Fullerton, Ca – Fullerton Airport Day 2014 will be held on Saturday, May 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event will feature static displays of vintage and modern aircrafts, aircraft fly-by's, classic automobiles, aviation-related exhibits, booths and vendors, and activities for children and adults. Commander Chuck Street will serve as master of ceremonies. Admission and parking are free; airplane and helicopter rides will be available for a donation. 

This year, Airport Day 2014 is in conjunction with Trains, Planes, & Automobiles Transportation Celebration in Fullerton, a trio of successive weekends in May beginning with Railroad Days at the Fullerton Transportation Center on May 3 & 4, continuing with Airport Day on May 10, and ending with the Muckenthaler Motor Car Festival at the Muckenthaler Cultural Arts Center on May 17 & 18. 

The event is expected to bring several thousand visitors to the Fullerton Airport with local aviation businesses and others in attendance. The Fullerton Police and Fire Departments will be on display along with representatives from Anaheim Police Department and the California Highway Patrol.  Airport Day gives the airport an opportunity to showcase the important role it plays not only to Fullerton, but to the surrounding communities as well.
