Community Event Features A Variety Of Aircraft For Public Viewing
Plant City Airport is hosting its third annual "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" event Saturday, March 23, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event's organizers say it's a chance to see real airplanes, remote control planes, helicopters, model trains in operation and on exhibit, and classic and exotic car displays. Antique railroad maintenance equipment, train artifacts and memorabilia will be on site for guests to explore.
As part of the EAA Young Eagles Program, kids ages 8-17 will be able to take free airplane flights (limited to the first 150) and Boys Scouts will have an opportunity to earn their aviation merit badge as well as their search and rescue badge at the event.
There will be activities of interest for the entire family including food and merchandise vendors, K-9 demonstrations, live entertainment, and a children's play area.
Admission is free; parking is $5.
