Fair St. Louis Opening Airshow Features Variety of Civilian and Military Performers

By Carmelo Turdo
Fair St. Louis held their first airshow of 2019 this afternoon, one of five airshows planned for July 4-6 over the Mississippi River near the Gateway Arch grounds. The airshow performers were based at St. Louis Downtown Airport, only a few miles distant from the riverfront. The Aero Experience was again at the airport to capture these views of the aircraft as they took off and made their tactical breaks for landing. We hope you enjoy this brief review of the first Fair St. Louis airshow.
