Riverside Airshow banner


The 21st Riverside Airshow took plae at the Riverside Municipal Airport on April 6, 2013. The day started overcast with a light breeze, but the skies cleared up mostly for the show. The afternoon skies were great for the performances after lunch. The Silver Wings Wingwalking team wowed the crowds again this year with Margi Stivers on the wing of the Stearman piloted by Hartley Folstad. John Collver flew a great performance in his T-6 War Dog. Dr. D's Old Time aerobatics also flew a great show with Frank Donnelly flying his 1946 Taylorcraft "Tumbling T-Cart". Jon Melby flew a solid performance in his Pitts, flying some great aerobatics. Tim Weber tumbled through the air in his Extra 300, sending oohs and aahs from the crowd. Bill Braack drove the Smoke and Thunder Jet car, racing both Tim Weber and John Collver. The Just In Time Skydivers jumped twice, once in the morning from a low altitude and once in the afternoon higher. Five T-6 Texans were on hand that flew some great formation work in the late morning. The Riverside Police Department flew their helicopter and performed a tactical demonstration with the helicopter, squad cars and K9 units. There were plenty of static displays of aircraft of all eras as well as a car show. Flying warbirds were the Grumman F4F Wildcat in British Navy Martlett colors, the Grumman F8F Bearcat and the P-51 Mustang "Lady Alice". It was a full day of family friendly entertainment with something for everyone.
