Description


Perch next to the first man to fly over Grand Rapids and share the spine-tingling thrills of wing-walker Ormer Locklear. Learn how barnstormer Fish" Hassell led locals to the sky from the shores of Reeds Lake and paved the way for a new air route to Europe. Be there as helicopters and gliders roll off Grand Rapids assembly lines during World War II. Cheer Charles Lindbergh as he steps out of the Spirit of St. Louis at the old Kent County Airport. Ride from Grand Rapids to Detroit on the country's first passenger airline. With journalist Gordon Beld as your pilot, you're in for a spectacular aerial view of Grand Rapids aviation.
