This Vanguard Squadron from South Dakota will give area airplane fans a Blue Angel/Thunderbird type of performance as part of the 42nd annual Flight Breakfast and Airshow on Saturday, June 15 at Clarinda Municipal Airport/Schenck Field.

“This team is in high demand across the nation and Clarinda gets them all to ourselves,” said show organizer Steve Mowery.

They are sponsored by Poet Ethanol from Corning with Poet being one of our show’s biggest sponsors.

“This 20 minute aerial ballet will be spellbinding leaving the audience clapping for more,” he said.

Activities start at 7 a.m. with a pancake breakfast put on by Clarinda’s EAA (Experimental Aviation Association) Flying Club in the large red hangar near the administration building. Serving ends at 10 a.m.

Proceeds benefit aviation in Clarinda.

At 8:30 a.m. there will be Cowboy Church in a hanger directly across from breakfast where local talent will provide worship music followed by a message. Those who want to attend are asked to bring lawn chairs as seating is limited.

The free airshow starts at 10 a.m.

“We will have a parachute team, the best World War II airplane of the war, the P-51 Mustang, a thrilling high energy aerobatic act doing impossible maneuvers, a first class air comedy act the likes of which Clarinda has never seen with the showstopper being the afore mentioned Vanguard Squadron,” Mowery said.

A raffle for a Ruger 10-22 rifle will be held during the show. Tickets will be available at the show.
