Jerry “Jive” Kerby and Wild Blue

PFLUGERVILLE TX – MARCH 19, 2014 – Every wonder why a retired Air Force Lt. Col. who’s some of the most powerful jets around would want to get into an RV-8 for an airshow act?  We wondered that very thing, and caught up with Jerry “Jive” Kerby at the Ft. Worth Alliance Air Show last fall to ask that question.  Jerry was performing as the Flight Lead for the Black Diamond Jet Team, but we had seen him fly his RV-8 named “Wild Blue” at Oshkosh earlier in the summer.  You can tell he has a great time in that plane.  He says, “Wild Blue is a little RV-8 that wants to be a fighter jet.”  Like Jerry, we’re betting that with him at the controls that dream might just happen.

This story was a collaborative effort in conjunction with the Baylor University Film and Digital Media Department.  Senior Rhett Gill is working with LiveAirShowTV this semester as an independent study.  Rhett had to get up to speed on the world of aviation and airshows, and he caught on quickly.  Watch for another story from him very soon.

As the air show season gets off the staring line, LiveAirShowTV is on board.  Watch for reports from Wings Over South Texas/NAS Kingsville, as well as Sun ‘n Fun in April.  Our schedules for live broadcasts are still in the works.  As soon as the shows are locked in, we will announce them.  Keep up with daily news on Facebook and Twitter. It’s going to be a great air show season, and we look forward to seeing you on the ramp!
