»  (Jun 21 2008) - Jacquie B Steals Show with Pitt Special

Jackie B Stole the Show with her 1986 Pitts S-1T. Weighing almost 850 pounds, this special made bi-plane pulled some Gs for the Porterville crowds. It has been eleven years since Porterville has had an air show like this, said Jacquie B and I was more than happy to start this show for the folks in Porterville.

In our exclusive interview with Jacquie B, we learned that shes had her pilots license for 22 years and she didnt start flying aerobaticly until 1998, ten years ago. Shes been flying in air shows for six years now and told the Post, ever since a friend took me up in a plane and flew me up-side-down, I knew this is what I wanted to do. And believe me, youll either love it or hate it.

Jacquie B told the Post that she obtained her Pitts Special Edition from a friend in April of 2000. Hed heard I was in the market for one said Jacquie and the rest is history. Not quite. The short history of Jacquie B little bi-plane kinda goes something like this.

The Red Eagle as its called was one of three which were factory built for a special occasion which marked the 100 year anniversary of the Statue of Liberty and its refurbishment. In 1986, these three little Red, White and Blue bi-planes flew around the statue of Liberty on that day and have been linked to that special occasion ever since.

Its powered by a Lycoming Engine that cranks about 200 plus horse-power and it can reach an air speed of a little over two hundred miles an hour. It has a wing span thats just over 17 feet and is a little under 15 in length.

I flew my first air show when I was 50 years young, Jacquie B told the Post, and if theres some advise Id like to leave with my fans its this. Youre never too old to start a new adventure. As well ... Jacquie B told the Post that she does pray and asks for GOD to help her make the right choices. I dont usually pray for miracles; I just pray that GOD will help me make the right choices when Im performing for my fans.
