“We invite all pilots to fly in or drive in for this historic event,” said airport officials. “As an additional incentive, Tom Smith who owns a BT-15 Vultee (pictured above) that was delivered to Bainbridge Army Air Field in August 1942, the first month flight ops began here, plans to fly in for the ceremony. I don’t think you want to miss this.”
