Flying enthusiasts gather for breakfast at Peru airport


NewsTribune photos/Craig SterrettGerman international businessman Peter Limberger of Ottawa smiles while visiting with onlookers after getting out of the cockpit of his Yak aerobatic plane. Limberger, who said he’s known locally as “the husband of Inge Carus” also owns a Romanian-built two-seat Yak (in background) that was used for military training and now for aerobatic training. He said he acquired the two-seater in part to encourage more people to try to fly at the Peru airport. Limberger has been flying more than 30 years. He said handling the Yak 55 is like handling a Formula One race car; it’s not the same, but the principal is: “It’s a world class unlimited aerobatic airplane.”

The annual fly-in, drive-in breakfast usually is a big draw, and the line was growing even though clouds were rolling in and rain was on its way Sunday morning at Illinois Valley Regional Airport.

Chuck Studer of the airport and club said the breakfast helps raise funds to keep costs reasonable for flying out of the airport. In addition to breakfast, visitors to the annual breakfast could take helicopter rides or see a sea plane, the U.S. Navy Avenger that’s based at the airport or a Yak high-performance aerobatic competition plane and a two-seat Yak, both owned by German international businessman Peter Limberger of Ottawa.
