THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) –Hundreds of pilots and planes will be in the Rose City Friday for the 43rd Annual Thomasville Fly-In.

It's sponsored by the Thomasville Aviation Club and will include aerial demonstrations, a Candy Drop, a Spot Landing Contest, aircraft rides, and an antique engine and air memorabilia collection.

Visitors travel by car and plane from all over the country to participate.

Florida native and pilot Merle Lilly told us why he's been coming to the Fly-In since 1975, "A lot of airplanes, and they have a nice bar-b-que. It's pretty hard to beat this. And the weather! Last year it was wet but this year they have super weather. I believe they're going to get a lot of airplanes and a lot of people."

Most of the planes will arrive Friday.

The Thomasville Fly-In is held at the Thomasville Regional Airport and is free and open to the public. For more information, visit www.thomasvilleflyin.com.
