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.

Coles County Airport Airshow Preview

By Carmelo Turdo
The biennial Coles County Airport Airshow provided national and regional airshow performers for the large crowd at Mattoon, IL on Saturday. The Midwest Aviation event is a staple of this central Illinois community, offering first-class entertainment without the cost and travel of going to a larger venue. The Aero Experience was there to cover the day's performances, courtesy of a flight in our friend Aaron Tarlow's Comanche, Grace.  In this first feature story, we have a sample of what we experienced at the event, with much more coverage of the hot ramp and airshow to come.
