Coles County Airport Airshow 2018: Greg Koontz and the Alabama Boys

By Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience continues our coverage of the 2018 Coles County Airport Airshow with a look at two performances from Greg Koontz and the Alabama Boys. Greg Koontz flew his solo aerobatic show in the bright red Super Decathlon, a favorite act at airshows of all sizes, including the giant annual EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. He also flew his Piper Cub as farmer Clem Cleaver, who "steals" the plane after demanding a flight lesson. He ends up touching down on the top of a recovery truck, only to climb out and eventually land. Great aerial entertainment as always from Greg Koontz and the Alabama Boys!
