You won’t want to miss the 2016 LMO Airport Expo on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at Vance Brand Airport, Longmont, CO. 


What to see:

The 2016 LMO Expo is the airport’s biennial airshow and fly-in. The Expo will feature aircraft from around the area, top level aerobatic performers, military and antique aircraft, airplane rides, vendors, food, and much, much more! Grab a front row seat and see everything from vintage biplanes to general aviation aircraft, jets, helicopters, and more – all up close and personal, without the crowds you’ll find at the bigger airshows.

What to do:

Meet the people who fly these machines, watch precision aerobatics and displays during our airshow, go on an airplane ride, and be sure to visit the dozens of vendors and other participating groups.
