For the love of πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯: A semitruck with 3 jet engines

It's coming to Duluth this summer.

What happens when you combine a jet plane with a semitruck? You get something like this: A flame-spitting, beast-on-wheels that can go up to 375 mph.

Its name is Shockwave and it's going to be at the Duluth Airshow this summer.

Airshow President Ryan Kern said in a statement the truck has three aircraft jet engines, and more than 36,000 horsepower.

"It is one of the most sought after performers performing at air shows across the country,” Kern said.

Which makes sense – it's the fastest semitruck in the world, after all.

The truck's website says it's based in Springfield, Missouri, and travels all over the the U.S. However, this will only be the second time it's been to Minnesota. Last time was in 2014, according to a schedule.

If you'd like to watch the truck race an airplane – that's one of it's signature acts – you can get your tickets for the airshow here. It's June 4-5.

And you can watch a preview of the truck in action here.

More about the airshow

The annual Duluth Airshow will feature more than a dozen other performers.

Two of the "world's best aerial demonstrations" will also be at the show – the United States Navy’s Blue Angels and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds.

"Our airshow has become known as one of the best in the country and the top performers want to be a part of our show," President Kern said in a previous statement.
