Schenck Field Airport (KICL), Clarinda, Iowa: Flight Breakfast Entertainment on Sunday

(Clarinda) -- Not all the activities at Sunday's Clarinda Flight Breakfast are taking place in the air.

Pilot Steve Mowery with Schenck Airfield in Clarinda was on the Dean and Don show yesterday. He spoke of the things you can see during the air show on Sunday.

"During the air show, we're going to rather unique items this year. The American Legion Riders, a motorcycle group, want to participate. They are going to start out the show all decked out with American Flags and patriotic 'to do'. Followed by a parachute team from Lincoln, the Lincoln Sport Parachute Club and they are going to be dropping out of the sky at 10-12,000 feet. The last guy out will have a huge American Flag." states Mowery.

You can see a demonstration of radio controlled airplanes, Mowery says, "We are going to have a real special treat. Two radio controlled demo pilots will be flying what they call Giant Scale Radio Controlled Aircraft. One of them has a 13 foot wingspan, which is just a monster and people won't believe it when they see it."

Stuff you have to see to believe will be at the airshow. "We have a local pilot, Harry Barr, and Harry is going to be doing several things. He's going to land a Piper Cub on a car. Which you've got to see to believe. Then he and a fellow by the name of Ed Nordland are going to race a Ford Mustang with a high performance airplane. They are going to race down the runway at break neck speed and see who win's on that!" Mowery adds.

Even aerobatic pilots will be there. Mowery stated, "Three world class aerobatic pilots, they will be having a low show this year." There will also be a flight demo of a WW2 fighter P-51 Mustang.

The air show begins at 10:30 on Sunday after the breakfast.
