Union City, TN Great American Airshow Sampler Part Three - Performer Highlights

By Carmelo Turdo
Union City, TN hosted the Great American Airshow in the skies over Discovery Park of America on Saturday. The lineup for the airshow included top-tier aerial entertainers, including Patrick McAlee Airshows, while the atmosphere in the park remained friendly and fun. The Aero Experience was on site at Everett-Stewart Regional Airport and Discovery Park of America to cover the event. In this third and final edition in our coverage of the Great American Airshow, we present a more in-depth survey of the performers. The Aero Experience thanks the Everett-Stewart Regional Airport staff, Air Boss Bob Connor, Announcer Jerry Homsley, Discovery Park of America and everyone who contributed to making this event a great success!
