Historic WACO Airfield and Museum will host the 26th Annual IH Scout and Light Truck Nationals Friday through Sunday, August 14-16. The show will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

The family-friendly event will include a swap meet with parts venders selling new, old and used parts; seminars, vehicle games and judging competition. Food vendors will be on site.

Admission to the event is $8 per day or $15 for the weekend. Admission is free to children under 12. The admission fee includes admission to the WACO Museum. Biplane rides will be available at extra cost.

The purpose of the event is to preserve and promote the legacy of International Harvester products. Highlighted in the wide array of products are all IH motor trucks as well as the first mass-produced Sport Utility Vehicle, the Scout.

Did You Know the original Scout was created as a competitor to the civilian version of the Willys Jeep? The Scout was developed and ultimately produced in less than two years’ time—a remarkable achievement in the automotive industry in the 1960s. The Scout line was formally introduced to the public on Jan. 18, 1961.

The WACO Aircraft Co was the largest producer of aircraft in the country in the 1920s and 30s. It also produced the CG4A glider used in World War II.

Historic WACO Field is located at 1865 South County Road 25A in Troy, Ohio. Visit www.wacoairmuseum.org for more information.
