Barnstormers Landing - What is a "Barnstormer?"

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with CreekStone Homes

Barnstormers were the most romanticized daredevils of their time.  They were 1920's stunt pilots and aerialists who could preform almost any feat imaginable with small planes.  Barnstormers came into their own following World War I when the federal government priced its surplus of "Jenny" (JN-4) biplanes so low that many of the postwar aviators were able to purchase their own.  Most barnstorming shows followed a typical pattern - a pilot or team of pilots, would fly over or "buzz" a small rural town and attract the attention of the residents.  They would then land at a local farm (hence barn stormer) and negotiate with the farmer for the temporary use of one of his fields as a runway.  The Barnstormers would then provide shows or offer rides to awestruck local crowds, most of whom had never seen an airplane up close.  Rumors are that "Barnstormer's Landing" was used as a landing strip in the 1920's for the Barnstormers.
