Sunriver Resort is in final preparations to host the 17th Annual Wings and Wheels Charity Fly-In on Saturday, July 30, 2011 at the Sunriver Airport from 7:30-11:30am. Antiques enthusiasts, airplane aficionados, and pancake connoisseurs of all ages are invited to the local fundraiser, which features a pancake breakfast, antique car show, specialty airplane showcase, biplane rides, helicopter tours, aerial demonstrations, and many more family-friendly activities.
Airplanes showcased at past Fly-Ins include a 1955 T-34 Mentor, 1941 Interstate Cadet, 1943 North American T-6, 1953 Cessna 170, 1929 New Standard Biplane (rides available!), and a 1933 Waco. Featured among the 50 antique cars on display will be a 1929 Essex, 1928 Ford, 1923 Dodge Roadster and a 1956 Ford Thunderbird.
The event is free to the public, with tickets to the Special Recipe Pancake Breakfast (beginning at 7:30 AM) available at $5 per person. More than 2,000 guests are expected, including participants from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, California, Nevada, Hawaii, Canada, and beyond. A benefit for New Generations Child Care, the event is expected to raise thousands of dollars for the Sunriver child care center, which provides grants and support for area low-income families.
