SpectaculAir at Rushford, MN promises to be spectacular


Fri, Sep 20th, 2013
Posted in Rushford Arts & Culture

The Rushford Municipal Airport at Rushford, Minn., presents the first-ever SpectaculAir air show, September 27 and 28, 2013, at the airport. The event, sponsored by the City of Rushford, Mead & Hunt, Inc., and approximately a dozen local businesses features two aerobatic performance shows featuring Dick Schulz, Erik Edgren, and Darrell Massman, a professional parachute demonstration team, as well as live music, static displays, vendors, and food concessions.

According to Carolyn Dunham, airport commissioner and event co-chair, “This is a great opportunity to showcase our airport and to show off our facilities to folks who may not have ever been out here, as well as to have some great family fun with the entire community and region. There is great potential here to link our growing business community with the outside world through air transport and visiting pilots and tourists the year around.”

Charla Miertschin, Rushford Airport Commission chair and event co-chair, adds, “SpectaculAir will bring together visitors from our community and the region at-large, volunteer groups and individuals, and supporters from the region. We have three spectacular performers and a professional parachute demonstration team that will entertain spectators, young and old alike – showcasing and building excitement in aviation.”

Recent successful 2013 events held at the Rushford Municipal Airport include Jumps for Hope, a tandem skydiving fundraising event for cancer drew 115 jumpers from the community and region in late June. In mid-July, 47 planes with their pilots and crews attended a fly-in breakfast sponsored by the local Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 919.

SpectaculAir events kick off on Friday with presentations by the aerobatic pilots at the Rushford-Peterson school campuses followed by a teaser of aerobatic flying over Peterson and Rushford to drum up enthusiasm for the upcoming air show.

Airport grounds open on Saturday morning at 10 a.m. Visitors can view the various static displays and vendors around the airport and enjoy live music by the Cedar Valley Blue Grass Band. A brats and dogs lunch will be served at midday. The first aerobatic show begins at noon and the second follows at 3 p.m.
