One plane piloted by Skip Stewart is called Prometheus 2. It is a 400 horsepower stunt plane that Stewart built the plane by hand. The Memphis native says he got the "flying bug" from his grandfather who was a crop duster.

Stewart likes to keep fans on the edge of their seats with his midair stunts. It's a routine that's earned him an interesting nickname.

"They call me the crazy pilot. Most of the comments are 'You're crazy!' When I was in Central America they called 'Piloto Loco'" said Stewart.

Believe it or not, Skip Stewart says he is afraid to ride roller coasters at amusement parks.
