2021 TBM Reunion in Peru, IL
May 14, 2021 - May 15, 2021
WE’RE BACK FOR 2021:
The TBM Avenger Reunion and Salute to Veterans airshow is back for 2021 at the Illinois Valley Regional Airport (KVYS) in Peru, Illinois!
Thanks to the City of Peru and our other generous sponsors, we will hold our annual airshow Friday night, May 14 and Saturday, May 15.
-Friday Night activities are 6:00 to 10:00 PM
-Saturday’s event time is 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Warbirds will be arriving all week and departing on Sunday.
Friday night will feature a car show, beer garden, food, music, and the spectacular night airshow by the AeroShell Aerobatic Team.
Saturday’s main event will feature many Warbirds including a B-25, F6F Hellcat, P-51 Mustang, Corsair, a gaggle of T6’s, jets, a contingent of trainers from PT’s to AT-6’s, and, of course, as many TBM Avengers as can come. Right now we have 14 Avengers committed.
As usual there will likely be some additional surprises show up as well. The aircraft list is constantly evolving.
In addition to our airshow, we are proud to again feature our Salute to Veterans parade. We are planning a bigger and better parade this year and encourage all veterans to participate so that all can show their appreciation for your service to our country. We’ll update this post with details as we formalize our plans in the coming weeks so stay tuned.
One of the most important elements for a successful airshow are the volunteers. We encourage all who can to volunteer and help us continue to make this one of the best airshows ever. We’ll be holding periodic volunteer meetings in the coming months to dial in the details. As soon as we establish the schedule we’ll post dates and times.
Please contact our volunteer coordinator, Tracy Baer, to volunteer. His contact info is below.
We look forward to seeing you at the TBM Avenger Reunion and Salute to Veterans on May 14 and 15.
