PROSSER – The annual Prosser Airport Days and Fly-in will be held the weekend of July 18-20.
The weekend promises to be one filled with food, vendors and opportunities to ride in bi-planes and to examine up close the vintage airplane displays.
The fun begins with an appreciation dinner Friday night at the airport. Activities kick into full swing Saturday morning with a fly-in breakfast. Breakfast will be served from 7 to 9:30 a.m.
Throughout the day there will be classes and seminars featuring the Ninety-Nines, the Yakima Civil Air Patrol, Yakima Valley Aero Modelers and nostalgic war bird bi-planes.
“One Chance for Glory” author Ted Heikell will also be on hand giving a seminar about the subject of his book, Clyde Pangborn, the first pilot to fly across the Pacific Ocean nonstop.
In addition to vendors and classes, members of EAA Chapter 1466 will be selling raffle tickets with the top prize being a P-51 Mustang pedal plane, built by chapter members. Other raffle prizes include a year’s membership to Milbrandt Cellar Club and a $100 gift certificate to Sportys Pilot Shop and Gifts.
Also throughout the weekend there will be other activities of interest, including the Alpaca Spin-in and the annual Prosser Art and Wine Gala in downtown Prosser.
