Historic planes will be on display Saturday at Felts Field during the airport’s ninth annual Neighbor Day open house event.
The free, public event will run from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. Visitors will have the opportunity to see rare vintage aircraft up close, including a B-25 Mitchell and a TBM Avenger – two American bombers introduced and flown during World War II.
Visitors can purchase rides of 30 to 40 minutes aboard the B-25 for $495, said Doug Brown, a volunteer with the Historic Flight Foundation. The event also will feature food trucks.
The Historic Flight Foundation, which refurbishes old planes and helicopters, recently moved part of its collection to a new hangar at Felts Field, 6105 E. Rutter Ave.
