Third annual fete at East Hampton Airport

Put Just Plane Fun On Your Radar




The East Hampton Aviation Association is hosting the third annual Just Plane Fun Day, a chance for guests to explore the East Hampton airport at a family-friendly event.

This year’s fete will be held on Saturday, September 7, from 10 AM to 3 PM. And there is much to explore. Classic aircraft and vintage warbirds will be on display, along with modern jets and other unique and historically significant airplanes.

The association was formed to represent the interests of local general aviation and historic plane enthusiasts including pilots, owners, and operators of aircraft at the East Hampton Airport. “The airport, which has been serving the East End since the 1930s, offers a unique opportunity for aviation enthusiasts,” states the EHAA’s website.

For those who prefer the open roads to the open skies, there will also be a vintage car show featuring a selection of classic automobile models from as early as the 1920s.

Just want to chow down? There’s more than airplane food available with gourmet local food trucks like Noah’s on the Road, Around the Fire, Eat Me Drink Me, and Frostie’s ice cream.

Raffles will be available for purchase and guests will have a chance at winning aviation prizes. Admission and parking are free, with a rain date of Sunday, September 8.
