SpectaculAir 2016 invites you to “Come fly with us!!”


Mon, Sep 5th, 2016
Posted in Rushford Business Announcements

This is just one of the WWII Warbirds that will be on sight during the 2016 SpectaculAir Warbirds Expo. The Stinson L-5 Warbird was a WWII era liaison aircraft used by all branches of the U.S. military. Capable of operating from short unimproved airstrips, the L-5 “Sentinel” delivered personnel, critical intelligence and needed supplies to the front line troops. On return flights, wounded soldiers were often evacuated to rear area field hospitals for medical treatment, boosting the morale of combat troops fighting in remote areas.

Reservations are now open for businesses, groups, families, and individuals to book flights on one of four WWII Warbirds featured in the September 25 SpectaculAir 2016 Warbirds Expo at the Rushford Municipal Airport.

The City of Rushford Airport Commission is partnering with the Minnesota Wing of the Commemorative Air Force to present SpectaculAir 2016 Warbirds Expo.

The public is invited for an exciting day filled with World War II aircraft, veterans of all ages, live music and dancing, our own 55Y Mess Hall, the CAF PX tent, flights in the vintage aircraft, classic cars along Hangar Alley, and Hangar Talks presentations, and much, much more.

In order to fund this event, flights in the vintage aircraft are available to businesses, groups, families, and individuals on a first-come-first-served basis. The funding program is called “Come fly with us!!’

Interested parties or persons can select a flight in any of the following Warbirds at the designated cost as shown in the table below. Flights take about 30 minutes. For the SpectaculAir 2016 event, the number of available flights are indicated along with the cost per flight, which depends on the type of aircraft selected:

• Navy SNJ-T6 Texan “pilot maker” used to train Navy pilots, four flights available, $325

• BT-13 Valiant, “the Vultee Vibrator”, five flights available, $200

• PT-22 Ryan Recruit used by the Army Air Corp, seven flights available, $150

•Stinson L-5 Sentinel, the heavy duty workhorse of WW II, eight flights available, $95

In order to Come Fly With Us, individuals, families, business, and other groups can select someone to honor and reserve a flight time, or they may wish to purchase a whole plane’s-worth of flights. Only people 18 years of age or older may sign up for a flight.

Visitors can reserve a flight of their choosing now. Reservations should be made by check payable to the City of Rushford. Write S’16 and the name of the aircraft you have chosen and the time preferred in the memo line of the check. Send your payment to Dr. Carolyn S. Dunham, c/o City of Rushford, PO 430, Rushford, Minn. 55971.

Others may consider making a donation to SpectaculAir without booking a flight. In this case, just put S’16 donation in the check’s memo line. SpectaculAir events are a part of several events sponsored by the Ci .....
