CAJT Wants to Help Middletown, OH Bring Back Wings Of Freedom In 2009!!!!!!!!

October 19, 2008
Letter From Rich Bevis      
Dear Air Show Enthusiasts,To all of you who attended the Wings of Freedom air show, we thank you for coming and hope you enjoyed the show. It was the culmination of months of planning and many hours invested by dozens of volunteers. Everyone agrees that it was a big success and a great contribution to the Southwest Ohio region.Unfortunately, actual paid attendance was significantly less than we needed it to be. Overall attendance was estimated at 13,000, but included many volunteers and kids under 12 whom were admitted free. Obviously the storm played a huge part in the low turnout, as most of the area had no electric or cable for most of the week preceding the show. No power/cable meant people had a) no TV, cable, Internet or radio on which to hear our commercials and b) additional clean up to do once their power went back on!So if you enjoyed the air show – or had to miss it because of the storm – and you would like us to bring it back next year, please make a contribution today to the Middletown Aviation Foundation by clicking the Donate button on the right. We are a 501c3 organization and your contribution is tax deductible. If you have any questions or want more information about this organization click the About Us tab or contact us at info@ middletownaviation.com.Thanks again for helping to make the “Wings of Freedom” air show one of Southwest Ohio’s premiere events of the season.Sincerely,

–Rich Bevis, Co-Chairman, Wings of Freedom Air Show–

Middletown, Ohio Airshow 2008

October 19, 2008

The Commemorative Airborne Jump Team was honored to attend the 2008 Middletown, Ohio Wings Of Freedom Airshow.  We had two very successful jumps.  The first jump was dedicated to the 506thPIR/326thAEB for their participation during Operation Overlord, Normandy France June 1944.  The second jump was dedicated to the 505thPIR/307thAEB for their participation during Operation Market Garden, Holland September 1944.

We were amongst two great heroes, Joe Drago (101st ABN 326th AEB) and Bill Wilch (29th ID 115th Inf).  Many thanks go out to the Black Sparrow crew, airport staff, volunteers, and especially our great friends Greg Morehead and Bob Bos.

517th Reunion Jump 2007

August 24, 2008

The 517th PRCT Association held their National Reunion in Washington, DC June 2007.  It was an honor to provide them with a live parachute jump from a vintage C47 aircraft in Manassas, VA.  A lot of hard work went into this jump and a big thanks goes out to all those individuals and organizations that made a dream become a reality.

517th Airborne Reunion 2008

August 12, 2008

CAJT traveled to the St. Louis area to jump in honor of the 517th PRCT at their 2008 National Reunion.  Due to the major flooding in the area, the primary DZ went under water and scrubbed the planned operation at St Charles County Smartt Airport.  The mission was quickly rescheduled to take place at St Charles Municipal Airport with help from many entities.  The jump was a total success and the main goal of the team was met by providing the veterans and their families with a live airborne jump from the Great Lakes CAF C47, Black Sparrow.
