A Huey helicopter from the Wyoming Air National Guard was one of the many displays at this year’s Airport Family Fun Day at Western Nebraska Regional Airport. An estimated 2,500 people attended the event last Saturday. Members of the Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 608, along with assistance from other chapters, gave a record number 90 Young Eagle flights. The flights are for youth ages 8 – 17 that haven’t had an airplane ride before. The EAA chapter thanks everyone for their attendance.
