Greetings!



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!

Cape Girardeau Regional Air Festival - Heroes and Legends - Set to Take Off This Weekend

By Carmelo Turdo
The Cape Girardeau Regional Air Festival, aptly labeled "Heroes and Legends," will take off Friday evening and Saturday after a two-year hiatus.  The Aero Experience proudly welcomes the Cape Girardeau Regional Air Festival back on our schedule, and we look forward to sending Carmelo Turdo and Leo Cachat to bring a preview of the airshow and the Friday evening festivities to our growing audience.  The return of the Cape Girardeau Regional Air Festival, especially in light of the absence of military aerial performers (2010 headliners were the U.S. Navy Blue Angels), indicates a willingness of airport management and the surrounding community to support this family-friendly Midwest Aviation event.

The Aerostar Aerobatic Team - Yak-52TW
