Greetings from The Aero Experience Team

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!

Fair St. Louis 2013 Airshow Reprise: Jive and Rifle RV-8 Precision Aerobatics

http://aeroexperience.blogspot.com/As we prepare for the 2014 Midwest Aviation airshow season, The Aero Experience salutes the RV-8 team of Jerry "Jive" Kerby and Joe "Rifle" Shetterly by sharing some of our photos from Fair St. Louis 2013.  Our team descended on St. Louis Downtown Airport, located just a few miles flying distance from the St. Louis riverfront and the Gateway Arch, and captured the airshow performance from start to finish.  We combined our coverage of the solo and team performances in this extended photo essay.  Here's to a great airshow season for "Jive" and "Rifle" in 2014 from The Aero Experience Team: Carmelo Turdo, Mark Nankivil, Fred Harl and Leo Cachat.
