Jimmy Franklin and the Jet Waco

Back on the early 2000’s these pictures were taken at the Sussex Airshow in Wantage Township, NJ.  Franklin’s show was spectacular to see anywhere, but I think he took particular joy flying at such a small venue.  He also liked to take full advantage of the  sloping terrain to create breath-taking sight-lines in which he appeared to be flying so low he was going to impact the ground.  He was an unbelievable showman and innovator. His tragic loss in 2005, along with friend and fellow performer Bobby Younkin, was heartbreaking.
