Our 2017 NMAD to support Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation is now in the record books. And we raised more than we did last year. Thanks to all who helped for set up Friday. The day officially started with Danville Boy Scout Troop 301 presenting the flag as our national anthem played over the loud speakers. There were planes of all types and sizes represented on the flight line for the crowds to look at. There was a aircraft in the air form around 8:30 in the morning till after 6 pm in the afternoon. The flight simulator tent was busy all day.

Special Thanks to all who raised money to support HVAF. Bill Clontz is certainly the master. Tom Carlyle really beat the bushes again this year for over 60 items from local businesses and Mark Marshall for the Tempur Sealy donation as well as Tom Hatfield for the Richard Petty driving experience. Lots of very happy raffle winners, we sold over 120 pulled pork and pulled chicken lunches and lots and lots of raffle tickets.

The crowd really enjoyed the noon air show. A very wide variety of aircraft, first time many have seen an actual gas turbine powered rc model, Rege Hall's Turbinator and Ryan Jones Super Viper. Faron Trosper and Harold Etling opened the noon demos with an RC skydiver, and there was about every type aircraft flown for the crowd.(photos below courtesy of Rege Hall, Bryan Baumer and John Louden) Video of the pit area at our event.
