With a major military installation such a huge part of our city, aircraft have long had a prominent role in Abilene. And we as residents have a long fascination with flight. Each year flight fans, civilians and members of the military come together to celebrate the art of flight at the Abilene Airfest. This year, a 50th anniversary celebration is part of the show, along with some old and new exhibits. KACU’s Dave Smith sits down for more insights with Gray Bridwell of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce and Major Jim Corrigan of the United States Air Force.
