Representative Sam Graves (R-MO) recently announced the 14th Annual WingNuts Flying Circus Air Show and Fly In to be held on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at the Gould Peterson Memorial Airport (K57) in Tarkio, Missouri. The event brings together general aviation pilots, aviation industry leaders, government officials and Members of Congress to share their mutual passion for flying. The WingNuts will host an aviation town hall meeting to discuss the issues facing general aviation today.
Food and drinks will be available throughout the day. For those flying in the day before, Friday the 7th, there will be a dusk aerial demonstration by the Aeroshell Aerobatic Team, Matt Younkin and Gary Rower followed by a celebration that evening with plenty of food, beverage and music. There will also be a very spirited celebration after the show on Saturday night.
Please contact the airport about runway lengths and airport questions. There is a high quality 4000 x 100 feet grass strip available next to the concrete runway if desired. You can contact the airshow coordinator/airport manager, Brookes Hurst, at 816 244 6927 with any questions. Please visit the website www.wingnutsflyingcircus.com for show updates.
