Internationally known aerobatics performer Skip Stewart will be flying his spectacular routine in the “Prometheus.” Dr. Stan Musick will do aerobatics in a North American P-51 D Mustang, and Chris Avery will fly the F4U Corsair; both are from the Southern Heritage Air Foundation of Tallulah, Louisiana.

The B-25, P-51, Corsair, and “TORA” Zero planes will perform a re-enactment of a World War II bombing run.

A once in a life-time thrill is to ride in the B-25 Devil Dog. The crew will be offering plane rides at a cost of $395.00 per person. Call KJAS radio in Jasper, Texas to make your reservation or for more information (409) 384-2626.
