Matt Younkin's Twin Beech 18
Matt Younkin's Beech 18 performance is likely the most unusual act on the airshow circuit today. The Beech 18 was never designed for aerobatic flight; however that doesn't make it incapable of doing just that.
Matt Younkin's "Twin Beech After Dark" Night Show
Imagine the airshow circuit's largest, noisiest, and smokiest airplane lit up like a Christmas tree and performing aerobatics at night! Imagination has become reality! Keeping with Younkin Airshows tradition of pioneering the unusual, this new variation of an existing amazement will surely be the highlight of any night airshow.
This is Rower Airshows, the most exciting, pulse pounding vintage Stearman airshow on the circuit today!
