Preview to Wings Over Waukesha Airshow
WAUKESHA--- The Wings Over Waukesha Airshow opens to the public on Saturday, August 24th at 10:00am. Adult admission is $10 and child admission is $5.
For an additional cost, you can ride a B-17 bomber plane from World War II or a Ford TriMotor. Airshow guests can also talk to pilots, watch flight demonstrations, and listen to live music.
CBS58's Laura Rodriguez went for a ride inside the B-17 with two World War II veterans. They say today's flight was a trip down memory lane.
"Today was wonderful. I looked out at those propellers and all 4 of them were running," said Harvin Abrahamson.
"The hips are arthritic today, I could not lift myself up as I used to in the front there. And the cockpit is quite small, it seemed so easy when I was young, but it was difficult today," said Kenneth Rawling.
Organizers say there are plenty of activities for kids too.
"Our goal is to honor the veterans that kept us safe, but we also want to get the kids involved. It's always a good day when you hear a kid leaving say mom I wanna be a pilot when I grow up," said Kurt Stanich, President of Wings Over Waukesha.
