The GEICO Skytypers Air Show Team, a WWII airshow performance squadron, has announced it will perform at Atlantic City´s air show in August, the company said.
The team´s six WWII-era aircraft will perform a dynamic 18-minute, low-level precision-flying demonstration.
The GEICO Skytypers fly six WWII SNJs, the Navy´s equivalent of the Texas T-6. Both trainer aircraft were used to prepare pilots of The Greatest Generation for combat.
The GEICO Skytypers skytype by creating giant messages in the sky with five aircraft flying in a tight, line-abreast formation.
