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 Features Midwest Airshow Favorite Aeroshell Aerobatic Team

For over 25 years, the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team has been entertaining audiences throughout the country (formerly as the three-ship North American Aerobatic Team), and the team has become a staple at Midwest airshows such as the Salute to Veterans Corporation airshow in Columbia  Missouri and of course Fair St. Louis.  There is nothing like the grace and beauty of the four red and white North American Texans as they dance across the sky in perfect formation.  The bleating propellers on those four Pratt & Whitney 600hp Wasp engines is an unforgettable sound to behold, and one not forgotten.  Mark Henley has assumed lead this year, with Gene McNeely, Steve Gustafson and Bryan Regan rounding out the team.  The Aero Experience was again privileged to visit with the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team this year and have this photo essay of their performance over the Mississippi Riverfront and at St. Louis Downtown Airport:
