Headline acts will include:

Gene Soucy Airshows & Airshow Aces - From the amazing daredevil feats of wing-walker, Teresa Stokes, to the elegant aerobatics of Gene Soucy in the ShowCat bi-plane, the Gene Soucy Airshows act will provide inspired entertainment for the entire family. The audience will be captivated by everything the show has to offer - opening jump, car top landing, solos, comedy, wing walking, team act, dead stick, and a transfer act in addition to the more traditional aerobatic demonstration. This show is an exhilarating throwback to classic airshow troupes of the past!

Team MS760 – Aerobatics, a new two ship aerobatic formation jet air show team, will perform in the 2011 air show. The pilots selected for Team MS760 Aerobatics are Captain Dale "Snort" Snodgrass, United States Navy Retired and Lt. Colonel Jerry "Jive" Kerby, United States Air Force Retired. Snodgrass and Kerby are both military veterans with thousands of hours each in military jet aircraft in addition to being recognized air show performers with experience flying in several different high performance aircraft.

Shockwave Jet Truck – Performance you ask? The Shockwave Jet Truck runs over 300 MPH chasing airplanes at air shows and holds the world record in a quarter mile for trucks at 256 MPH in 6.36 seconds. At 36,000 horsepower, the Shockwave has enough power to accelerate at 3 Gs vertical, which is as much as the Space Shuttle. Stand back…these 3 Pratt and Whitley jet engines create flames and smoke that make for some very special effects!
