Countdown to Midwest Airport Fun Days: Warbirds Arrive at Museum

The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum has begun its “Countdown to Midwest Airport Fun Days” with the arrival of several warbirds that will be on static display during the June 7-8 event.  The St. Louis Downtown Airport community recently welcomed a Douglas DC-3 cargo aircraft and the rare Lockheed PV-2 Harpoon, “Attu Warrior,” to the Ideal Aviation ramp for pre-event festivities starting early next week.  More activities are planned for the coming week, so check the event web page for more updates.

 

 

There’s Something In the Air: Midwest Airport Fun Days Offers a Variety of Aerial Adventures

This new Midwest Aviation event offers free, family-friendly fun to the public with our thriving aviation community!  Produced by the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum, Ideal Aviation, EAA Chapter 64 and The Aero Experience, Midwest Airport Fun Days will provide an opportunity for our visitors to experience aviation first-hand and have a lot of fun at the same time.

There will be something for everyone – tour the new exhibits at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum; find something interesting in the Expo Hangar (courtesy of Ideal Aviation); check out the aircraft on static display; look to the sky as local pilots fly their aircraft; meet special guest Pitts Special airshow pilot Patrick McAlee; and take a flight in the MO CAF B-25 Mitchell bomber “Show Me”, MO CAF Grumman TBM Avenger torpedo bomber, Kevin Kegin’s 1941 Waco or Greg Vallero’s AT-6 Texan.  Sunday’s activity will include Young Eagle Flights sponsored by EAA Chapter 64.  There will be great food and music to keep everyone having a great time!
