Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


The Aero Experience is a celebration of Midwest aviation and aerospace achievement. We invite you to join us as we explore the treasures of Midwest aviation through first-hand experiences. Our contributors take turns flying lead, and we are always looking for new destinations. Check in with The Aero Experience frequently to see where we will land today, and then go out and have your own aero experiences!

Aero Experience Mourns the Loss of Fair St. Louis Airshow Performer Greg Poe

Greg Poe at Fair St. Louis Airshow July 3, 2011

The Aero Experience mourns the loss of Fair St. Louis performer Greg Poe of an apparent heart attack yesterday at the age of 57.  St. Louis airshow fans were thrilled by his performance three weeks ago, and he was gracious in greeting attendees at the special needs air show held at St. Louis Downtown Airport July 3.  According to the Greg Poe Airshows web site, the airshow team and Ryan J. Poe Foundation will continue to function in some format in the near future. 

Those wishing to make contributions to Greg’s memory can do so by making a donation to the Ryan J. Poe Foundation, 518 Dishman Place, Caldwell, ID 83605. Tributes can also be made by credit card via phone at (208) 455-0700.  Visit for more details.
