Community members are welcome at the event to observe the plane pull. There will also be a children's plane pull, military and civilian aircraft displays, veteran exhibits and a brat fry. There is no cost for event admission or parking. "We here at Old Glory Honor Flight are so pleased to see our long-term partner, Appleton International Airport, take a lead role in this awesome fundraising opportunity," said Drew MacDonald, Old Glory Honor Flight president.
