GRANGEVILLE, Idaho – Warbird Weekend is approaching — July 12-13 — and two upcoming fund-raisers are planned to help fund fuel costs that support bringing more aircraft for the two-day show at the Idaho County Airport.
The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) has chosen Dallas Executive Airport (KRBD) as the location for its CAF National Airbase and corporate headquarters.
EAA Warbirds of America has chosen Stallion 51’s Lee Lauderback as its 2013 inductee into the 2013 EAA Sport Aviation Hall of Fame.
There are warbirds at every airshow. Oshkosh, of course, is a feast. But what always grabs me are the veteran GA aircraft adapted for military use. They say to me that “our airplanes” are not toys, but capable, useful flying machines. Some military pilots believed differently, but I’m sticking to my story!

The surest sign of winter in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., is the appearance of some unusually big birds migrating south. These birds, the Collings Foundation B-17G and B-24J, fly in every year for their annual maintenance appointment.
On a sunny Saturday this past November, the public got its yearly opportunity for an up-close view of the bombers and also the Collings TP-51C Mustang at American Aero Services, based at New Smyrna Beach Municipal Airport (EVB).
