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!

Monocoupe Fly-In Draws LaFayette Foundation Aircraft - October 2, 2009

Other aircraft are featured at the Monocoupe Fly-In. Planes from the LaFayette Foundation were visiting this weekend. We regret to report that one of the LaFayette Foundation aircraft had an incident on landing yesterday in the windy conditions, but the pilot is fine. However the aircraft was trucked back to Colorado. Please visit the LaFayette Foundation website at for more information about the collection of World War I replica aircraft.
