U.S.A.F. F-16 Fighting Falcon Aerobatic Demo & Heritage Flight
A U.S. Military jet is back at Wings Over Wine Country! The roar of a U.S.A.F. F-16 Fighting Falcon will fill the skies as our guest pilot puts the plane through its aerobatic paces: loops, rolls, low-speed passes, and the crowd-pleasing high-speed pass and performance climb! This will be combined with a Heritage Flight, which will pair the F-16 with a classic warbird to honor our nation’s airpower history and our veterans.
Spencer Suderman

Vicky Benzing

She’ll be flying her 1940 Boeing Stearman, originally a trainer, then a cropduster, and now an aerobatic machine with a great big radial engine. Vicky will show you how very aerobatic this classic can be.
Jim Peitz
It’s not often you see a general aviation aircraft doing aerobatics, but Jim will show you how it’s done in a Beechcraft Bonanza. This unusual stunt plane is a natural step for Jim however… After all, he taught himself how to fly aerobatics by reading a book!
Frank "Dr. D" Donnelly
Frank is the doctor of the air as he guides his clipped wing Taylorcraft through an amazing aerobatic routine. His incredible talent becomes evident as he performs loops and rolls, as well as a breathtaking engine-off (deadstick) landing.
Just In Time Skydivers
The spectacular Just In Time Skydivers will be dropping in, first during our opening ceremonies to deliver the U.S. flag and then later in the show with their own dedicated performance. They’ve jumped into the Rose Bowl, Dodger Stadium, and even the Grand Canyon.
Red Stars
The Red Stars are a group of pilots who fly the Cold War era Chinese CJ-6 trainer. They are the one of the only civilian groups approved for flying in close formation and wow, do they ever fly close! You’ll appreciate their precision as they fly wingtip-to-wingtip in their carefully choreographed routine.
Air Show Announcer Matt Jolley
Matt Jolley is a professional air show announcer and experienced entertainer, former television news anchor and current host of the world’s most listened to talk radio show for military aviation fans, Warbird Radio LIVE.
