A full-size Air Hogs Sky Stunt plane will wow crowds in Florida from April 20th to 21st.

The real life plane will be piloted by Jason Newburg at the Fort Lauderdale Air Show.

Spin Master's Air Hogs R/C brand has the exclusive toy sponsorship of the show this weekend.

The 2013 Lauderdale Air Show will feature military aircraft demonstrations, low altitude flyovers, parachute team jumps and more.

“Air Hogs loves everything that has to do with flight so we’re really excited about our partnership with Jason and the Lauderdale Air Show,” said Shawn Chance, Director of Marketing at Air Hogs. 

“It’s not every day that you get to see an R/C plane turn into a life-sized stunt plane and we think fans will get a real kick out of seeing Jason in the Sky Stuntdoing its loops, corkscrews and stalls above Fort Lauderdale.”

Newburg added: "We have put incredible detail into my stunt plane to have it look like a life-size replica of the Air Hogs Sky Stunt and I’m thrilled to be partnering with Air Hogs to bring the passion of flight right to the fingertips of children of all ages."
