But these weren't any old airplanes flying in circles. The concept of the show was to bring in a variety of warbirds and unusual airplanes for people to see. Noteworthy airplanes flying overhead were PV-2 Harpoons, C-60 Lodestars and C-1 Traders, to name a few. And while the event gave owners a good excuse to fly their airplanes, the show did more than that. "We gave away 74 free rides to World War II vets," Gryder said. This included many flights in Pecos Bill, a P-51 Mustang owned by Cowden Ward Jr.
