CHESTERFIELD, MO - The Spirit of St. Louis Air Show & STEM Expo continues Sunday at Spirit of St. Louis Airport in Chesterfield. This year’s show is a celebration of the Boeing  F/A-18  Hornet’s  40th Anniversary.

Sunday’s air show will feature the Canadian CF-18 Hornet demo team and the U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon demonstration. These two dynamic performances will be joined by Skip Stewart in his aerobatic biplane and by “Doc,” a Boeing B-29 Superfortress.

“2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the F/A-18 Hornet’s first flight,” said John Bales, president of the Spirit of St. Louis Air Show committee and Spirit of St. Louis Airport director. “2018 will kick off two consecutive years of airshows in St. Louis, celebrating this made-in-St. Louis aircraft, while also thrilling attendees with phenomenal performances from other historic and modern aircraft.”
