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!

By Carmelo Turdo

Thunder Over Louisville is ready to rock the riverfront this afternoon with a variety of airshow performers that is sure to keep all eyes glued to the skies.  Then aerial entertainment will range from Nick Coleman in his tiny Tailorcraft to the sweeping formations of Team Aerodynamics, and from the chugging radial engines of the T-28s from the Trojan Horsemen to the grace and power of the U.S. Air Force F-22A Raptor stealth fighter and the U.S. Navy Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron.  The Aero Experience was in Louisville Friday for the airshow practice sessions and kick off our Midwest airshow season with our Thunder Over Louisville preview, with more highlights appearing in the coming week.  Special thanks to the Kentucky Derby Festival and Thunder Over Louisville staff for assisting The Aero Experience in our coverage of the festivities this year.
