The stunt team of Melissa and Rex Pemberton will perform during the opening ceremonies. Rex will free-fall through the sky in his wing-suit, while his wife Melissa barrel rolls her Edge 540 aircraft around him.
Rich Perkins will perform precision aerobatics in his L39C Albatros jet. The Albatros is a jet trainer from Czechoslovakia that features dual seats and a single jet engine with 4,000 pounds of thrust.
Eddie Andreini will fly his modified Stearman through a series of stunts that include torque rolls, double snap rolls, square loops, and an inverted ribbon pick-up.
The Truckee Airfair is free and the parking is free. There will be live music, food court, beer gardens, and a bounce house for the kids. The date is July 6, 2013 from 10am to 4pm at the Tahoe Truckee Airport.
I had a great time at last year's Airfair and this year it promises to be even better. The free parking was well managed and the show was great.
