Plans are underway for the 2015 WACO Fly-In and Homecoming from Friday through Sunday, September 18-20. The fly-in is a celebration of the beautiful airplanes produced by the WACO company in Troy, Ohio and the men and women who flew them.
Troy was the home of the WACO factory, which was the largest U.S. manufacturer of civil aircraft during the 1920s and ’30s.
This event, which is open to the public, features the return of approximately 20 or more vintage WACO biplanes as well as other general aviation aircraft.
Weather permitting, WACO will offer biplane rides on Friday afternoon, Saturday and Sunday for $90 per person. Tickets may be purchased in advance from WACO (937-335-9226) or at the event. Rides are on a first come, first served basis.
Many vintage WACO airplanes will be on display on Friday afternoon and Saturday. Saturday will offer a full day of events, starting with a $6.00 pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. Activities for children will be available all day in the children’s tent with a radio-controlled airplane candy drop at 3 p.m.
A large group of Austin Healy cars will be on display, and a demonstration of ultralights from the Dayton Ultralights club is scheduled for 11 a.m. on Saturday.
Admission to the fly-in is $6 for adults, $5 for military veterans and $3 for students. Admission is free for children under school age.
