Strong turnout to Flight Fest

Visitors check out the Canadian Harvard Aerobatic Team plane at Flight Fest.

Despite thunder storms and hail, the Chatham-Kent Flight Fest had a great turn out of young and old to check out the variety of vintage and new aircraft.

Presented by the Canadian and Owners Pilot Association (COPA) Chatham-Kent Chapter at the Chatham-Kent Municipal Airport on June 1, the primary focus of Flight Fest was a family fun day event allowing people to get up close and personal to a wide variety of aircraft and to highlight community services in the region.

The event featured planes such at the C-47 Skytrain Second World War aircraft, which was taking people up for rides during the day, the Canadian Harvard Aerobatic Team, a Beechcraft 18, a T-28 Trojan, Challenger Ultra Lights, a Stearman bi-plane and many more.

Chatham-Kent Mayor Darrin Canniff took in the C-47 aircraft with wife, Christine.

Performing at the event also, was the OPP Golden Helmets precision motorcycle team.
