The St. Charles event is a premier fly-in with many great warbirds attending. Last year there were also some 3d planes and no conflicts were noticed by me. The people that work this event are very fair and I am sure everyone will get to fly.

Bob (Injun) brings some great warbirds to this event so look him up and say hi.

I can't make it this year Bob so have a good one.

Yes there will be time for 3D'ing. But please dont bring shotguns. Unless your going to shoot down some warbirds as well. This year were planing on dividing airtime up into blocks, (aerobatics, warbirds, open flying) Come out and fly what ever you have. Guarenteed a good time.

Default St. Charles, IL Fly-In

I'm going to attend the fly-in on Saturday and I would like to know when the festivities will start as well as end on Saturday so I can make my travel arrangements.

Any input would be helpful.

Thanks,

Matt
