The air show in Chesterfield, presented by Boeing, will also feature the Warbird Heritage Foundation’s P51-D Mustang “Moonbeam McSwine,” A-4B Skyhawk, and FG-1D Corsair.
The North American Aviation P51 Mustang is a long-range single-seat American WWII fighter aircraft that helped ensure Allied air superiority in Europe.
Along with “Moonbeam McSwine” the Corsair and Skyhawk will take to the air. The Corsair is a carrier-capable fighter aircraft that saw service in WWII and the Korean War. The Skyhawk came along after the Korean War as a jet-powered replacement for the A-1 Skyraider. It was flown by both the US Navy and the US Marine Corps.
President of the Spirit of St. Louis Air Show Committee and St. Louis Airport Director John Bales says, “These are some inspirational aircraft. We want our guests to look to the skies and be inspired. And then, through the impact of our huge STEM Expo, we want to guide that inspiration into some amazing careers and opportunities for young people.
