NORTH NORWICH – Despite the forecast for some spotty showers on Saturday, it should be sunny and clear enough for flying – as in way up in the sky above Chenango County’s Lt. Warren E. Eaton Airport.
After months of preparation and fanfare, a professional aerobatics duo, in flight demonstrations and free plane rides for young, wanna-be-pilots are part of the 21st annual Airport Day scheduled Saturday at the Lt. Warren E. Eaton Airport.
It’s been about 10 years since a bona fide air show was part of Airport Day, and county officials are pleased to bring it back.
“The premier event starts at 1 p.m. and you don’t want to miss it. It’s a free old-fashioned air show. I think it’s pretty big for Norwich,” said event coordinator and maintenance worker Franklin Turner.
Norwich Supervisor David C. Law, who as chairman of the Chenango County Planning and Economic Development Committee, pushed hard all year long for Airport Day to go on.
