Screamin’ Sasquatch in Town

Owatonna is the testing ground for a one-of-a-kind stunt airplane. John Klatt Airshows has been flying the aircraft in town to prepare for a nationwide tour.

“…most amazing thing about this airplane….1929 biplane….the jet noise…the two things don’t compete together.”

-Jeff Boerboon, pilot

The airplane, a Taperwing Waco biplane made famous by barnstormers of the 1920s and 30s, adds the modern twist of a jet engine that will amaze spectators with amazing sights and sounds.

The pilots are John Klatt and Jeff Boerboon.

“We like to say we are feeding our wild side…I’ve done a lot of wild things…We sit there in a hover…climb straight out of that…over 8,000 feet per minute straight up.”

-Boerboon

KRFO Radio’s Roy Koenig spoke with Boerboon:
