When the Leaf Peep/Young Eagles event begins at noon this Sunday, October 13 at the Vinton County Airport, youngsters will receive a special treat. If they are 17 years of age or younger, they will receive one free airplane ride. An adult may be required to fly with very young children.
The event gives those who take airplane rides an opportunity to see the changing colors of the leaves from the air and also the chance to see a big section of Vinton County. Adult airplane ride tickets will be $30 each.
When the event begins at noon, a variety of foods will be ready in the airport shelter house.
Admission to the airport is free and food will be reasonably priced.
This is the final public event at the airport for 2013. All money raised at airport events is used to maintain and operate the airport which is located on Airport Road about six miles north of McArthur just off St. Rt. 93. Signs are posted.
