Pancake Breakfast 7-11am

Featured Aircraft:

Black Hawk
The Black Hawk helicopter series can perform a wide array of missions, including the tactical transport of troops, electronic warfare, and aeromedical evacuation.
For the past 10 years the pilots of the Scream’n Rebel Airshow Team have honored our Veterans by attending events and airshows throughout the Midwest.
The Pitts Special is a light aerobatic biplane designed by Curtis Pitts. The Pitts Special dominated world aerobatic competition in the 1960s and 1970s and, even today, remains a potent competition aircraft in the lower categories.
The North American B-25 “Mitchell” bombers, named after Gen. “Billy” Mitchell, were the most effective medium bombers of World War II, probably best remembered for the carrier-launched Doolittle Raid against Japan in April of 1942.
The B-17 Flying Fortress has become, for many reasons, an icon of American power and a symbol of its Air Force.
Rugged, roomy, powerful, and above all amphibious, the Grumman Goose can go anywhere. Its boat hull and retractable landing gear provide the ability to take off from and land on a runway or the water, so the Goose can get to places most aircraft can't.
The A-10 Thunderbolt II is an Americansingle-seat, twin-engine, straight-wingjet aircraft. It is the first U.S. Air Force aircraft designed exclusively for close air support.
