Next year’s Biplane Expo in Bartlesville, Okla., will be the last of the annual fly-ins that began in 1987, organizers announced.
The National Biplane Association said increasing costs and staffing requirements convinced the board to end the event. The final Biplane Expo is scheduled for June 4 through 6, 2009.
During the past 23 years, nearly 2,500 biplanes have attended the Biplane Expo, along with more than 7,000 regular general aviation aircraft and 75,000 people.
Fly along with the US Coast Guard's Advanced Helicopter Rescue Training program. That's where best pilots, mechanics and rescue swimmers train to save lives.
