Get Your Dose of Aviation History at the 2014 Long Beach Airport Fly-In

Meet the Fokker S-11, a 1920s Dutch primary trainer with a propeller engine and the Cessna 172G Skyhawk, the king of lightweight aircraft in the 1960s. Walk around a Boeing C-17, marvel it its size and its history as a military cargo plane, developed after the Cold War. Check out the Bell 206B-3 Jet Ranger, one of the most widely-used and successful commercial helicopters ever built.

These are just a few of the aircraft that will be on static display at the Long Beach Airport's Fly-In 2014, a festival featuring entertainment, food trucks, the Aquarium of the Pacific's Aquarium on Wheels and a JetBlue giveaway. On Saturday, November 15 from 11:00AM to 3:00PM, find out about flight schools, commercial airlines and nerd out with a dose of aviation history.

This year, airport tenants, including JetBlue and Paradise, among others, will donate gifts for the opportunity drawing. If you bring a pantry or canned food item to donate for the Food Finders Drive, you will be made eligible for the opportunity drawing.
