Alabama Boys

Flown in the 1946 Piper J-3 Cub, this act begins as Greg – farmer Clem Cleaver – climbs up on the announcer’s stand, demanding a flight lesson. Later in the show, he “steals” the plane and takes off alone, with his whole crew chasing. Grandpa shoots off a tire to get him down, and Clem lands on his pickup truck as it races down the runway.

T-33 Ace Maker  flown by Gregory “Wired” Colyer

After flying with his friend Kay Eckhart in one of her Lockheed T-33s in 2007, Greg set his sights on an upgrade to the U.S. Air Force’s first operational jet and a real piece of U.S. aviation history. Acquiring a T-33 and naming it Ace Maker in 2008, he then founded the nonprofit (501c-3) T-33 Heritage Foundation to help in the preservation of the type. It later became known as the Acemaker.
