NEW HAVEN — Tweed New Haven Regional Airport
announces “Tweed Airfest 2011,” a family-centered air show and fair on Oct. 1 and 2 with all proceeds donated to Angel Flight NE (www.angelflightne.org).
Airfest 2011 will feature a variety of aircraft on display, including World War II planes. Visitors can see the planes up close and learn about them from pilots who fly them and specialists who maintain them. The Iron Eagles will perform an acrobatics show, and many local food vendors will be on site. In addition, the Airfest will offer the chance to climb aboard a (tethered) hot air balloon, sign up for helicopter rides and visit sponsor displays.
Angel Flight NE is nonprofit volunteer network of private pilots who donate their time, planes, fuel and resources to provide free air transportation, including transporting children in need of transplants. Tickets for the show go on sale May 15 at www.tweedairfest.com.
