Request for Fly By

There are so many things right about Fall Fly Days that the complete and total misname, Family Friendly Babes and Bombers, is almost worth an overlook. Almost. You can’t say babes and then call yourself fun for all ages, unless you’re that coronary-inducing chicken restaurant over in Carrollton. But this event truly is family-friendly and a WWII buff’s paradise where Diamond Lil, “one of only two flying B-24’s in the world will venture out of the hangar for cockpit tours and ride opportunities.” Other highlights include P-51 Mustangs, Sherman tank demonstrations, aircraft tours and photo opps out the tailpipe. Concessions will be served and games will be played so scoop up your little fly guys and girls and head to Cavanaugh Flight Museum, 4572 Clare Chennault in Addison, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids.
