B-25 - Devil Dog

 

 

The Devil Dog Squadron is a volunteer organization of the CAF, dedicated to flying, maintaining and preserving a WWII B-25 bomber, the Devil Dog. The Devil Dog represents a PBJ, the Marine Corps version of a B-25.

The squadron's volunteers come from all walks of life and have wide variety of backgrounds. It takes many different skills to make the group successful.

Not many people know that the US Marine Corps flew bombers in WWII. One of the missions of the Devil Dog Squadron is to keep that piece of history alive.

PBJs came about by chance. In 1943, North American, the B-25's manufacturer, produced more B-25s than the Army Air Corp could use. Approximately 800 of the airplanes were offered to the US Navy. Although the famous Doolittle Raid was a successful carrier launched formation of B-25s, the Navy had little use for the extra airplanes. They were too large for regular carrier duty.

he Marines designated the B-25s "PBJ". PB indicates Patrol Bomber and the J is an alpha-code designating the manufacturer, North American Aviation (PBJ does not mean Peanut Butter and Jelly).


A one in a life time thrill is to ride in the B-25 and the crew will be offering plane rides at a cost of $425 the day of the air show or you can pre-pay and only pay $395 by visiting their website at www.devildogsquadron.com ----- Call in advance to KJAS Radio in Jasper, Texas 409-384-2626 or Debbie Foster, Coordinator, 409-489-8447 to make your reservation or for more information

He keeps Viper spectators on the edge of their seats and leaves them begging for more. Inspired by his father, Jason had his first solo flight at 16 and by 17, he earned his pilot license. Having started so young, Jason finds it very important to be a leader to the youth who share an interest in aviation and aerobatics. He has acted as Vice President for the Embry-Riddle Sport Aviation Club for many years.

Greg Kountz & The Alabama Boys

 

 

Up front and down low high-performance aerobatics, that's what Greg Koontz brings in the latest flagship from American Champion. The Xtreme Decathlon in Greg's experienced hands is a breathtaking thrill ride that will have your crowd on their feet. Greg brings the action in the air to the crowd with live commentary from the cockpit as he pushes the Xtreme D to the limits with incredible acro and even an inverted ribbon cut.

The Alabama Boys / World's Smallest Airport Comedy Act

Simply the best in family entertainment! A simple, overall-clad farmer from Estaboga, Alabama, all Clem Cleaver wants is to redeem his free flight lesson he won at an airshow ten years ago. He nags the airshow announcer, and makes life miserable for him and the airshow crew. Clem eventually convinces the announcer to let him go out and fly with an instructor during a break, and chaos ensues when he takes off in a Piper Cub - without the instructor! Ace pilot Greg Koontz plays the role of Clem, and hair raising comedy is his specialty when he and the Alabama boys give the audience a thousand and one laughs. The Cub seemingly flounders out of control through the air, Clem wailing the entire time. The scene comes to an exciting conclusion as Clem eventually lands - on a moving truck!

Tora Tora Tora

 

 

 

 

TORA TORA TORA is a re-creation of the December 7th 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. It's accomplished through hundreds of dedicated volunteers -- most belonging to the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) working as ground crew, maintenance, pilots and pyrotechnic experts. The purpose is to create a dynamic history lesson about the event that propelled us into World War II .....and entertain.

TORA's re-creation is usually the feature performance at organized air shows. It involves many Japanese fighters and bombers simulating the Pearl Harbor attack. In addition, TORA provides breathtaking smoke, fire and explosions from the pyrotechnics team. A professional announcer explains the purpose, history and performance to the crowd.

Stan Musick - FG-ID Corsair

 

 

Dr. Stanley Musick of Ridgeland, Mississippi has a fever, but it's not the typical illness that he treats in his patients. Dr. Musick has a fever for aviation, and he says he got it at the age of 12 when he had his first flight in a Bonanza.

Stan had to wait 5 years before he was in an airplane again, but it was well worth the wait. At the age of 17, he was working and saving up his money while taking flying lessons. Stan made his first solo flight, obtained his pilot license, graduated high school, had his 18th birthday, and bought his first airplane - all within 30 days!

Since that time, Stan has been fortunate to fly several of the world's top aircraft, including World War II fighter planes like the P-51 Mustang, the Seafury, and the F4U Corsair, and trainer planes like the Stearman and the T-6.

Musick can fly just about anything, he has the Airline Transport Certificate, the Certified Flight Instructor certificate, and the “All Makes and Models” endorsement for Experimental aircraft. He’s also experienced in flying helicopters and gliders.
