Free show from the sky

September 30, 2004

Albany - Albany skies will be buzzing with aerobatic and military planes.

Air Show 2004 will honor World War II veterans by showing off at least 20 restored World War II airplanes.

Pilots will also show off tricks in the air with national and international planes.

Those who are between the ages of eight and 17 will be able to take free airplane rides. Dougherty County Aviation Commission Chairman, Barry Taylor, says, "We've got some exciting things, we will also have a jet car, that's going to be exciting. I'm not going to tell you exactly, but they are going to have to come out there and see it, but it's going to out run the airplane."

The $85,000 event has sponsors for each plane, but it will cost you five dollars to park.

The Air Show is October 30th at the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport in Albany.
