Welcome to the this web page for the 2014 Warbird Fly In

Click here for the event flyer.

This year will be our 7th annual Warbird event, with each year turning out to be a bigger and better event. Everybody loves to watch Warbirds fly, any type, any size. Come out and enjoy the event. Our event is AMA sanctioned again this year and we will have hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, soda and desserts like in the past years.

Registration begins around 8 am and then it is open flying all day. We usually have a raffle and trophy presentation between 2 pm and 3 pm in the afternoon, then back to flying or guys can cut out if they wish. We will have club members act as flight line monitors, however, we do encourage you to have a spotter with you while flying. If you have an aircraft you would like to fly with a clear airspace. let us know, we can most likely arrange this.

Early to say, but with all the moisture this winter, we should have a great field this coming year.

How do you get here? We are located jsut east of the Danville Kroger store on East Twin Bridges Road. The main runway is oriented approximately 305 degrees by 125 degrees and is 70 feet wide and 650 feet long. Lots of space to fly. If you are looking for an address, the field is located at approximately 178 E Twin Bridges Rd (on some maps as Shady Lane), Danville, IN 46122. Our GPS coordinates are: N 39 45 096 W 086 29 800 Please see the map below.

7th Annual event on 28-June-14. Wow! Great event, great turnout. First, we want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended and supported our event. Special THANKS to the guys who helped get the field ready for the event and to those who helped run the event. We had several out of town guests and we sincerely hope they enjoyed their day. We had 40 registered pilots and served lunch to over 70. We had lots of cool planes for the raffles and pilots drawings. We also had many spectators for the event, love to see the looks young kids faces when we fly.

The event started around 8 am with presentation of the flag and National Anthem at 9 am. Then came a short pilot's meeting and off to flying. The weather was less than perfect through the lunch time, brief periods of light rain and muggy. Around 2 pm we decided to conduct the drawings and present the awards in order to beat some fast approaching storm cells. We held the drawings and all the weather split and went north and south of us and out came the sun. We had several more hours of nice flying. There were lots of warbird flights today. There were aircraft ranging from micros to flat foamies to larger foamies to large scale impressive aircraft. Turned out to be a great day for a warbird fly in and there was a plane in the air all day long, even during the rain.

Best of Show - Bill Clontz's really nice RC Aerodyne Cobra. It has 800 mm blades and a truly authentic weathered paint job applied.

Pilot's Choice - John Hudak's Top Flite Focke Wulf 190. DLE 55 powered, the aircraft was stripped then fiber glassed and painted. Very nice details on panel lines and weathering.

People's Choice - Stephen Woods Razorback P-47 Thunderbolt.

The pilots drawing winners : Phil Bean - FMS 1400 mm T-28, Ray Courtney - flat F-22 RTF and Daniel Burton - RTF Ares P-51 Mustang.
