First Aircraft Arrives for Formation Camp


As air show season approaches, Vintage Wings is getting ready to hold their second annual Formation Camp.

The goal of the camp is to develop Standard Operating Procedures ( SOPs) for civilians who fly formation as part of air shows.

Vintage Wings is expecting 20-30 aircraft to be in attendance, with over 40 people at the briefings.

Today the first aircraft arrived – a Boeing Stearman, belonging to one Joe Cosmano, Vintage Wings volunteer and pilot extraordinaire. Packed to the gunnels with various pilot paraphenalia, Joe and his Stearman came from the great State of  New York, taking advantage of the cloudless blue skies and light winds to make the trip in three short hops.

Other aircraft arriving throughout the week include Trojan T28s, Pitts, Sukoi, Yak 52, and an L-39, in addition to the regular roster of Vintage Wings trainers and fighters.
