Jon Melby first learned to fly at age 8, when he created a pile of leaves in his
Duluth, Minnesota lawn, climbed onto the roof of his 2 story home, and jumped like a
bird into the leaves! He has been hooked on flying ever since.
At the age of 12, he had the opportunity to meet the legendary airshow pilot Bob Hoover
at a local airshow. Bob Hoover's sincerity and great personality gave Jon the inspiration
to pursue his dream of flying. When he was financially able, Jon made it a goal to
achieve his solo in a glider before his 16th birthday. In only 8 flights, he achieved his

A Salute to the Golden Age of Aviation . . .
Step back in time as Susan Dacy puts her 450 horsepower, Super Stearman, 'Big Red' through its paces with a dazzling display of barrel rolls, slow, slow rolls, Cuban eights, hammerhead turns, loops and much more, in a style reminiscent of the barnstorming era of flying.
Susan is one of only a few females performing airshows in a biplane, and is the only woman flying exhibition in the Super Stearman. Attending airshows as a child, Susan remembers being in awe of the big, loud, smoky biplanes. As a teenager, yearning to fly, Susan felt the only way to fly a Stearman was to have one of her own. At the family airport, located in Harvard, Illinois, Susan worked in the office, fueled planes, and eventually acquired a rebuildable Stearman Project. While in high school, every spare hour was spent restoring the aircraft, which she still owns and operates today.
