Creve Coeur Airport, home of the Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum and many vintage aircraft, hosted their Vintage Aeroplane Fly-In Saturday. In addition to the vintage aircraft on display and flying throughout the day, other activities included Young Eagles Flights by EAA Chapter 32 and interactive aircraft display from the airport's Army Aviation Heritage Foundation Gateway Chapter featuring an OH-58 helicopter and F-4 Phantom II cockpit. The museum's Canadian JN-4C Canuck, Travel Air 4000, several Waco biplanes and the only airworthy St. Louis Cardinal were available on the apron, and the museum was open to the public at no charge. Several warbirds, including a Douglas Skyraider, Boeing Stearman trainers and Greg Vallero's AT-6F Texan, were also on display and flying throughout the day. We thank the Creve Coeur Airport staff, the Historic Aircraft Restoration Museum, Stearman Flight, and all who participated for their hospitality.
The Aero Experience was proud to promote and cover the event, and we will post several stories this week bringing the highlights of this great Midwest Aviation event to our audience. In this third edition, we take a look at the warbirds flying that day, including the Stearman Flight formation, Greg Vallero's AT-6F Texan and Eric Downing's Douglas Skyraider.
