Amazing. I've never seen anything that equals that and I've see just about every new innovation in airshows for the last 40 years. Stupendous.

Wonder how big the oil tank is on that plane (looks like a Waco but probably isn't) to produce that amount of smoke.

Well done.

The aeroplane doing the display is a very heavily modified Grumman G-164B Ag Cat. There were a few versions of the Ag Cat with different modifications and different engines; some were fairly unique among biplanes in being built with a pressurised cockpit so it could spray pesticides with no chance of the pilot ingesting any of the aerosol fumes, which I should imagine would probably be useful for it when throwing out all those pyrotechnics. Being intended for carrying a large amount of stuff to spray, it is probably ideal for carrying loads of smoke oil and pyrotechnics without affecting its ability to fly properly.
