GAINESVILLE - The Gainesville-based Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 611 will host its 45th Annual Cracker Fly-In July 5 in Gainesville at Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport.<br />
Organizers say more than 135 aircraft are expected from all over the Southeast including historic, homebuilt, helicopters and more. Aircraft judging in several categories will take place and a pancake breakfast will be served at 7:30 and lunch, catered by Branch House Tavern, at 11:30.<br />
This is not an air show but is billed as a "car show for airplanes." There will, however, be helicopter and bi-plane rides and Lanier Flight Center will have new aircraft on display - and there'll be a display of Austin Healey cars and a Jumpy Castle for kids.<br />
Admission is $3 per person, children 12-and-under free. Parking on Palmour drive next to I-985.
