Thomasville Fly-In this weekend

October 10, 2003

Thomasville - James Dekle learned to appreciate airplanes from his father. "It's just something I've loved since I was four years old," says Dekle.   

And now James has passed the love of flying along to his son, John. "I've grown up with airplanes," says John.  "My dad was an early influence in my life with them."

And many others share their love for aircraft and flying, and that's why they come to Thomasville from all over the country for the fly-in. The fly-in is one of the largest in the SouthEast, and more than 300 planes are expected.

James says, rain or shine, 30 planes or 300, he's sure to have a good time. He says, "I haven't ever seen an airplane I didn't like." And it doesn't look like that will change this weekend.

The fly-in started Friday, but the main events are Saturday, with plane, helicopter, and even hot air balloons rides. All activities take place at the Thomasville Municipal Airport and are free to the public.
