For those of you in the vicinity of northeastern Ohio, the United States Aviation Museum will present the 2012 air show, "Gathering Of Eagles XVI" at the Willoughby Lost Nation Municipal Airport in Willoughby, Ohio on July 14-15, 2012. We plan to bring back some old friends and will also have some new attractions as well.

The show's website is active and will be updated here:

Gathering Of Eagles XVI

My contributions from the 2011 show are here:

Hope to see some WIXers out there!

A Gathering Of Eagles update - the arrival day for the 2012 Gathering of Eagles XVI Air Show kicked off the weekend earlier today and we are glad to be here! On the ramp right now we have the B-25 Mitchell "Yankee Warrior" and C-47 Skytrain "Yankee Doodle Dandy" from the Yankee Air Museum along with the CJ-6, CM.170 Magister (Fouga Jet), C-123 "Thunderpig", T-28 Trojan, BT-13 Valiant, T-6 Texan, Pitts S-2B, and the SGM 2-37 Tuskegee Airmen National Historical Museum Motorgliders. Unfortunately, the B-25 Mitchell "Panchito" cancelled for the weekend. James Leavelle put on a great demo in his T-6 Texan and Robert "Tico" LaCerda beat-up the skies in the Pitts S-2B! The AD-5 Skyraider and L-5 "Carin' Belle" will arrive in the morning. Safe travels for all and we'll see everybody in the morning!

On the way home from my daughter’s wedding I "just" happened to stumble on this air show. Was there only for about 20 minutes but may have been the best 20 minutes there. I just love the Skyraider, and the B-25 isn’t to shabby either.
