It didn't take long for the Owensboro Air Show to become a massive event that would be missed if we didn't have one. And, in 2022, we didn't have one, and, yes, we missed it.

Congratulations to anyone who can find a place on the Owensboro riverfront to view this exciting event, because that's no easy feat to accomplish. But I find it very gratifying to be able to hear and SEE all of the extraordinary aircraft from anywhere in the city.

See Inside a 1928 Passenger Airplane AND See Owensboro from Way Up in the Sky

I was fortunate enough to be a passenger aboard a 1928 Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT-B Transcontinental Air Transport. We flew all the way around Owensboro.  It was amazing to get a bird's-eye view of the city from inside such a beautiful old aircraft.
