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.
North Georgia's sunny sky and comfortable temperatures brought out the visitors Saturday to the 20th Annual 'Day at the Fort' at Fort Hollingsworth, nestled in the rolling Banks County countryside near Alto.
