The 3rd Annual Airport Day was a huge success!
The Army brought both a Black Hawk and an Apache Helicopter. The Stearman Group brought several Stearman, while local pilots brought a variety of aircraft from a 1946 Ercoupe to a Cessna C525 jet. Admission was FREE; donations were accepted at the gate.
Children played in the bounce houses, had their faces painted, made paper airplanes and just had a good time. Quite a few sat in the aircraft, some signed up for rides later on, and a few decided to take flight lessons.
Proceeds raised by Airport Day 2019 were donated to Fostering Bulloch. Fostering Bulloch is an organization dedicated to sharing the Love of Christ with children in crisis situations, in real and tactile ways. They actively recruit new foster homes to serve the abused, abandoned and neglected among us.
The Collings Foundation “Wings of Freedom Tour” arrived at Statesboro-Bulloch County Airport on October 31, 2018.
The Collings Foundation is a non-profit, Educational Foundation (501(c)3), founded in 1979. The purpose of the Foundation is to organize and support “living history” events and the preservation, exhibition, and interaction of historical artifacts that enable Americans to learn more about their heritage through direct participation.
The “Wings of Freedom Tour” has two goals: to honor the sacrifices made by our veterans that allow us to enjoy our freedom; and to educate the visitors, especially younger Americans, about our national history and heritage. The Foundation encourages people to tour the planes, talk to the veterans who come to visit the aircraft, and participate in a “flight experience”.
