This year the fly-In is saluting our POWs and MIAs. Friday, September 15th, 2017 is the national recognition day. Marion Wings & Wheels Inc. will be honoring them the weekend of September 15th, 16 and 17th with Saturdayʼs opening ceremony at 8:30 A.M. Parachutists with the POW/MIA and the United States flags are planned along with a request for a fly-by of F-16s during the opening ceremony. Also requests have been made for a C-130 cargo plane, Super Blackhawk helicopter and Coast Guard Dolphin helicopter. MedFlightʼs helicopter will arrive approximately 9:00 A.M.

Supporting attractions are Pete Keelan, Ft. Wayne, IN with his 1955 North American Aviation T-28 Trojan. The T-28 was the transitional aircraft from piston to jet power. His T-28 is a multiple award winning plane. Robert Barr, Logansport, IN with a 1955 Beech T-34 Mentor. Another interesting plane will be the Air Tractor, a crop duster, of Matt Arnold, Commander, U.S. Navy, Ret., of Tactical Agriculture.

Ride in a helicopter like the ones in M*A*S*H! Helicopter rides in a Bell - 47 are $30.00/ person and will be given by Andrew Gordon, Busy Bee Helicopter on Saturday. However, if the demand warrants, he will stay-over to give rides on Sunday.

The “wheels” element of the fly-in is the “Cruise-In for Dialysis” which will feature local antique, classic cars and hot rods on Saturday.

The public will also have the opportunity to fly a “Drone” on a flight simulator courtesy of members of Marion Air Foils r/c club and see an R/C exhibition.

“This family oriented event is free to the public. Free parking. Free admission.. We are also hoping to be able to give kids, ages 8 to 17 their first flight in an airplaneSaturday, however, this is contingent upon the number of volunteers from the Experimental Aircraft Association, E.A.A. These rides are courtesy of the E.A.A.ʼs “Young Eagles Program” to encourage and inspire young folks into aviation” said Hempy. Should there be enough volunteers, members of the Central Ohio Soaring Association, COSA, hope to give sailplane/glider rides.

                             POWs & MIAs to be Honored at Fly-In


Marion, Ohio - Wings & Wheels Fly-In is now officially “Marion Wings & Wheels Inc.”, a non-profit entity: 501 c (3). Marion Wings & Wheels Inc., www.wingswheelsmarion.org, is a volunteer based organization promoting aviation science, technology and engineering at the Marion Municipal Airport,1530 Pole Lane Road, Marion, Ohio 43302 . The hope is to inspire students to pursue vocations in aviation.

September 16th and 17th will be the third annual fly-in featuring a WWII B-17 bomber, “Yankee Lady”. This “Flying Fortress” has been restored to pristine condition.The “Yankee Lady” will be giving rides and tours. Anyone interested in a flight can book it through the www.wingswheelsmarion.org website, www.yankeeairmuseum.org and there may be a few seats available the two days of the fly-in. Dan Hempy, president, said “ Those interested in booking a ride on a flight should probably not wait until the last minute. Weʼve been promoting this yearʼs fly-in in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, West Virginia, Virginia and Ontario, Canada. These flights are anticipated to sell-out. Flights are $450.00 and tours, given between flights, are less than $10.00. You have to understand and appreciate the labor and operational costs to maintain this historical aircraft. Flights are an exhilarating thirty minutes! Passengers will be able to move about the B-17ʻs flight deck, radio room, waist gunnery station, bomb bay and Plexiglass nose.Passengers will experience what the WWII crews experienced without being shot at. The “Yankee Lady” will be arriving Friday, September 15th between 11:00 A.M. and 11:30 A.M. if anyone is interested in seeing it come in”.
