Kokomo Wing and Wheels, IN 2009
July 4, 2009 
This great little show was a first time effort to support the Western High School Marching Band with a Pancake Breakfast all morning and then a free airshow in the afternoon.  Even though rain kept out at least four warbirds from attending the event still had five in attendance at the event.  Four of of the five that were present flew and did 7-8 passes each for an enthusiastic crowd that braved the rain . 
 


David Rothenanger from Indianapolis flew in his T-34 for the day.


Nathan Davis has both his P-51D and T-6 hangared at the Kokomo Airport, so he was able to provide local support for the event
.
