

Ladies and gentlemen…. “This is NOT your ordinary 3 ring circus!”

Tiger Airshows is proud to introduce the Twin Tiger Aerobatic Team. Buck Roetman and Mark Sorenson have teamed up in two identical Tiger Yak 55’s with a magnificent aerial demonstration of precision and skill as they perform spectacular formation aerobatics.

Rower Airshows

This is Rower Airshows, the most exciting, pulse pounding vintage Stearman airshow on the circuit today! Gary Rower, a former USAF F-16 instructor and current airline captain, has flown all over the world, accumulating over 21,000 hours in every type of aircraft imaginable.

The bone-rattling resonance of a modified Pratt and Whitney R985 radial engine. Almost 1000 cubic inches of inimitable vintage character and 450 horsepower coupled with an incredible billowing smoke system! When this amazing bird takes to the skies over show center, you are guaranteed to see an unforgettable demonstration of skill and aerobatics in one of the most beautiful examples of this classic aircraft in the world!

Wildhorse Aviation

Wild Horse Aviation, founded in 2006 by Buck Roetman, specializes in aircraft acquisition, maintenance, fabrication and export.

Buck Roetman has been flying for over 35 years - he has flown more than 105 different types of airplanes, from Cubs to corporate jets, resulting in more than 13,500 hours of flight time.

Roetman holds the following FAA certificates ATP, Commercial, Multiengine, CFI, CFII and CFIM. He is typed in Learjet, Westwind, Citation and Hawker. In addition, he is an Airframe and Power plant mechanic with an Inspection authorization and is an Aerobatic Competency Examiner for the International Council of Air Shows.

Roetman currently flies a modified Christen Eagle. The airplane was completed in 2003 and has been an airshow plane its entire life. It differs from most planes here today in that is has a Lycoming IO360 4-cylinder engine, built by Penn Yan Aero, and pumped up to 250 HP.
