Hundreds of aeronautical enthusiasts of all ages gathered at the East Hampton Airport on Saturday, September 7, to enjoy the flyovers and static displays of both civilian and military vintage aircrafts. Hosted by the East Hampton Aviation Association, the event also included rare antique cars dating back to the early 1900s, classic sport cars, fire and rescue trucks, food trucks, and a raffle. Adults and children alike patiently awaited their turn to sit in the cockpits of the Cessna Citation family of jets that commanded the tarmac. The day was topped off with Pilot Matt Kropp’s flyover and dramatic landing of a Grumman TBM Avenger torpedo bomber.
