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 Arrivals: Aeroshell Aerobatic Team and Younkin Airshows

By Carmelo Turdo
Airshow performers arrived at St. Louis Downtown Airport Monday and Tuesday in preparation for the return of the Fair St. Louis airshow on July 4 after a four-year absence. The Aero Experience was there today to meet two of the headliners, the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team and Younkin Airshows. The performers are hosted this year by Ideal Aviation, the FBO on the west apron. The Members of the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team landed and parked their four North American Texans by mid morning, and they flew two flights with sponsors and local media representatives between noon and 1:00 P.M. Shortly thereafter, we met Matt Younkin and Jeff Gibbs as they worked on the Beech 18 in the hangar.
