T-G reporter Mitchell Petty took the ride of his life Wednesday with the Air National Guard Aerobatic Team, who will be performing this weekend at the Great Tennessee Air Show in Smyrna. Mitchell managed to keep his last meal in his belly as the pilots gave him a demonstration of a few of the maneuvers they will be performing during the air show on Saturday and Sunday. T-G reporter Brian Mosely accompanied Petty on his trip in a Beechcraft chase plane, with the stunt planes flying mere feet away from the open door of the craft.
