Unique Team Rocket will perform in Quesnel’s SkyFest Twilight Show

Team Rocket is the only dual formation night pyro aerobatic show in the world

For something truly unique in the aviation world, you need look no further than Eric Hansen and Ken Fowler of Team Rocket Aerobatics!

With Eric in the F1 Rocket and Ken in his Harmon Rocket II (a highly modified RV-4), Team Rocket is the only dual formation night pyro aerobatic show in the world. Yes, you read that right! Imagine two perfectly synchronized planes performing aerobatics at night with fireworks shooting out from under the wings. It is a sight to behold!

Eric has been a pilot for nearly 30 years, with over 5,000 hours logged on 50-plus different types of aircraft. Ken began his aviation career in 1978 with the Canadian Forces and became a flight engineer in 1988. Since then, he has built six aircraft, including one of his own design. As a team, they represent the best in precision, speed and high-performance aerobatics. Head to the Quesnel Regional Airport for the SkyFest Twilight Show to see them in action!

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 favourite performers and a behind-the-scenes look at Quesnel’s International Airshow.
