WWII Aircraft Arrive For Radials N’ Rivers
Event Starts at 9am Saturday | Hillcrest Aircraft Company
LEWISTON, ID – If you heard a lot of noise over the Lewiston sky this morning, it was a group of World War II fighters coming to town. The Radials N’ Rivers Fly-In is tomorrow. Today the planes are coming in throughout the day to find a good place to park for viewing. This morning it was the P51 Mustangs and P40 Warhawks.
This afternoon two Flying Aces from World War II will be flying in for a banquet tonight. Bud Anderson is an Army Air Corps Triple Ace, which means he shot down more than 15 enemy aircraft during the war. “Whitey” Fightner is a Navy Flying Ace and the only living original Blue Angel.
Tomorrow the gates to Hillcrest Aircraft Company open at 7:00 am. Hillcrest is on the west side of the airport. The opening ceremonies start at 9:00 with a flight session to follow. There will be an afternoon flight session starting at 2:00 pm. The event closes down at 5:00 pm.
