EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2016: Airshow Performers - Matt Younkin and Kyle Franklin

Fred Harl and Carmelo Turdo AirVenture Oshkosh 2016 attracted the top airshow performers in the industry, and two of those performers carry on the tradition of two legendary aviation families: Matt Younkin and Kyle Franklin.  Matt Younkin flew the Beech 18, Magic by Moonlight, in a carefully choreographed series of rolling and looping maneuvers perfected by his father, Bobby Younkin.   Kyle Franklin, son of Jimmy Franklin, flew his newest aircraft creation, the Franklin Demon-1, Dracula, a Waco Mystery Ship with modern aerodynamic and control systems that were originally conceived by Kyle and Jimmy Franklin.  Both Matt Younkin and Kyle Franklin have become aviation legends in their own right, as can be seen in the following sequences.
