Bartlesville airport to host regional fly-in

September 12, 2023

Bartlesville Municipal Airport is the place to be for two full days of exciting aviation activities as the airport hosts the 2023 Back to Bartlesville Regional Fly-In.

The event is set for Sept. 22-23 at the Bartlesville Municipal Airport, located at 2005 Wiley Post Road, just west of Bartlesville off of Sunset Boulevard.

“In 1987, Charles Harris established the National Biplane Association in Bartlesville and organized the Biplane Expo, which lasted 23 years ending in 2009,” said Airport Director Mike Richardson. “This will be the first year the airport will host a large fly-in since the Tulsa Regional Grand Finale Fly-In of 2014, so we are very excited and hope everyone will turn out to enjoy this exciting event.”

Highlights for the event include:

  • Sixth annual All Bellanca Aircraft Fly-In will be displaying numerous models of Bellanca aircraft.
  • The Tulsa War Birds will be displaying the historic AT-6 Texan WWII trainer and demonstrating exciting formation flyovers.
  • Van’s RV homebuilt aircraft will be on display and performing formation flyover demonstrations.
  • The mighty Douglas C-47 WWII Troop Transport Carrier, Wild Kat, will be on display and open for daily tours
  • The WWII Airborne Demonstration Team will conduct a static-line Parachuting operation from the C-47 on the airfield to honor our veterans.
  • The Women’s Airforce Service Pilots of WWII (WASP) will have an AT-6 and a Stearman on display and selling rides.
