Jefferson City Fly-in/Open house Jefferson City Fly-in/Open house

Don't miss our big aviation event on Sat., 28 Sept., at Jefferson City Airport (JEF)! The local Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA), Chapter 429 and the Jefferson City Flying Service are hosting an Airport Open House/Fly-in on Saturday, 28 September 2013. The event is scheduled from 8 AM to 2 PM and will feature "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles." We will start off the day with a big PANCAKE BREAKFAST (small charge), free to pilots who fly in that day. Later we'll offer hot dogs from the grill. You will see all types of interesting aircraft on the field, including homebuilt (experimental) planes, standard planes, vintage planes, and helicopters. Our feature attraction this year is the B-25 Mitchell Bomber, "Show Me!" sponsored by Jefferson City's Corwin Automotive Group, Honda, Hyundai, Nissan. The bomber is owned by the Commemorative Air Force, Missouri Chapter, in St. Charles. You can get up close to this B-25 with authentic WWII paint scheme, but there will be no tours inside. To purchase a ride ($395) on the historic aircraft, call Bob Moore at 314-486-1205. Space is limited so call today. Other aircraft on display will include the famous Kansas City Dawn Patrol. You will be able to get up close to these WWI replica biplanes and talk with some of the bravest pilots alive. Jefferson City Flying Service will be offering airplane rides with certified flight instructors for $25 each. Come take a ride up over our state capital and see the Missouri river from high above. In addition to the aircraft we will have classic cars from a local car club on display. Also we will have a local remote control flying club displaying and demonstrating their RC planes of all types and sizes. And finally, back by popular demand, the EAA 429 train plane! The train plane gives free rides to kids 7 and under. This is going to be our best year yet, so come and join us at the Jefferson City Airport as we present our Trains, Planes and Automobiles for all to enjoy...there is no charge to enter so come on out and spend a day at the airport.
