Airshow Performer John Mohr Quietly Retires from Airshow Circuit
By Carmelo Turdo
Stearman pilot extraordinaire John Mohr, veteran of Midwest Airshows, is reportedly retiring from the airshow circuit. Mohr, winner of the Bill Barber and ICAS Art Scholl Memorial Showmanship Awards, has devoted 25 years to thrilling audiences and spreading the joy of aviation. His ability to make his stock Stearman virtually defy the laws of physics are well-known to Fair St. Louis airshow and EAA AirVenture audiences in recent years. The Aero Experience pays tribute to John Mohr with the following pictorial and video presentation from EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012 and several past Fair St. Louis airshows.
