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!

American Waco Club Fly-In 2014: Fly Out to Aero Estates Part 2

By Mark Nankivil
The annual American Waco Club Fly-In was held at Creve Coeur Airport this weekend, and The Aero Experience was in the middle of the action.  Part 2 of this series of three features also will capture one of the highlights of the event - the Saturday morning Fly Out to Aero Estates Airport in nearby Belleville, IL for a neighborly gathering of Waco owners, families and friends.  Also included here are some views of the aircraft after their return to Creve Coeur Airport.  Cabin and tandem seat Wacos arrived from Creve Coeur Airport between 8am and 9am, and most of the guests gathered for breakfast hosted by Mark and Elaine Harter, owner of the gorgeous blue and white Waco YKS-7 featured on many previous posts.  A few hours later, many of the takeoffs and static displays back at Creve Coeur Airport were captured for this post.  Organizers of the event from the American Waco Club and Creve Coeur Airport should be commended for producing another successful Fly-In that brought together Waco owners from across the country for another valuable Midwest Aviation aero experience!
