Any size plane and any power plant is OK (Actual turbine jets will not be able to fly, we just don't have enough room. But please bring them out to show them off!).

Here is our flyer:

Great time last year. If I remember correctly I think there were 30 pilots and more than 60 planes.

I'll have my Mustang there... assuming I can get around to replacing the gear! Bent the heck out of the struts when I got too slow on a landing! Looks like this one:

Our main raffle prize will be a DLE-55RA. Big, rear-exhaust gas burner, just like in my Mustang! We in Louisville have had a lot of good luck with the DLE engines. Plus we will have several smaller prizes to give away! Whoo Hoo!

Hey Tom, I'm looking forward to attending this year's "Warbirds Over Louisville". You guys put on a great event and what a great flying field. I believe you have a 500 foot paved runway with a parallel "Golf Course Quality" grass runway that is a little bit longer. Anyway, great site, great event and good food. I will probably bring the 110 inch WS Westland Lysander ( Its for SALE ) this year and the giant scale Top Flite F4U Corsair. Glad to hear that you guys are including a DLE 55cc gas engine among the other raffel items.

You did a great job last year...30 pilots and more than 70 planes. Had a great time. See you in a few weeks.
