Default WARBIRDS OVER PUNTA GORDA

For all you warbird lovers our club will be holding our 1st. WARBIRD fly in on march 12th & 13th. If you are anywhere near S. W. Fl. Please come on down and bring your pride and joy with you ( I mean your warbird ). We have a very nice 800x75' grass runway . We will be hoping to make this a great time for everyone who attends. There will be a $10. landing fee. It is listed in the AMA at $15. but it is only $10. You can get info from the AMA contest calender or you can call me direct at 941-423-9260 or e-mail me for any info.

thanks BOB

Great Jon, looking forward to seeing the guys from the Cape. How about Sarasota and Venice ? I know there are some warbird flyers there. I talked to BOB at ARFPROS and they said they would come, I test flew their Val last week and she flys good.

thanks bob

HEY BOB,
Could you give the location and address of the field............I'm in Colorado, and I fly Warbirds. I might be in the area and would love to check it out. My Mom is going to be spending winters there in the near future. I'm looking at spending some time with her there also. Guess I'm going to have to bring some Warbirds down and get to know a few of the boys.

THANKS, CAPTAIN RON

Hey Captain you will love it down here if you come to visit make sure you bring you war birds with you. Port Charlotte is about 30 miles south of Sarasota and approx. 20 miles north of Fort Myers on the south west coast. Punta Gorda is a little resort type town at the southern end of Port Charlotte. If you go on our web site (WWW.CHARLOTTERC.COM ) it will have directions from rt. 17. The field is located approx. 4 or 5 miles from Interstate 75 exit. We have a beautifull grass runway with lots of airspace just have to watch out you do not hit the cows wich are a good distance away. The only planes I have now are all War Birds , I do not like to fly anything else because it knocks me out of sync for the war birds. So far it looks like we will have flyers from Cape Coral, our club and Venice and Sarasota and another local club and maybe Naples coming. I'am hoping it turns out to be successfull so we can do it every year. I want it to be a layed back atmosphere, fly if you like or just sit around and throw the bull.
you can reach me at 941-423-9260. Feel free to call and I will try to ans. any of your questions.


thanks bob

I also have a Byron P-51, Top Flite Gs P-51 Arf and also thr P-51-B built from the kit and A GS. Top-Flite Corsair flying and one in the box. and I just flew my Val last week, and I have a Jerry Bates P-40-B. I have not flown the Bates P-40B or the Byron P-51 yet I 'am waiting till after the Punta Gorda air show, I promised the Military History Museum in Punta Gorda that I would waite . I will bring them to help set up their booth for the air show. My buddy just finished the 'Top-Flite GS P-47 arf, and it is a beauty , it is much more impressive in person then in photo's. he finished per the kit and it looks just like your"s . I want one now!!!
