Gilmer Hosts Annual Vintage Air Show

A tribute took place Saturday in Gilmer for the men and machines that won the battles of the pacific in World War II.  It was the annual Flight of the Phoenix Air Show and Fly-in at Fox Stephens Field in Gilmer.  This year's theme is V-J Day, or victory in the pacific theatre.  Several aircraft that flew during that time period, such as vintage P-51 Mustangs, and a B-25 Mitchell Bomber were on hand for crowds to get a close look at.  The event was highlighted by a parachute jump, and a military flyover from U-S Air Force warplanes.
