The Barnes County Municipal Airport, located one mile north of Valley City, will be the site for the Wings and Wheels AirShow with gates opening at 10 a.m. Sept. 8.
Those who’ve agreed to perform are Matt Younkin, Jim “Fang” Maroney, Warren Pietsch, Rex Hammarback, Toby McPherson and the Fargo Skydivers, Gortmaker said.
Air performances are scheduled to begin at 3 pm. The featured performer is Younkin, third-generation pilot and the son of Bobby Younkin, considered to be one the greatest air show performers of all time.
Younkin’s Beech 18 performance is likely one of the most unusual acts on the air show circuit today. The aircraft was never designed for aerobatic flight. The performance begins and ends to light-hearted music that capitalizes on an overly-obese airplane executing maneuvers its designers and air show audience members never conceived possible for a large transport plane. The performance will be two-fold with the last half, “Magic by Moonlight,” done after dark with the air show circuit’s largest, noisiest and smokiest airplane lit up like a Christmas tree.
