PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. — World War II pilot Bud Anderson will be the guest speaker for the Atlanta Warbird Weekend’s “Dinner with an Ace,” at 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 12, at the 57th Fighter Group restaurant at Dekalb-Peachtree Airport (KPDK).
Tickets are $125 for this limited seating event, which was sold out last year.
Several vintage aircraft are joining the fleet of P-51 Mustangs that will be on display for the second Annual Atlanta Warbird Weekend (AWW) Sept. 12-13 at KPDK. This year’s theme is a “Gathering of Mustangs,” a rare collection of P-51 Mustangs along with a B-17 “Memphis Belle,” British RAF Spitfire, German FW-190, Stearman biplane, DC-3, and other famous World War II aircraft.
All of the planes will be on display and rides will be available in the Dixie Wing’s P-51, Douglas SBD-5 dive bomber and an LT-6 Mosquito.
Rides on the CAF aircraft can be purchased in advance. Rides may be purchased during the show if space is available. Ground tours of these rare aircraft will be available for a small fee, which helps cover the cost of restoring and touring them.
Atlanta Warbird Weekend is free to the public from 10 a.m.to 4 p.m. Parking will be available for $10 per car.
