Airport hosting Wings and Wheels on Saturday

The Salisbury Regional Airport is hosting Wings and Wheels, sponsored by Piedmont Airlines, on Saturday, May 20, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to celebrate Armed Forces Day and Aviation Appreciation Month.

“This is a great event for the whole family,” said Airport Manager Dawn Veatch. “We are excited to showcase our airport and invite the community to come out and share our passion for flying.”

Throughout the day aircraft will be on display including military aircraft and helicopters, assets from the Maryland National Guard, the U.S. Navy Test Pilot School and the Maryland State Police. Private pilots from around the region will be flying in and will have their planes on display as well. Airplane and helicopter rides will be available and food trucks and other vendors will be on hand.

Piedmont Airlines will have aircraft on display and tours of Salisbury’s air traffic control tower will be available. Classic cars will be on display and live music from several different live bands will entertain throughout the day.

The event kicks off with a free pancake breakfast at Bay Land Aviation from 8 to 10 a.m. Sponsors and volunteers are still needed, so visit flySBYairport.com to learn more.
