WISCASSET, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --A big crowd had a great time at the Wings Over Wiscasset Air Show -- where the World War II planes of the Texas Flying Legends Museum gave quite a display.
This is the first year the Town of Wiscasset teamed up with the museum to stage the event.
The Texas Flying Legends have been coming here for three summers, and have held open house events each year. But they and the town wanted to do something more to showcase the Museum and the airport itself.
They've had a steady crowd of grownups and kids coming in to see the planes, the old cars... and even take helicopter and airplane rides. We sent our camera up with one young man getting his birds eye view of the airport. For the Museum, its also about inspiring kids to fly and to teach them the story of the pilots and civilians who won the war and helped advance aviation.
"If one kid comes here today and is inspired by these airplanes and what they do, and goes home and reads a book and learns something and decides maybe there's a place for them in this world of aviation this event today was a success," said Doug Rozendaal of the Texas Flying legends.
There's a good chance a lot of kids may have gotten that inspiration today. A rare chance to see some American history flying and performing, of course, is also exciting for their parents and grandparents and there have been a lot of them here today as well.
