If you like high-powered engines and exciting pyrotechnics displays, you won’t want to miss Rick Kopp and his PYRO Jet Truck at SkyFest this summer!
After racing for many years, Kopp decided to step out of competitions to entertain with exhibition drag racing — and entertain he does.
Kopp’s unique PYRO Jet Truck is an attention-grabber, to say the least. It is capable of some seriously over-the-top power, fire and noise. PYRO is an International Transtar 4300 powered by a Westinghouse J34-WE- 48 Turbojet engine with a flaming afterburner from a T-2 Buckeye. The engine in this monster can produce 12000 HP and over 6,000 pounds of thrust. As an added bonus, it is equipped with huge flame-throwing exhaust stacks, which create one of the most impressive fire displays in the world, plus custom LEDs and a strobe system for an unbelievable night show.
SkyFest returns to Quesnel Aug. 2, 3 and 4 at the Quesnel Regional Airport. Get your tickets at quesnelskyfest.ca and follow #SkyFest on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates on your favorite performers and a behind-the-scenes look at Quesnel’s International Airshow.
