CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Sean D. Tucker has been living in the skies for the past 30 years, wowing fans and himself along the way.

The famed air show pilot has won countless awards for his stunts and will spend his final performance as a solo act at the Cleveland National Air show.

The California native started flying at the age of 17, after wanting to conquer his fears.

"I love the challenge of flying, I love the opportunity to push your boundaries."

The 'third dimension' as he calls it, is a pretty cool place he adds.

In between air shows Tucker spends his time mentoring the youth interested in aviation.
