Airport hosting ‘Wings Over Savannah’ open house

Sept. 30-- The wonder of flight never loses its appeal.
The Savannah-Hardin County Airport is holding an open house and “fly-in” on Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Visitors can get “up close and personal” with aircraft from a variety of eras.
Entry is free, though some things can be purchased like food and airplane and helicopter rides.
Flying has come a long way since the first powered flight by the Wright brothers on Dec. 3, 1903, covering 120 feet in 12 seconds, at a speed of only 6.8 miles per hour.
“If the weather is pretty, there easily could be 50 planes here,” said Montill Warren, manager of the Savannah-Hardin County Airport.
Warren says a T6 plane is being donated by Morris Ray for the day, with all plane ride proceeds going toward the Civil Air Patrol, an auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force.
