30 Years in the Air Show Business!

2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the Lima Lima Flight Team. This is quite a feat in our business. There is only one other team and just a hand full of individual performers who have survived for thirty years. We will be having a reunion this month at the Pheasant Run Resort in St. Charles, IL from the 17th to the 19th. Click here for detailsĀ
The painting was done by our resident artist and pilot Lou Drendel. It shows the thirty pilots and announcers that we have had since our inception in 1987.Lima Lima 30th Reunion color poster with names

Lima Lima and the B-2 Spirit Bomber

This shot of the B-2 and two of our T-34’s was taken at Whiteman AFB in Missouri several years ago. I don’t think there will ever be another shot of a civilian aircraft with the B-2. The commanding officer asked me “is there anything else that I can do for you guys?” and I called him on it. The photo shoot started at 0500 in the dark with the crew pulling the B-2 out of its air conditioned hanger and then carefully watching us pull our aircraft under the B-2’s wing. The t-34’s look like model airplanes.Mentors and B2
