One of the best venues for inspiring interest in aviation today, as well as throughout the last 100+ years of flight, can be found in entertainment venues, such as movies and airshows. Those venues feature not only today's modern aerobatic, military and general aviation aircraft but also at times a number of antique, classic and replica aircraft. Many antique/classic aircraft from movies like The Great Waldo Pepper, The Rocketeer, Pancho Barnes, Pearl & Amelia have attended past AAA/APM fly-ins. Likewise many of the great aerobatic pilots like Price, Cole, Rhinehart, Neuman and many others have spent time here at Antique Airfield along with the airplanes they flew, classic aerobatic aircraft like 450 Stearmans, Taperwings, Monocoupes, Clipwing T-crafts, Buckers, Ryans, Parrakeets, Chipmunks, Great Lakes...

Ergo, the Board of Directors of both the Antique Airplane Association and the Air Power Museum are pleased to announce the 2014 AAA/APM Invitational Fly-in theme: "Stars of the Sky & Screen". We will showcase those aerobatic aircraft of old and the legendary pilots that flew them as well as those antiques and classics that have been stars in their own right whether in a Hollywood blockbuster, a made for TV movie or an independent film.

While we're excited over the prospect and hope of gathering together an outstanding collection of those antique/classic aircraft you've seen on the silver screen or performing in the sky, we will as in past years feature an outstanding marque of a particular antique/classic/warbird/neo-classic aircraft manufacturer. 2014 will have not one but two such fine marques of aircraft and both dovetail quite nicely with our "Stars of the Sky & Screen" theme, the Great Lakes and Interstate aircraft.

Of course AAA Founder/President RLT's Interstate S-1A Cadet "Rudolph" will be in attendance (Brent Taylor photo)

Interstate aircraft have not only been flown in airshows when first produced, one continues to a big hit with crowds to this day (and is being campaigned by a well known AAA member). Interstates were also the trainer of choice at the Arlen/Probert & Probert/Devine flying schools in the late 1930's & 1940's. That would be well-known actors Richard Arlen & Andy Devine. Plus one particular Interstate Cadet was the first airplane to be shot down in WWII during Pearl Harbor. We hope to have an outstanding group of Interstates attend the 2014 AAA/APM Invitational Fly-in and plan to include the military and modern variants, the L-6 and Artic Tern, as well.

The iconic Great Lakes 2T-1A has since the 1920's been both a legendary aerobatic airplane and a movie star, appearing in such productions as Tarnished Angels and The Rocketeer. We are hoping for an outstanding turn out of both early and modern production Great Lakes that will include original and those modified aircraft like the "Hunt Special". In fact we plan to assemble and have on display the APM's Great Lakes 2T-1A, N11339, which was the lone American entrant at the first modern World Aerobatic Contest (1960) in Czechoslovakia, flown by Frank Price. This particular 'Lakes has also been owned by legendary aerobatic pilots Rod Jocelyn & Mel Baron (who donated N11339 to the APM.)

The AAA/APM Invitational Fly-in is sponsored by the Antique Airplane Association and the Air Power Museum, both headquartered at Antique Airfield (IA27) near Blakesburg, IA. This By the Members, for the Members event is held on a privately owned airport that receives no federal, state or local money. While not an airshow nor public event, we encourage all with an interest in preserving and flying antique & classic aircraft to join the AAA and be able to attend this premiere antique/classic aircraft gathering.
