Celebration at local airport expected to be ‘high flying’

From press reports

The skies over Winston County will be thundering Saturday morning starting about 8:30 am, but it won’t be weather related.

The arrival of warbirds which begins Friday afternoon with the Devil Dog B25 will reach a crescendo as the P51’s, Corsair and other aircraft arrive for the Terminal Building dedication ceremony at the Winston County/Louisville airport.

Everyone is invited to the event. Gates will open at 9 a.m., with the ceremony set for 10 a.m. and the warbirds will be there for viewing all day long.

Lunch and drinks will be available.

Parking will be outside the front gate in designated areas and along the west side of Airport Road and Cannon Drive. Overflow parking will be at the Coliseum parking lot. Shuttles will be provided to get persons to the front gate of the airport. NO AUTOMOBILE traffic allowed on the ramp area!

Also, those interested in taking a flight of historic memories can book a ride on the famous Devil Dog B25 but call today to book it. Contact Ben Kirk, Pam Kirk, or Mike Forster to reserve a spot. Payment can be made on the day of the event.

“The weather forecast is good, the warbirds are on the way; come out and spend the day with us,” said organizers.
