The Atlanta Air Show will feature the Screamin Sasquatch Jack Link’s Jet Waco, a highly modified 1929 Taperwing Waco on October 14-15, 2017 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway
The Screamin Sasquatch is powered by a Pratt & Whitney 985 Radial Engine and a CJ610 Jet Engine. These dual power-plants will provide over 4,500 lbs. of thrust, enough to rocket the Screamin’ Sasquatch straight up, into max speed vertical climbs!
Building this airplane over the past year has been a labor of love for John Klatt Air Shows and has required the collaboration of many others. Perhaps the most important collaborator is a person who’s memory still lives vividly in our minds and hearts – Jimmy Franklin. Many in the air show industry were mesmerized by the Jet Waco concept, ever since Jimmy Franklin first conceived of it, built it, and then flew it in ways that left people in absolute awe. He first debuted the Jet Waco in 1999, and quickly made it one of the air show world’s most popular acts of all time. 15 years later, John Klatt Air Show returned a Jet Waco to the air show circuit in 2014.
The Screamin Sasquatch is sponsored by Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, a company who’s story is testament to the entrepreneurial spirit of America. Starting in a small town in Northern Wisconsin, the Link family has grown their business into the world’s leading producer of meat snacks by focusing on high quality products, hard work and innovative marketing. Their “Messin’ with Sasquatch” commercials have become iconic, and convey the “Feed Your Wild Side” spirit of the Jack Link’s brand.
The Screamin’ Sasquatch will be accompanied by the Jack Link’s “Wild Side” truck, which will provide air show fans a fun and engaging experience, most importantly including the opportunity to sample Jack Link’s delicious Beef Jerky! Meet the Screamin’ Sasquatch – Jack Link’s Jet Waco! Get ready to Feed Your Wild Side!
