Flying the one-of-a-kind Talon Eagle, Dan McClung demonstrates the awesome power of these highly-modified aerobatic aircraft.
Team lead Dan McClung harnesses the raw power of the Talon Eagle to push the aircraft to its performance envelope. Dan completed over 21 years of active and reserve flying for the U.S. Navy before retiring as a Commander. Dan has accumulated more than 22,000 hours of flying, a remarkable achievement considering that he completed nearly 400 day and night aircraft carrier landings in the A7 Corsair. His last tour included working with the famed Top Gun school as an aggressor pilot, flying the A-4 Skyhawk before his career as a pilot for a major airline. After 25 years of airline flying, Dan retired as a 767 Captain in 2004. Dan is an ACE, an Air Show Competency Evaluator, appointed by the International Council of Air Shows. His responsibilities include evaluating other air show performers for safety, compliance and competence. Dan’s many hours of physical conditioning, desire to excel, discipline and practice in the air results in an air show that is both captivating and innovative. Dan’s dream is to make everyone watching his performance feel the fun, excitement and passion that he has for flying and entertaining YOU ALL.
Dan leads the way on the Red Eagle team, recognizing that the talent to build and fly airplanes that entertain like this comes from a higher authority! Their mission? To use their God-given talents and opportunities to challenge, inspire and motivate others to excel in everything they do.
