I'm from Kirksville, MO, and saw these guys perform YEARS ago at the Golden Spike! I have both albums and they really ROCK!! I know that they are no longer together because I saw Jon Dixon in The Bootrockets, a country band. (Has he gone crazy?!) Anyway, please send me any info you can on the band and its (former) members -- like what they are doing now and where can I see them? You can write me at amy_lynne_69@yahoo.com. Thanks!!

Mitch, How about a comeback performance in Central WI? We miss you all!!! Saw you on the news the other night. greuels@stjosephs-marshfield.org

Greetings! Doug Dixon is now playing with the band Standing Hampton, a high energy rock group from Des Moines Iowa. Check it out at www.standinghampton.com

Not sure why the ratings for this cd here are so low. This is one of the great ones of all time! Each track is pure keyboard-layden 80's AOR bliss! Worth every penny!

Looking for an MP3 or CD version of Alien Probe from 1983 Let's Take Off album. Anyone help? ccchiro@fuse.net

From: David Mark Date: March 20, 2003 at 23:32
Seen Airkraft back in '83' at a kick ass saloon in Eau Claire Wis, they were just kicking off their Lets Take Off album.Also seen them in Marshfield at the Yellow River speedway. Lost all my albums and cassettes to my girlfriend at the time, if anyone wants to part with some, contact me at: seamlesspro@hotmail.com - thanks

From: Mark Jacoby Date: March 22, 2003 at 17:37
Airkraft needs to make a comeback! Re-cut make believe!!!!

From: Timmy Ramone Date: April 13, 2003 at 11:01
Saw these guys in Wisconsin Rapids Wi at a bar called Lance's a few times in the early 90's. I've got the 1983 lp Let's take off and the In the red cd. They rule. Ant word on them doing anything again?

From: David Mark Date: April 15, 2003 at 1:14

Hi Mitch, Dave,Dave S, Pete, Gyro and Jon. First saw you guys open for Head East with 5th Avenue at the old Lincoln High School now East Junior. Was that 1980? Wow! Saw you many times after that with our ontourage that included Brian(Elvis) and Craig and usually our girlfriends.Sometimes we'd go backstage and talk with you. We really enjoyed it when you played Athens, Minneapolis, Lances and Skateway (B.J. Rockers,)MidState in Rapids. Speaking for manyfans we were bummed when you broke up. In th

From: Date: May 28, 2003 at 9:21
end was it really petty bickering over money and decision making? What a waste of God given talents and music Thousands of fans can't be wrong even though they were left hangin. Why not reunite??? We know you guys still got the music in you. Yea we know you all have other interests and jobs now...well how bout a "Best of" CD and tour then just to say thanks to all the loyal fans. We are waiting... I'm looking for any C.D's. 33's 45'rpm's especially later version of Alien Probe as I wore mine out

From: Brian Date: July 31, 2003 at 20:00
I was a big fan went to all your shows at the pines. You were the best around.I think you should relese Never to Late. I think it might go to the top.I am tired of listening to the shit that the radios play every day and make us think it is good music. I have had all you tapes over the years and a friend burned them on a cd for me so you guys can still rock on in my little world. Cartman even sings some of you tunes if we can get him to sing. I think you should try to put on a show at rockfest i

From: oliver Date: September 19, 2003 at 11:20
I think this is a poor record. Very average pop/rock. Nothing rocks. Listen to that poor cover of Midnite confessions. Sold my copy on ebay. You can´t compare this one with the great second release.

From: rocketron Date: November 24, 2003 at 13:27
Overrated and overpriced.This is fairly average AOR.

From: Shoemaker Date: November 24, 2003 at 15:10
Rocketron you are right!

From: robert Date: December 12, 2003 at 22:50
6º disco d la lista d 1989' ¡este no lo tengo!! pero por referencias parece bueno ¿alguien lo recomienda?

From: Cathy Davis Date: May 6, 2004 at 23:28
If the boys from the band look at this Hi! from your light tech. Long time no see I've wondered what you are up to. If Doug was in a country band I'll laugh my ass off. Love to hear from any of you, you are still my favorite band and thanks I learned alot from you. My husband and I own a sound and lighting company now. soundandlights2004@yahoo.com

From: Geoff Date: May 24, 2004 at 22:11
I do like this band, but this CD is not good, IMO. Very soft, barely rock at all. The second CD is great, but I think this is way too soft to even be called rock. There is one nice mid-tempo tune on it I do like, but I can't even recall because I just avoid the album. One great song, though.

From: Harrison V.M Date: August 20, 2004 at 15:54
Hey I just want to say that AirKraft rocks! I take guitar lessons from Jon Douglas Dixon, and our band has recorded with him, and I just want to say that he is really f*ckin amazing! And funny as hell! Richard Gazinya right Doug? lol

From: AOR freaky Date: August 21, 2004 at 6:11
Not hardrock, but bloody great AOR here ! Airkraft, again a band that is totally underrated. A lot better than that HS crap, but not many people seem to know this fine act ! They don't know what they miss ! Keep listening to HS, people, and you'll miss REAL music like this !

From: bones Date: December 18, 2004 at 12:17

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: January 30, 2005 at 7:23
Muy inferior anda este disco en cuanto a calidad en comparación al "In The Red",ahora bien,bastante mejor q sus dos anteriores discos ("Let's Take Off" y "Proximity")si q lo es,cosa no demasiado dificil ya q ambos son bastante mediocres,en este lo q tenemos es un AOR mas propio de mediados de los 80 q de finales,(estilo Taxxi,Illusion,The Innocent,Refugee)vamos quiero decir q una atmósfera pomposa revolotea en la gran mayoria de temas de los cuales tan solo hay 2 o 3 aprovechables.REGULAR.

From: rocky Date: February 10, 2005 at 8:41
a pretty good album, but not as good as the "in the red" album.

From: Geoff Date: March 21, 2005 at 5:18
I said above that I didn't really dig this album, except for one song and that opinion remains strong. It is just so lite, even more so that Harlan Cage's debut, or what I suspect Haywire might have sounded like. Either way, it is not at all my kind of music, but I openly admit that 'Footsteps' is a true gem of a track. What a beautiful song and I dare say it's worth checking this out for that song alone... though I'd skip the rest

From: Kip Date: September 14, 2005 at 3:59
Cmon Geoff, this album is lite AOR sure, but I think it's all good. The first two tracks are definately the highlights. I happen to like the first one more. Actually the only songs I don't really like are tracks 4 and 9. I like the rest of them though. Very good, solid above average album. 7.5/10

From: Kip Date: September 14, 2005 at 4:05
Forgot to mention one thing - If you like this band check out Angel Edge. Carbon copies of each other with similer quality albums IMO.

Due to some good timing, I have sealed blister packs of Airkraft - S/T and Airkraft - In the Red available at very nice prices. See here for details. Thanks! -Dan

From: z4roxx Date: November 7, 2006 at 13:05
Production is not their best thing but I like these guys.Good keys injection,great vox and good melodick arrangments.This one and also”In the red”are 2 good releases.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 18, 2012 at 18:02
A step forward on this one...better than the first album which is honestly a bad one...some goodies in here are "Footsteps" & "One Of A Kind" both AOR,"Rock City" ,"Trapped In A Barrier" & "Giving Up On Love"(catchy)...65/100

From: playhogan Date: March 21, 2013 at 19:03
Just my opinion but I think this release is terrible. Thief In the Night is an okay tune but the rest is bad.
