Greetings from The Aero Experience Team


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 Airshow 2013 Ramp Action and Performer Preview

The Aero Experience Fair St. Louis Airshow Team Coverage continues with the first day of serious ramp activity and the practice session over the St. Louis riverfront.  Today's activities began at the 10am briefing for performers and ground crews at the airport fire station right off the Jet Aviation ramp where the aircraft are parked.  The practice airshow ran from about 12:00pm-3:00pm, and several sponsor and media flights were flown all afternoon.  This was also a "practice airshow" for The Aero Experience team as we try different locations around the airport for maximum coverage.  We have for you some of the thousands of photos taken today by our team.  Many more and unique views of this week's aero experiences will come your way  in the coming days. (NOTE, as of this afternoon, Patty Wagstaff's aircraft has arrived, but she was not on site yet.  Also, Skip Stewart came in late this afternoon.  More on this tomorrow!).
