In the previous posts, we've highlighted the Canadian Forces Snowbirds and the civilian aerobatic performers featured at the Memphis Airshow last weekend. The Aero Experience visited the Millington Regional Jetport Friday prior to the Friday night airshow, so visiting aircraft were beginning to arrive during our stay. We were able to see some of those arrivals along with Robert Ford's Paradise Airshows AT-6A Texan based at the University of the South Airport in Sewanee, TN. Other attraction included the Beech AT-11 "Three Hits and a Miss" and a Eurocopter EC-130B4 from the Memphis Medical Center Air Ambulance Service. We hope you enjoy another look at the Memphis Airshow!
