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.

PFM AeroSports

Larry King

PFM AeroSports - Warbird Aerobatics

All maneuvers you will see Jimmy Burke perform are basic maneuvers taught all fighter pilots in initial combat crew training. These maneuvers are designed to teach the novice pilot how to handle the aircraft in all flight regimes from zero airspeed to maximum airspeed. Air combat and ground attack use a variety of these maneuvers to either position the aircraft for accurate weapons delivery or gain a tactical advantage on enemy aircraft. Jimmy will demonstrate the capabilities of the Yakovlev Yak-52 by taking it from over 200 mph to zero airspeed and from negative g loading to over 6 positive g’s. The superb handling of the Yak 52 is shown by perfectly coordinated rolls, loops, stall turns, and out of control spins.

Rower Airshows

The bone-rattling resonance of a modified Pratt and Whitney R985 radial engine.
