EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015: Airshow Performers - Legendary Airshow Families
Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo
Airshows at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2015 would not be complete without the performances from the legendary airshow families of Franklin and Younkin. Sons of Jimmy Franklin and Bobby Younkin, the current generation of Kyle Franklin and Matt Younkin have carried forward a tradition of excellence unmatched in the airshow business. The Aero Experience was fortunate to visit with Kyle and Matt at various airshows throughout the year besides EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, and offer this tribute as our salute to their continued success.
