  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Air show flies in Saturday

Planes from Michigan and other airports in Ohio will converge in Bowling Green this weekend for the air fair.

Matt McVicker, manager of Wood County Regional Airport said he is hoping the community will come out and experience aviation at the Wood County Air Fair, Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“The opportunity to see what the Aviation program does at the airport, to see what the University looks like from the sky, is a pretty cool perspective,” McVicker said.

There are many planes coming from all over the region for the fair, which is free and open to the public.

The B25 airplane comes from Batavia, Ohio’s Claremont County Airport. The B17 comes from the Yankee Airport from Ypsilanti, Mich. The SNJ-4, a Naval training vehicle comes from Akron County Airport and a TBM Avenger-Bomber flies in from Port Clinton.

Helicopter rides and other airplane rides are also available. Each airplane will charge a ‘pay-per-ride’ fee, McVicker said.

McVicker said he expects 4,000 to 6,000 people to come to the event.

“Last year we held the event in August, but we are having it in September because more people are in town, the student populous is important as well,” he said

The Flying Eagle Air Club will be at the Air Fair and are looking for people to join their club.

Dave Cole, the president, said the club is participating in the event because they are looking for new members, experienced flyers and not.

“We take in members who have very little experience,” Cole said. “That’s why I joined the club, and look at me now, I’m the president.”

Cole said the club and the airport work together closely and the club keeps both of their planes at the airport.

He said he wants people to come out to the event to gain “education on aviation” and to learn about the benefits the airport brings to Wood County.

Students who like their Facebook page and follow them on Twitter could win free helicopter and plane rides as well as other smaller prizes like a free T-shirt, said Becca Barth, University junior and head of public relations for the Wood County airport.

“Students should bring a chair, walk around, or sit in the viewing area,” McVicker said. “It’s going to be loud, fun to watch with loud and cool visuals.”
