Mark July 27 on your calendar, the date of the 4th Annual Friday Harbor Airport Fly-In and Open House.

Friday Harbor Airport draws more than its share of intriguing aircraft, antiques, warbirds and homebuilts as well.

Spectators have enjoyed exciting fly-bys of rare aircraft from the Heritage Flight Museum in Bellingham and Historic Flight at Everett’s Paine Field in each of the previous three years. The Blackjack Squadron, a Fly-In favorite, will be back with its impressive formation arrival and landing.

The Fly-In also features displays and activities, including face-painting and free gliders for the kids, and you can register to win free airplane and helicopter rides. The event kicks off at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast, and the show starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 3 p.m; hamburgers, pizza bratwursts, ice cream and popcorn will be available for purchase.

Admission and parking are free, as is transportation to and from downtown Friday Harbor to the airport in a specially marked shuttle. For info, or to watch a video from the 2012 Fly-In, visit, www.fridayharborflyin.blogspot.com.
