Fair St. Louis Airshow Performers Arrive at St. Louis Downtown Airport

By Carmelo Turdo
Fair St. Louis is set to start tomorrow, and five airshows are planned for July 4-6 over the Mississippi River near the Gateway Arch grounds. The airshow performers will be flying from St. Louis Downtown Airport, only a few miles distant from the riverfront, and they were in the air today rehearsing their show routines. The Aero Experience was at the airport, along with our friends, accomplished photographers Larry Titchenal and Chase Kohler, to capture a preview of the available airshow performers.
