Calling All Stearmans to the 25th Quad City Air Show
May 18, 2011 — The Quad City Air Show, one of the country’s top civilian air shows, celebrates its silver 25th anniversary at this year’s event, scheduled for June 18-19 at the Davenport, Iowa, Airport (DVN). To mark the milestone, organizers are inviting Stearman owners and pilots to attend in hopes of opening the air show with 25 Stearmans. Like AirVenture Oshkosh 2011, this year’s event is also a designated Tier 1 event for the Centennial of Naval Aviation celebration and will feature the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. Stearman owners wishing to attend are asked to contact Ken Hopper, EAA 259785, air show president-founder-air boss, as soon as possible. Plans are to provide rooms, some fuel, local transportation, and limited VIP passes to the air show as well as invitations to the president’s Friday night party to as many as we can. Call Ken at 563-349-0044 or send an e-mail. Learn more about the air show here.
