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!

Coles County Airport Airshow 2018: Phillips 66 Aerostars

By Carmelo Turdo
The Aero Experience continues our coverage of the 2018 Coles County Airport Airshow with a look at the Phillips 66 Aerostars. Their graceful four-ship formations and opposing passes filled the afternoon skies continuously with smoke trails. The team previously flew radial-engine Yak-52TW trainers in airshows across the nation, including for the large crowds at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, and now flies their show with the modern Extra 300/L. Here we feature the Phillips 66 Aerostars in the air and as they come and go from the hot ramp. We thank the Phillips 66 Aerostars and Coles County Memorial Airport for their hospitality.
