Air Force Lt. Col. Adam "Shoobs" Schubert

United States Air Force Lt. Col. Adam "Shoobs" Schubert, formerly of Pierz, will be featured at the Duluth Air and Aviation Expo as a C-17 Globemaster pilot, joining the world famous Navy Blue Angels June 26-27.

While in command, Schubert and his crew will demonstrate tactical maneuvers and capabilities of the 585,000 pound C-17 Globemaster III in a 12-minute profile.

Schubert started flying at the age of 13 in Brainerd and earned his pilot's license at 17. He has amassed more than 6,000 hours in a variety of U.S. Air Force jets. He is currently stationed at Joint Base Charleston, South Carolina, and plans to retire from the USAF this fall with 21 years of military service. This is likely to be his last USAF airshow in his home state.

"I love to fly in front of his hometown friends and family! Feel free to come out to the show. You won’t be disappointed," Schubert said in a news release.
