We at AIRSHOWVID.COM would like to thank the staff of the Copperstate Fly-In for all their support during our planning phase and stay at Casa Grande, Arizona.  The Copperstate volunteers are a class act each and every one of them, the best organization we have had the pleasure to deal with so far.  Also we would like to thank Steve Kates “Dr. Sky” for joining us and hosting our Copperstate documentary.

    Guys, I can’t express just how much I am looking forward to this show. In the winter of 2001-2002, I stayed at the campground beside the Casa Grande airpark. I knew nothing of it when I made my booking. The joy of finding a fly-in next door was supreme. This is bringing back some very fond memories. Thank you so much.

    I enjoyed the presentations of the restored planes like the Vultee and the Beech Twin. It reminded me of the “oldies” car shows where the owners had the original car manuals and optional accessories. I learned a lot about the Apache helicopter. The sergeant gave a great presentation. I liked that gun mounted in front. And, I saw there was a gyrocopter at the show. I think they are cool. Had a neat canopy for the two passengers. Thank you AirShowVid for extending the knowledge of airplane history, and also great entertainment.
