Prosser Fly-In to yield planes, trains, cars Saturday

July 18, 2013 

— Planes of all sorts will literally descend on the Prosser airport Saturday.

The fourth annual Fly-In, hosted by the Port of Benton and the Experimental Aircraft Association, involves displays of up to 100 aircraft, a military display, a model train display and antique and vintage cars. Also, the Civil Air Patrol Air Force Auxiliary from Yakima will display aircraft.

Pilots will begin arriving Friday evening, but the general public will find the most to see between 7 a.m. and noon Saturday, said Cherie Musselman, secretary of the Prosser chapter of the association.

The chapter will sell breakfast, lunch and dinner and host a hangar dance at 7 p.m. in the main hangar. For pilots, FAA representatives will lead seminars.

This year marks the fourth year in a row for the event but the tradition goes back many years, Musselman said. “We’re trying to bring it back,” she said.
