By Bob Hallmark - bio | email

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- Thundering bombers and vintage fighters filled skies over Gilmer today in an annual veterans weekend tribute. It was the annual veterans weekend air show at Fox-Stephens field. Vintage world war two planes were on display for visitors to check out. A C-47 on display was the real thing, and actually dropped paratroopers in both north Africa and Europe. Still going strong, several people went up for a ride in it. The local event drew nation wide participation, many pilots came for the event from as far away as California.
