Free airplane rides for youngsters offered Sunday at Martin Airfield


COLLEGE PLACE -- Young-sters with an eye to the skies can take off for real Sunday at Martin Field.

Members of the local Experimental Aircraft Association will offer free airplane rides to encourage young people to take an interest in aviation. Riders must be between 8 and 17 years old and must be accompanied by a guardian.

Flights will begin at 9 a.m. and continue to 3 p.m. with each flight lasting about 20 minutes, said Wilma Cheney, one of the event organizers. Chapter members will also be available to talk about flying, airplanes and how to earn a pilot's license.

Information is available at 522-1847.
