The roar of the YAK 110 could just about overshadow the roar of the crowd as they watch the plane soar over the Slaton skies Saturday (June 15) during the South Plains Airshow.

The plane is unusual – it isn’t just one plane. “It’s the first time in the history of aviation that two separate airplanes have been combined together, and then added a jet engine,” said Jeff Boerboon, who is the pilot of the plane.

“They have put two other planes together in the past, but never had the mind to ever put a jet engine. That makes this airplane truly a one-of-a-kind never been done before type of airplane.”
