WWII Pacific Dogfight – the Corsair vs. the Japanese Kate Torpedo Bomber (replica)!

The enemy plane bounces our Corsair on takeoff – and the dogfight begins! The Kate will take off first and go off station while the announcer gives a brief history on the aircraft. Meanwhile, the Corsair will taxi out and give the announcer time to introduce one of the most popular fighter planes of WWII…right when the announcer finishes and the Corsair starts to take-off – the Kate pounces! …and the battle begins! Our hero prevails and the Kate goes down in smoke. The Corsair celebrates its victory with a high energy aerobatic act.

Prowlers of the Pacific – The Corsair, SBD Dauntless, Helldiver and Japanese Kate star in a high energy pyro production!!

Strafing, bombing and explosions with roaring radials filling the skies! Always have Warbirds in the box with crowd pleasing pyro, smoke, dogfights and end it with the Corsair in a Victory aerobatic act! Can be staged with 3 to 6 aircraft, with or without pyrotechnics.

NACA P-63 Kingcobra

The Dixie Wing p-63A Kingcobra is an original NACA TEST airplane. The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915, to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958, the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Book this rare warbird and honor the history of Test pilots and the test bureaus that tremendously contributed to the advancement of aviation.
