2007 Morris Illinois, Airshow Warbirds
September 1-2, 2007 (Photos taken on Sunday, 9-2)
This is show is one of those rare gems of an airshow you find in the rough that is now in its 11th year.  I found out about this by accident in 2006 as it is not on any air show website listing and does not have one of its own website to promote it.  There is extremely limited information on the Dacy Air Show website, which is the producer of the show.  It also fits into the what I would call the modernized version of the old country airshow for which the warbird line-up is outstanding and is superior to what many of the large shows have.  Included in the show aerobatic line up was Mike Keenum in the Sea Fury, The Yak-52TW Aerostar Aerobatic Team, Clyde Zellers in his SNJ, and Susan Dacy and Dave Dacy each in modified and up-engined Stearmans.  These acts combined with the warbird fly-bys made this into a 80% warbird flying show.
