Celebrate Neosho is taking place tomorrow at the Neosho Hugh Robinson Memorial Airport. Stunt Pilot Matt Younkin will be soaring over the city in a World War II Cargo Beech 18 aircraft. He'll take off at 4 to drop sky divers, with a stunt show starting at 6, and a night show at 9:30. Younkin tells News Talk KZRG what you can expect to see at both shows.
"Loops, rolls, Cuban eights, and then around 9:30 when it gets dark, we're going to hang 50 lights on it, play some creepy music, and do a night time show."
The pilot of nearly 20 years tells says he still gets a rush every time he takes off.
"Well, you know, you always get a little bit nervous, but what I do with the airplane is very calculated. I've built a lot of safety outs into my routine. You plan for the worst, hope for the best, and it usually turns out to be a great day."
Both shows are free. The air shows are a kick-off to the city's Independence Day festivities.
