Looking Back on the 2019 Cape Girardeau Air Festival: USN Blue Angels and Much More

By Fred Harl
The 2019 Cape Girardeau Air Festival was an outstanding Midwest Aviation event held last May. The Aero Experience team was on site to view the practice airshow as well as the static display aircraft flying throughout the day. Here we look back on the activities on the Friday before the airshow with some new material from the archives. The Aero Experience thanks Cape Girardeau Regional Airport management, Cape Aviation, Cape Copters and all those who worked to prepare this great Midwest Aviation event. Their hospitality and professionalism made our visit enjoyable and productive.
