Elizabeth City, NC, Oct. 28, 2014: If you look to the skies in Elizabeth City this weekend, you may see chocolate treats falling from the wild blue yonder. The First in Flight Festival returns on Saturday, Nov. 1, featuring vintage and modern aircraft displays, free airplane rides for kids and the famous candy drop—a re-enactment of the Berlin Airlift of 1948-49.
Held at the Elizabeth City Regional Airport from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., the First in Flight Festival was first held in 2008 as a way to introduce students to a career in the aviation industry. This year’s schedule will highlight a number of event favorites, including free airplane rides for children ages 8-17, offered by the Experimental Aircraft Association’s “Young Eagle Program”; military and civilian aircraft for viewing; a remote control air show presented by Radio Active Air Shows; and free lunch for the first 1,000 people, courtesy of McDonald’s. New this year will be
the Bandit Flight Team featuring two Chinese YAKs on display and the Chrome Pony Mustang Club with antique Mustang cars for viewing.
