‘Wings Over Savannah’ fly-in, open house set for Oct. 6
The annual “Wings Over Savannah” fly-in and open house is at the Savannah-Hardin County Airport, on Saturday, Oct. 6, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The opening ceremony at the free event takes place at 11 a.m. During the playing of the national anthem, two parachutists will drop, while carrying the American flag and the Tennessee flag.
The theme this year is “Patriotism, STEM Education and Aviation.” STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
“The airport staff and airport family welcome the public to attend. We highly encourage families, kindergarten through 12th grade students and teachers to come out to see the programs for kids being offered by the Civil Air Patrol, Air Force Association and the military,” said Derick Seaton, Savannah-Hardin County Airport manager.
Display aircraft will be on hand and there will be War Bird aerial demonstrations, vendors, party jumpers and a balsa airplane flying competition.
“For those who’d like to display their aircraft or perform aerial demonstrations at the open house, contact the airport soon,” said Seaton. “Also, contact the airport to get registration forms to apply to set up as a vendor.”
Ten gallons of fuel will be given to the first 10 pilots who fly in.
Airplane and helicopter rides will be available for a fee.
