Why Go To Warbird Weekend

Honestly, it looks like a really fun event and something you can do with the whole family.

Growing up, we went to quite a few airshows. I always liked the vintage planes the best. This is a great opportunity to see them up close and personal.

Remember the Rockford Air Fest? I definitely miss it so this could act as a replacement.
