Fun, education on tap at annual fly-in

The Havelock Tourist and Event Center has a number of military aircraft that are on static display and new exhibits detailing the history of aviation. All serve as teaching tools at the Fly-In, Lewis said.

Kids can learn about weather and aerodynamics at various displays and booths during the event. Parents can photograph their children wearing pilot and crew gear. A number of items geared toward learning will also be given away to children.

“It’s a great night for families and their children to come and think about science and look at the airplanes,” said Frank Bottorff, Havelock city manager and a former Marine Corps pilot.

Families are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets for a giant screen presentation of Disney’s “Planes” at 7 p.m.

Concessions will be available throughout the event.

“If you haven’t been to the Fly-In, you need to bring your kids out,” Havelock Commissioner George Liner said. “It’s a great show. It’s impressive. It’s a lot of fun. Even if you’re a child at heart, you need to come out. There’s a lot to see.”
