Just about anything that flies will be on exhibit, from WWI, WWII, modern stealth, trainers and aerobatic aircraft. Drones and gliders will also be flown and displayed.

A special exhibition of advanced aerobatics will be flown by Flex Innovations pilot, 13-year-old Lane Walker, from East Carter Middle School in Grayson, Kentucky. Lane has been flying since he was 10 years old and was recently a featured demo pilot at a large remote control fly-in in South Carolina.

Club member Josh Evans will fly his parasail aircraft to the field and put it on display for children to look at and take pictures in.

Organizers invite the public to bring the folding chairs and the family for a day of fun.
