What is “Warbirds and Classics Over the Midwest?”

Warbirds and Classics over the Midwest is an annual, three-day event running Thursday to Saturday with open flying on Sunday (Aug 15th - 18th in 2019).   The event is limited to giant scale warbirds, giant scale models of aircraft produced pre-1960, as well as any size TURBINE jet with military markings.  We believe the key to a successful annual event is to focus on the pilots and make it fun for them.  They and their aircraft are what make the event possible.

What are the facilities like?
