Press Release - February 20, 2010

National Radial Engine Exhibition
For Immediate Release


National Radial Engine Exhibition invites biplane fans to the show where aviation history comes alive each fall!

The National Radial Engine Exhibition planning committee has extended an invitation to owners and followers of biplanes, powered by any engine type, to join the 2010 show Saturday September 11. As the last biplane fly-in in Bartlesville, OK, closed one chapter in the book of aviation events the NREE hopes to continue the story in Akron, CO by inviting the iconic biplanes to join its event at the Colorado Plains Regional Airport.

The National Radial Engine Exhibition was first held in 2003and has showcased radial-engine powered aircraft with centerpiece exhibits such as the extraordinary B-17 “Sentimental Journey” and the “The Detroit” a perfectly restored DC-3. Beginning in 2006 Gene Soucy headlined the first airshow program, which has grown every year. World class performers and modern military demonstrations help make our show the best in the region. The show’s signature event each year is a WWII re-enactment with live pyrotechnics and aerial support that is a crowd thriller. The event also hosts a collector car show, local vendors, veteran exhibits kid’s crafts and much, much more.
