The 2013 Chennault International Airshow was a two day event and kicked off Saturday September 28th.  My family and I got a chance to go Sunday and in spite of the overcast, thousands still came out to enjoy the impressive show.  Performing a series of precision formation aerobatic maneuvers, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team performance was unbelievable.  The incredibale team was flying World War II North American Advanced Trainers and made loops, rolls and more look easy.  Here’s a look at a couple of videos posted by some of the spectators.

Jimmy Fodham flew the gorgeous P-51 Mustang at this weekends Chennault International Airshow.

The husband and wife team Melissa and Rex Pemberton were absolutely amazing and Koodles to Melissa in being the youngest woman in history to do what she’s doing and that’s flying the H-E double hockey sticks out of a plan.  Together the daredevil couple  provided a high energy show packed with action.  Melissa did her aerobatic show in an Edge540 Aircraft, while her husband Rex took to the skies in his wing suit.

By the way, Melissa also raced what appears to be the fastest truck on earth…..The Flash Fire Jet Truck.  It’s the World’s Fastest Jet Powered Truck and travels at a record 375 miles per hour!  Here’s a look at how this truck gets down.

In honor of the legendary Tuskegee Airmen, this beautiful Red Tail is the only flying museum of it's kind.

Another special moment of the show was when they gave tribute to the mighty Tuskegee Airmen and featured the only flying Red Tail Squadron in America.   The flying museum is a volunteer-driven plain and is part of a program created in the mid-1990s as part of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF).  The beautiful Squadron’s purpose is to honor the accomplishments of America’s first black military pilots, legendary Tuskegee Airmen and their crews.

From 21-year Kevin Coleman amazing show in his one-of-a-kind Extra 300SHP, one of the highest-performance airplanes in the world.  To Randy Ball’s jaw dropping 8g turns in the  electrifying MiG-17F.  The Chennault International Airshow was a blast and I highly recommend you come out and join in on all the fun if we get another airshow in Lake Charles.
