On Saturday, doors open at 9 for a variety of displays, family-friendly activities, live music, and collections of civilian and military vehicles. Robotics teams and bagpipers will compete for your attention. Vintage aircraft flying demonstrations begin at 2:30 though biplane rides will be available throughout the day. And to cap it off, there will be a flying tribute to Mira Slovak. On Sunday, doors again open at 9 for a more casual day of strolling among the aircraft and engaging with the pilots.
