The fog grounded many planes looking to warm up for the Duluth Air and Aviation Expo Friday, but Eyewitness News got to check out a one-of-a-kind plane at Monaco Air. 

The Jack Link's Screamin' Sasquatch is a 1929 taper-wing Waco that has a CJ 6-10 Leer jet strapped to its bottom. 

The plane may look vintage, but it's only in its first year of flight. The plane was created in January, and pilot Jeff Boerboon said it's something special to fly.

"It's hard to explain it, but when you come up to a vertical line and you stop and hover right there and you push the rest of the power forward and you continue to climb straight up, you can't do that in any other airplane. So it's really really unique and very cool."

Gates to the 2014 airshow open at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday and, weather providing, the flying will start at 10 a.m.
