Wings Over Whiteman Features Top Civilian Acts

By Carmelo Turdo
Wings Over Whiteman will feature top civilian airshow performers, including the Trojan Phlyers, Aerostars, P-51D Mustang, and BT-13 Valiant.  Thanks to the Whiteman AFB Public Affairs office, and under very specific instructions, The Aero Experience was allowed to view a portion of the practice session today.  The base was abuzz with activity preparing for this weekend's airshow, including the setup of static display aircraft and coordination media events.  Here is a preview of what you can see this weekend at Wings Over Whiteman:

Trojan Phlyers     

P-51D Mustang "Gunfighter"


BT-13 Valiant
