Over Southwest Illinois In a Piper Cub With the Fly Now! The Movie Crew
By Carmelo Turdo
The Fly Now! The Movie crew took advantage of a Midwest late winter warm spell last week by taking a Piper Cub flight over southwest Illinois. The Aero Experience Founder Carmelo Turdo flew with Executive Producer Brian Kissinger accompanied by pilot Bill Aanstad in his Cub. The Cubs took off from Sackman Field in Columbia, IL and landed at Sparta Community Airport (Hunter Field) in time for lunch before returning to Columbia. Along the way to Sparta, IL and back, we gathered photos and video for later use in the upcoming reality aviation documentary, Fly Now! The Movie, now in it's early production. We hope these views from the flight will encourage you to follow and support the production of this new independent film.
The Aero Experience is proud to be part of the Fly Now! The Movie team!
