Who Are We?
We will be celebrating our eighth National Radial Engine Exhibition on September 11, 2010. With growth of over twenty-five percent per year the plan we started with has certainly caught on. We are thrilled with the success of our volunteers that has been ours to share. The National Radial Engine Exhibition began as a static display of radial engine aircraft from the 1920's to the 1950's together with a collectable car show. The show’s original goals were: First to showcase the Colorado Plains Regional Airport and its capability to the aviation community nationwide. Second was to provide a venue to a group of special aircraft owners that deserve recognition and support. Third was to introduce Akron, Colorado to many new visitors. And fourth provide all attendees a very special event that was both entertaining and educational.
We’ve added a world class air show, a World War II re-enactment with live pyrotechnics, a great list of vendors, radio controlled planes, model rockets, the Air Force’s ACC demonstration teams, Kids Space from Wings over the Rockies museum, a motorcycle show, a Five K run to start the day and much, much more. We are especially proud of the partnership we are building with Veterans and our Vet’s charity CO-NE-KA that helps veterans connect with their care providers.
Bring your family and friends and spend the day at a premier event done the old fashioned way with hands on experiences and up close and personal entertainment with a large dose of history and memories. Check our News tab for announcements about this year’s show. We feel the 2010 is already shaping up to be our best. We invite you to visit the rest of our web site for a sample of what “What we are”.
