Breckenridge Airshow 2nd Act of the Resurrection

By Nick Viggiano 

Three Cats and a CorsairMemorial Day Weekend 2018 marked the 2nd Breckenridge Air Show since it’s resurrection in 2017. The show put on by the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce and Ezell Aviation was again a tremendous success, as it should be with two headline acts!

As most warbird fans know, the Breckinridge Air Show started in the late 1970’s as a little fly-in, party for air show performers. The founder and driving force of this fly-in, that turned into the best WWII warbird airshow was Howard Pardue, along with his employee “Fast” Eddie Holms.  

Howard, a native son of Breckenridge and former Marine Corps aviator would fly his warbirds to other airshows with the agreement that they would attend his. And so that is how the west Texas town of Breckinridge came to host one of the best airshows in the country.

Get Your Eye Gear On with Scheyden AirVenture 2018 

By Annamarie Buonocore  

AirVenture season has arrived, and there are many goodies and gadgets to be had. Perhaps one of the most exciting items a pilot can treat him or herself to is a pair of Scheyden sunglasses. With many pairs to choose from, they are always the most comfortable and are designed with aviators in mind. Throughout the years, In Flight USA has enjoyed following Scheyden and its products, and once again, we were able to get a few words from Jeff Herold, president of the company. Do not forget your sunglasses before flying to AirVenture, but just in case you do forget, you can buy some of these amazing glasses on site. 

IF: What are your plans for this year’s AirVenture? Any new products? 

JH: We have now become a sponsor of performer, Rob Holland, one of the best competition aerobatic pilots in the world, so we are doing a giveaway of whatever Rob’s favorite Scheyden sunglasses are. He has several pairs, so it will be his determination of which ones become the prize. We see him wearing the Mustangs the most. We’ll have him performing. Airshow announcer, Rob Reider, of course will be there supporting our eyewear and mentioning the pilots there who are wearing the glasses. Another performer we are sponsoring is Scott (Scooter) Yoak, who will be in his Quicksilver P-51 Mustang. We’ll do sunglass giveaways with all of our performers, but Rob Holland and Scooter Yoak are the main guys right now.
