Some vintage aircraft will bring the sights, sounds, and stories of aviation history to the Vermilion Regional Airport this week. The Commemorative Air Force will bring the historic aircraft tomorrow through Sunday. One of only two B-29 bombers in the world that still fly, will be accompanied by several other vintage planes, according to airport manager Mike Vadeboncoeur.
He says this is a chance for children and others to view planes unlike anything else in the skies these days.
Visitors will be able to view the aircraft up close, purchase rides, and tour the B-29 cockpit when the airplane is not flying. The aircraft will be staged at Midwest Aero Restorations, Ltd., at the airport. The event is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Access is $10 for adults and $5 for youth age 10 through 18. Children under age 10 are admitted free.
