Vance Brand Municipal Airport hosts its biennial FREE Longmont Airport Expo on Saturday, June 23 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. with displays and activities for all ages. Featured are top precision aerobatic performers, plus displays of military and antique aircraft (vintage biplanes, general aviation aircraft, jets, helicopters) and meet the people who fly these machines.
Other attractions are airplane rides, vendors, a kids’ fun area, food, booths from participating groups and more, all without the crowds of bigger airshows.
Come early for a pancake breakfast (7 to 9 a.m.). The Beer Garden is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The airshow from 10:15 a.m. to 1 p.m. is unquestionably the highlight. Watch performances and fly-bys from the Rocky Mountain Renegades, Mile-Hi Skydiving, North American T-6, Bücker Jungmann, SubSonex Mini-jet, Maverick Jet, DHC-1 Chipmunk, and more.
Live music featuring Girls On Top starts at 12:45 p.m. Bring sunscreen, water (note that several food vendors will have water available for purchase), chairs, etc. Due to the nature of aerial demonstrations, hearing protection (ear plugs) for younger children may be desired.
FREE parking is available. 229 Airport Rd., Longmont.
