St. Landry's Parish Fly-In and Warbird Expo, June 26-28, 2020
Don’t miss this must-do summer event! Put your hands on history and see historic American military aviation up close. An array of vintage WWII warbirds, including the Commemorative Air Force’s iconic B-17 Flying Fortress Texas Raiders will be appearing at the second annual Summer Fly-In at St. Landry Parish Airport. The public is invited to enjoy onboard tours of the aircraft, or take the ultimate Living History Flight Experience and see Louisiana from the sky! Fly in the famous Flying Fortress, or take the machine-gunner’s seat in the fearsome SB2C Helldiver dive-bomber, the only one if its kind left in the world. Try out the open-cockpit Stearman bi-plane, or take the whole family up in the Navy JRB transport. Flights begin at $100 for the Navy transport, $275 for the Stearman, $475 for the B-17 and $995 for the dive-bomber.
Event admission includes fun for the whole family including cockpit tours, a classic car display, food trucks, live music, radio controlled aircraft and more! More information and details visit www.facebook.com/stlandryparishairport/
