Indianapolis Airshow 2009
June 6-7, 2009   
Indianapolis is my home show and the one for which I am the Warbird Chairman.  Due to my duties throughout the weekend I was only able to get a few photos during the weekend.  Missing are the B-25 and C-47 that attended this year. 


Show opening by IN Air National Guard F-16s.


Dave Folk from Kalamazoo, MI performing an aerobatic maneuver in his F4U Corsair.


Mike Gillian from Downers Grove, IL performing in his FM-2.


One time pass on Sunday only of F4U, P-51, P-47 and FM-2.


Glenn Foy of Indianapolis taxies out in his Yak-52TW.


Mike Gillian pulling up at the bottom of an aerobatic maneuver.  Both he and Dave Folk in the Corsair flew their routines together in trail.  Mike had to work a little harder than Dave to keep up in his faster Corsair.  This was a first for the Indy Air Show in flying dissimilar warbirds together in a aerobatic routine.
