Friday Fly-In Photo: only 24 days to go folks! The 47th National Stearman Fly-In isn't just a "fly-in"... it's a "fly-in, fly-out, and fly-around-and-around..." There are Stearmans flying every day, almost all day, sometimes alone, and sometimes in together. Sometimes you'll see a formation of Stearmans off in the distance over the cornfields and there's nothing in your field of view to tell you what year it is... Hey, the airplanes don't know it's not 1941!

Folks, it truly is a wonderful experience that you don’t want to miss. Even if you can only make it for a day or two, it’s well worth it! Photo by Ted Bevenour

Friday Fly-In Photo: 38 days to go! At the National Stearman Fly-In, you don’t just sit behind the fence and watch the occasional Stearman fly by... nooo... you can come right out to the airplanes in the tram and see them up close. At some fly-outs, you can even stand right next to the runway and get shots like this! I took this in 2011!

Don’t miss it! September 3-9, 2018
