Coming Soon to an Airport Near You
June 9-11, 2017
Mark your calendars for the weekend of June 9-11 for the Lincoln AirFest. Expanding on the success of the event held in 2016, the 2017 AirFest include an airshow on Saturday that will feature numerous noted aerobatic performers and formation teams. Hot air balloons, powered parachute demonstrations, a USAF parachute team, and military aircraft flybys are scheduled. Also on the agenda is a STOL demonstration event to be held on Sunday (only) and dinner dance to be held on Friday evening at an airport hangar.
The AirFest is being organized by the Lincoln Regional Airport Foundation in cooperation with the city of Lincoln. A growing group of corporate and community sponsors have signed on to make the AirFest happen.
Besides the airshow, there will be a large static display of aircraft, food and drink vendors, and a variety of programs. This will be another
opportunity to feature the Lincoln airport to the local community and the region at large. EAA Chapter 1541 will be supporting the event, as it did last year, with AirFest volunteer teams and pancake breakfasts to be held both Saturday and Sunday mornings. A great website is already up and running.
