Herb & Ditto have never missed a performance in 10 consecutive years.

Keesler AFB 2011
David Schultz, Airshow Producer (in 2008)

"Herb and Ditto provided a performance for us during the 2011 Keesler AFB Airshow that was well beyond what can be seen on his DVD and video. The smoke rings and overall aerobatic performance thrills crowds and there is never a dull moment. He was a great addition to our line up and will be a great performance for any airshow! We strongly recommend Herb and Ditto for any show looking for a good Solo Warbird performance."

Cheyenne Wyoming ANG 2011
Maj. Ryan Henderson, Airshow Director (in 2011)

“I would like to wholeheartedly endorse Herb Baker from Herb and Ditto Airshows for your next Airshow or aviation event. …We could not have been happier! He and Ditto quickly stole the show and won the hearts of all the spectators… “His show stops people in their tracks... 15,000 spectators were spellbound... Herb and Ditto should be a frontline performance at these and all aviation events. They are a first rate act that is so different from the rest of the pack that they should be one of the first calls made by directors and coordinators. I highly endorse them and recommend you book them now. You will not be disappointed!”

Dick Cutshall, Veteran Air Boss (in 2007)

A picture and article of your very unique smoke rings were on the front page of the St.Petersburg Times newspaper. Your performance at the MacDill AFB Open House was so different and entertaining for our spectators. We appreciated that you were easy to accommodate and professional in your work.”

Robert D Thomas, Colonel USAF (in 2008)
“You provided 450,000 visitors an opportunity to experience a very unique aerobatic demonstration using the wing-tip smoke generators. Your hard work and unselfish dedication helped plan a dream in the hearts of many future aviators. Job well done! Great looking aircraft and great show!”

Mark Henley, Performer (in 2008)

“Herb and Ditto are one-of-a-kind. They only act with wing-tip smoke is very unique to the industry and has true entertainment value. One of the safest aerobatic pilots flying, and yet he continuously pushes the envelope in air show performance.”
