Organizers of the National Radial Engine Exhibition are inviting biplane fans to its Sept. 11 show at Colorado Plains Regional Airport (AKO) in Akron, Colo.
The National Radial Engine Exhibition was first held in 2003 and has showcased radial-engine powered aircraft with centerpiece exhibits such as the B-17 “Sentimental Journey” and “The Detroit,” a restored DC-3. Beginning in 2006 Gene Soucy headlined the first airshow program, which has grown every year. The show’s signature event each year is a World War II re-enactment with live pyrotechnics and aerial support, organizers note, adding the event also hosts a collector car show, local vendors, veteran exhibits, kid’s crafts and more.
