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!

Looking Forward to the Cape Girardeau, MO Air Festival by Looking Back: 2008
By Leo Cachat
The 2008 show was a one day event held on July 4th. The show was put together at the last second, and was free to the public. It also included a night show. Participants included: Julie Clark in her T-34 Mentor, Mike Rinker in his SU-26, Angel 7, Paul Stender and his Dodge Ramjet truck, Lima Lima Flight Team and the U.S. Army Golden Knights. This show, although small, was very entertaining, combining top-tier acts with a medium-sized airport venue. Here are some views of the 2008 event:
