Warbird Weekend returns to Idaho County Airport

     Set your summer calendars for a fly-by as Warbird Weekend returns for its second annual event at the Idaho County Airport in Grangeville.

     New this year is a two-day event, Saturday and Sund6-20-13-warbird-weekend---lay, July 13-14, that is planning to feature historic aircraft flights both days, as well as Sunday activities connected to aviation.

     Warbird Weekend started for participants to view historic and current aircraft, and to enjoy aviation-related events, as well as to showcase the Idaho County Airport as a place for both business development and as a gateway to north central Idaho’s back country wilderness.

     This year’s event, free to the public, will run from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Idaho County Airport. 

SATURDAY, JULY 13

     Plans are to offer static aircraft displays that participants can get up and close with and talk with the pilots and owners. Flights for purchase in historic aircraft will also be offered.

     The Experimental Aviation Association (EAA) Young Eagles Program will return to offer free introductory flights to kids ages 8 to 17.

     Returning will be the popular guided tours of the Anderson Aeromotive facility as well as the U.S. Forest Service Grangeville Air Center smokejumper base.

     Also, on site will be displays on regional aviation history, presentation by area chambers of commerce, a morning breakfast and later a beer and wine garden and lunch. 

SUNDAY, JULY 14

     Sunday will also feature a presentation by area remote control aircraft enthusiasts, flights for kids with EAA Young Eagles, and more historic aircraft purchase flights.
