Albany-- All eyes will be turned skyward as thousands are expected to attend a world-class air show in Albany.

Fog kept the airplanes grounded for a press demonstration Friday, but planes like an Italian Marchetti and double wing Steerman will be flown by pilots from around the country at the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport Saturday.

The aerobatic pilots will perform loops, rolls and other stunts.

A Camilla man will fly this Pitts Special. He's been flying more than thirty years. George Hall says, "It is just the feeling of freedom, making the airplane do different things. I really haven't figured out what makes us tick but we enjoy it."

There will be World War Two planes, a Japanese bomber, and a Japanese Zero that will demonstrate a dog fight.

Green berets will start off the flying exhibition by parachuting at 11:30 a.m.

The gates open at 8:30 a.m. There will be carnival rides and games, free flights for youngsters. The show ends at 3:00 p.m.
