Karl Holly's T-28 Trojan Navy trainer aircraft is just one of many that will be on display all weekend at the Stuart Air Show.

Holly took NewsChannel 5 Reporter Stephanie Susskind for a 20-minute flight through the skies of Martin County to show what makes his single-prop plane so special.

They even did a few tricks such a  wingovers and an aileron roll.

He says air shows like the one in Stuart are all about celebrating the history of military aircraft.

This aircraft was last retired in 2004, but was also used as air support in the Vietnam War.

The air show features all-day displays as well as demonstrations. Events get underway Friday night from 5- 10 p.m. The show continues Saturday and Sunday from 9-5 at the Martin County Airport off Monterey Road.
