There is so much to see and do here, this only scratches the surface - I missed the homebuilts, Fun Fly Zone, helicopters, Pioneer Airport, tethered balloons, drones, autogiros, seaplanes, and much, much more - I imagine that Jcarr will have a lot of pics of things I missed (and better quality, too), but here you go. Link to the first post:
Waco UBF - Waco made (and makes) a lot of stunning aircraft. This is a show winner. Fairchild 71 - built in 1929 Beech Model 17 - Staggerwing A lot of people think the Staggerwing is the most beautiful airplane ever built. This one is stunning. Stearman - from the Warbird side V35 Bonanza - love the V-Tail, this is a gorgeous example Airshow. Yes, that’s a Beech Bonanza doing aerobatics (F33C) The iconic little yellow airplane. Model T’s - all of them. Ford is a sponsor and was running tours of the grounds in them. Replica, but cool nonetheless Blue Origin - presume that this is the New Shepard? You can use your old Corvair engine in an airplane! Gamebird - this airplane flew in the airshow. As a demo, trying to drum up sales. Helio Courier - lousy photo, but I love these planes. Incredible STOL performance. Those leading edge slats drop automatically at low speeds, further reducing stall speed. Howard H500. Beautiful airplane, and big, too. Only 22 were ever built, and there’s another one right behind this one. Waco biplane in the airshow - Screamin’ Sasquatch. Sports a P&W 985 radial - AND a GE CJ610 jet engine. Weird to hear this little biplane making jet noises Flagship Detroit DC-3. Great guys showing this one - out of Nashville, I believe - I was waitlisted for a 6pm ride in this, but didn’t get on. Interior of the Flagship Detroit - just like it was back in the day This Ford is a ‘64. Shown by a muscle car restorer in Chippewa Falls Bucker Jungmeister upside down, Beech 18 right side up. The Jungmeister has only 160 HP, so aerobatics in it are slow- which allows you take in the grace and beauty of what the pilot is doing more easily than the high powered aircraft, IMHO. It also requires a lot of momentum management. OK, so the Shorts isn’t the prettiest airplane in the world, but it does its job. Stearman in the Vintage area. Tic-tac-toe. I presume this ended in a cat’s game. Waco YKC and Monocoupe 90 A beautiful Cessna 182 - old school square tail. Hopefully right side up.
