The Aero Experience coverage of the Cameron, MO Airshow begins with the sponsor/VIP rides at nearby Midwest National Air Center in Excelsior Springs, MO. Adam Baker, Greg Colyer, and the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team were ready to fly late in the afternoon on Thursday as their guest riders arrived. Sponsor/VIP rides are an important and tangible way for event organizers and performers to show appreciation for community leaders and business owners who support and promote airshows, and they also provide great photo opportunities! The Aero Experience was privileged to be on site to record the flights and the priceless reactions from the riders as they returned. Special thanks to the Cameron Airshow event organizers and the crews for allowing us to obtain this exclusive coverage of these flights. We will condense the flight coverage here with these highlights:
Check back soon for continuing coverage of the Cameron Airshow in the coming days!
