SHOWCASE CHANGE

A less-formal format will be used Saturday for our final airplane showcase of the season.  Previous showcases have featured pilots’ giving a talk about their airplanes then a short flight demonstration. Then spectators were allowed to get close to the airplanes and talk to the pilots.

The first two elements will be omitted for Saturday’s showcase, said Don Rasmussen, event coordinator. Airplanes will be on static display only, he said. The crowd line will be positioned so spectators can get close to the planes and talk to the pilots throughout the presentation.

Specific airplanes and pilots have not yet been determined, but there will be two or three, he said. The program will begin at 10 a.m. and last about an hour. No admission will be charged, but we appreciate donations.

Jim Honeyford to make this work.

The “world famous yard sale” needs items to sell.
