Wings Over North Georgia
Wings Over North Georgia fills the sky with thunder and covers the ground with smoke. Headlining the list of altitude-climbing performers, The Black Diamond Jet Team arcs through the sky with rocket-fueled panache as they show off what their arctic-camouflaged L-39s are capable of. Kent Pietsch Airshows' jelly-bean-decorated 1942 Interstate Cadet then tumbles through the clouds, cutting off its power, stalling, and launching skyward again. But to watch something fall from the sky for good, visitors need only look to the Lucas Oil Parachute team, the members of which have a combined 9,600 jumps.
Back on the ground, smoke billows from the the Smoke-n-Thunder Jet Car as it speeds across the tarmac at up to 400 mph. Smoke of a different flavor entices taste buds from the Smoke-n-Thunder BBQ Classic, where competitors show off their winningest recipes and the aprons they've tie-dyed with barbecue sauce as they compete for $15,000 worth of prizes. Tykes, meanwhile, can find clear air by heading to the Kids Zone where inflatables shaped like airplanes help them mimic the pilots overhead.
