  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

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.”
