- The Thomasville Regional Airport was once home to a WWII airfield.
- This weekend that same airport will be home to Thomasville's annual Fly-In.
- Check out the video above to go inside one of the airplanes that will be present.
The Thomasville Regional Airport dates back to World War II. The runways here have a rich history.
"I was named after a gentleman who died in WWII," said Forston Rumble.
Now this runway is reaching a whole new generation through what is called the Thomasville Fly-In.
"Kandace, this is a Honda jet," said Rumble.
It's a fun-filled weekend where pilots and Rose City neighbors will gather and learn about planes such as this one, both on and off the ground.
I spoke with one of the pilots Wednesday.
"What do you like most about flying?" "Landing."
His name is Forston Rumble and he has a plane named Iris.
Rumble says he's been flying for 15 years.
Now, he's looking forward to exciting the next generation with fun events such as the Fly-In.
"Name a child who doesn't like airplanes. Everybody likes airplanes at a certain age," said Rumble.
The Fly-in will kick off Friday and will last the entire weekend.
