Aero-TV: Matt Younkin – Upholding the Twin Beech Legacy (Part 2)

Matt Younkin Continues to Share the ‘Impossible’ with Air Show Crowds (Part 2)

Next week, nearly 1,600 air show professionals will gather at the International Council of Air Shows Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada.  To celebrate the 2009 ICAS Convention, Aero-TV is profiling some of the most extraordinary air show performers we’ve had the honor to meet over the last year.

Matt Younkin is renown for having one of the most astonishing acts in one of the must unique aircraft on the aviation circuit, the Twin Beech 18.  The breath-taking aerobatic routine was first perfected and performed by Younkin’s father, legendary air show performer Bobby Younkin, over 20 years ago. 

As Bobby Younkin said, “An air show act must be unique and original to be successful.  People come to air shows to see the impossible take place.”  Matt Younkin’s effort to continue that legacy has been nothing short of extraordinary; Younkin spent remarkable time and effort learning the Twin Beech 18 routine after his father’s untimely passing in 2005.

The spectacular aerial performance, a mirror image of his father’s routine, continues to electrify crowds across the country, both aviation enthusiasts and aerobatics experts alike.  In addition, Younkin now performs the world’s only night aerobatic display in the Beech 18; equipped with 17 spotlights and 13 strobes, the Twin Beech 18 lights up the sky with stunning intensity.  Besides the Twin Beech, Younkin also performs several routines featuring both the 1929 Travel Air Mystery Ship and a Super Decathlon.

Note: The Aero-News Network would like to extend our prayers and thoughts to Matt and Matt’s family.  We are wishing you a speedy recovery, and we look forward to seeing you on the air show circuit in 2010!
