Tweed Airfest 2011 is a two-day family-centered air show and fair with all proceeds donated to Angel Flight North East. 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 well-known aerial performers 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, visit sponsor displays, and more.
Executive Director Tim Larson says "Airfest 2011 is a chance to view the world of pilots who fly for business or pleasure." Tickets for the show go on sale May 15. 203-466-8833 x100.
