Fairview Fly-in, Air Show will take place on Saturday

The oldest free fly-in and air show in the United States will be held again this year Saturday at Davey and Betsy Martens Airport in Fairview.

This is the 60th year for the Fairview Fly-In and Air Show, and Teresa Regier of Regier Flying Service said they hope to have between 100 and 200 planes this year.

“It looks like it’s going to be a nice day, and we hope we’ll get between 100 and 200 planes,” she said.

Last year more than 100 planes attended the event.

Performers this year include Matt Younkin, flying a Twin Beech 18.

The performance is almost a mirror image of the one his father Bobby pioneered and flew for more than 15 years.

It begins with a roll-on takeoff, followed by a series of Cuban eights, point-rolls and even a loop.

The conclusion is a pass dubbed the “Elephant Waltz,” in which Younkin rocks the plane’s wings more than 90 degrees with the landing gear and flaps extended

Other performers are: Randy Harris, in a Skybolt 300; Paul Jennings, 2009 U.S. Aerobatic Glider champion flying a Swift S1; Julia Wood, in a Pitts S2B; Tony Wood, flying a Sukhoi SU-26; and Bob Pezold in a L-39 jet.

Chuck Powell will be on hand with a group of parachute jumpers. There also will be a demonstration of remote-control airplanes, Regier said.

Breakfast of pancakes and sausage is available for $4. Those who fly in may eat breakfast free. Breakfast is available 7-10 a.m.

A ceremony honoring veterans will be 10:45 a.m., then lunch of hamburgers and french fries will be served 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The air show begins at 12:30 p.m.
