Jeff is no stranger to The Great Pacific Airshow. Fans may remember him flying the Screaming Sasquatch, the jet-propelled biplane that performed in 2016. Making its West Coast debut and bringing twice the excitement to Huntington Beach at this year’s Airshow is Jeff Boerboon’s Yak 110. This one-of-a-kind aircraft is made of two fuselages, two propellers, one jet engine and one awesome pilot! In addition to flying for fun, Jeff also currently flies for a major airline.
