Static Display for Lake Havasu AirFest

Recommended Posts

HuggyU2    909

They are looking for military statics for this AirFest.  Small ramp area, so can't bring in the big aircraft.  T-6, any fighter, or some of that AFSOC stuff that is different and cool.  

One-day show, 4 Nov, sponsored by Hangar 24 Craft Beer.  Concert on ramp after the show.  

Non-towered airport, 8001x100 runway, FBO has contract fuel.  Arrive Friday, or come in Saturday morning.  Show doesn't start until ~1300.  

Ping me for details if you think you might want to show up.

I went to the Hangar 24 Grand Opening in Havasu in Feb, and you're right:  the same great beer.

Although it's a bit further of a drive for you, Clayton.

saw a bottle of Pugachev's Cobra for sale at a liquor store in CA last week...almost pulled the trigger, but the $35 price tag scared me away

Hey A-10 guys:  Havasu is only a short hop from D-M.

They had a T-6 lined up, but that just fell through.  A good opportunity for one of you T-6 instructors to jump in.

I've taken an ACC T-38 to a non-towered airport in the past.  I cannot recall where the "you must have a tower" rule is... but in my case, Squadron and Group leadership allowed it.  

What's the waiver authority in AETC for a T-6 to do this?

It's the OG for a one-off landing at an uncontrolled field from what I remember.

Would love to have a T-1 there, too.  

As I mentioned, you can arrive Friday... or Saturday morning before 1100.

Huggy, can you PM me some contact info?  There's a T-6 FAIP in our sister squadron who I know would be interested in and is planning on applying for U-2's in the near future, so I'm sure he'll jump at this opportunity.

Worth it!

Although you can usually get it for 20-ish at BevMo or Total Wine.

They usually release around the holidays, that's when all the breweries here release their top-shelf imperial barrel-aged stuff.

$35 was what I saw Ballast Point charging for theirs, but they charge $15 for a 6-pack...

Reply sent.

There will be at least 6 current or former U-2 pilots at the show.  Trying to get a few more to come down.

Yeah, $35 is a little steep (even for me) for an unknown beer.
