Midwest Warbird Fly-In and Formation Cl
(3rd Annual Glenn Smith Memorial Fly-In)
Date: May 15-17, 2015


It's almost time to gather in Rockford, Illinois for our popular spring fly-in.
This event offers warbird owners and operators a chance to fly formation,
eat some good food, and and enjoy the camaraderie of great friends.

Plan to arrive on Thursday, May 14th, because the action starts on Friday morning!

We have negotiated special fuel prices and hotel deals for attendees. Formation instruction will be given on an as-available basis by qualified formation instructors. Single-ship flying opportunities are also available for those who do not want to fly formation. All aircraft types are welcome to attend. Common types are generally paired, such as straight-wing jets, swept-wing jets, recip trainers, etc., so bring some friends!

Lunch and dinner are provided each day, as well as transportation to/from the hotels.
We have an excellent guest speaker to entertain us on Saturday night. Col. John Casper flew F-105s over North Vietnam and Laos (and was shot down and rescured twice!). He was also an F-5 and T-38 instructor, A-10 Detachment Commander, F-16 pilot and Director of Operations, and held numerous other postions in his career, which spanned 29 years and 5000+ hours in fighters. He has some stories to tell!

Door Prizes! We are pleased to announce that Alpha Systems AOA will be giving away one of their fantastic Eagle AOA systems (valued at $1995!) to a lucky attendee.
