We are continuing our 30th Anniversary Retrospective by talking with Chris Jones, the Principal of JD Parker Elementary. Last year, over 300 of their students came to the Audi Stuart Air Show on Friday afternoon. They got to meet the pilots, tour static aircraft, and watch the performers’ practice runs before we opened the 2018 show!
We are celebrating 30 years of the Stuart Air Show by talking with the people who know it the best. Today we sit down with Renée Allen, our volunteer in charge of Pilot Hospitality. Renée shares with us that she began going to the air show with her father when she was a young girl.
While we begin to explore the Stuart Air Show’s history over the past three decades to celebrate our 30th Anniversary, we want to start by learning more about aviation in our community. We decided to share a little bit about our town’s history with the US Army Grumman OV-1 Mohawk.
