By  | 

Fargo Air Sho organizers are telling you to get your earplugs ready for the 2015 Fargo Air Sho It's happening on July 25 and 26 at Hector International Airport.

Featured performances include Franklin's Flying Circus, Paul Stender, Skip Stewart, Kent Pietsch, Lt. Col. John Klatt, Sky Dive Fargo and the world-famous U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron, back by popular demand.

In addition, many vintage WWII aircraft from the Fargo Air Museum will be flying and on display joined by military and civilian aircraft from current inventory.

"We are really excited about the 2015 Fargo Air Show. The Navy Blue Angel flight team will headline the air show and the civilian act we have lined up are first class." Darrol Schroeder, Co-Chair.

Information about 2015 Airsho Acts:

Kyle Franklin's Flying Circus features a '30s racing-inspired biplane known as "Dracula" with blood-splattered paint and a two-color smoke system. The engine is the very first direct-port, fuel-injected R-985 P&W with over 500 horsepower, built by Tulsa Aircraft Engines and Airflow Performance.

"Speed for Hire," featuring Paul Stender's line of popular jet-powered vehicles includes a 367 MPH school bus, a 70 MPH outhouse, a Polaris RZR, and even a jet-powered Doghouse. Stender's newest creation, a '56 Ford Cabover Truck with the looks of a WWII warbird named "Spitfire," features a Gatling Gun Burner Pop System, allowing the four J-85 jet engines to fire in sequence, resulting in a rapid fire "boom, boom, boom!"

Skip Stewart presents an aerial routine flying his 400 horsepower aircraft, "Prometheus," a modified Pitts SC2. Stewart and his plane will tear through a high alpha pass on takeoff, then proceeds to skim down the runway just one foot off the ground.

Kent Pietsch executes three-storied acts that leave spectators mesmerized with dead-sticks (turning the engine off) routine from 6,000 feet, and rooftop landings on a moving RV.

Lt. Col. John Klatt is one of the top aerobatic performance pilots in America, serving over 20 years in the Air National Guard flying combat, air support and humanitarian missions throughout the world in the F-16 "Fighting Falcon" and the C-130 "Hercules" aircraft. He thrills air show crowds in his Air National Guard MXS unlimited aerobatic plane through an amazing sequence of unforgettable aerial maneuvers.

Skydive Fargo is a not-for-profit club dedicated to making skydiving safe and fun for everyone interested in the sport. Providing tandem skydives, skydiving instruction, exhibition jumps for celebrations and special events, and promoting safe skydiving in the region, Skydive Fargo has provided training to thousands of people who planned to make "just one jump."

The U.S. Navy Blues Angels fly Boeing F/A 18 Hornet fighter jets, and have been entertaining air show fans for over six decades with fast-paced maneuvers including unforgettable six-member tight formations.
