(KETK) Henderson Tx — On June 7th, the Rusk County Airport will host its first ever "Fly-In and Air Show".
It's a chance to see skilled pilots fly planes that were used to defend our country.
The airport has had Fly-In's for years, but this is the first time they've connected an air show right alongside it.
Vintage airplanes will be performing formation flying, and on the weekend after one of the most important military invasions in human history, D-Day, a point not lost on those involved with this event.
The gates will open at 8:00 AM, with airplanes and classic cars on display.
Congressman Louie Gohmert will also be on hand to honor our veterans.
If you do plan to make it to the event, be sure to get there before 12:30 PM, because that is when the air show will finally take off.
The Rusk County Airport is located at 3303 FM 13 W., Henderson, TX, United States, 75654.
