Aviation Fair Info

Can you hear the aircraft engines? Can you see the planes and helicopter taking off and landing? Can you see the hangars cleared of normal working equipment and holding mission exhibits and food concessions . . . the colorful tents erected for various activities . . . the people coming to learn about, and celebrate what God is doing around the world???



We hope that all those who came out to the 2018 Fair enjoyed their time
and were able to connect with the exhibitors and other activities.
Saturday was a good day with good attendance and lots going on.
Sunday was rainy all afternoon, so flying was curtailed,
but activities under roof continued.
It was a great blessing to see all the missions involved in aviation
as they "KEEP THEM FLYING . . . AND SERVING" around the world,
and to realize that technical talents are of great value in missions.
