Flights on historic WWII aircraft to be featured at ‘Airport Dayz’

Chandler Airport Dayz, a weekend of aviation fun featuring a variety of aircraft, informational booths, vendors, food and live music, will be held April 16-17 at Chandler Municipal Airport and hosted by Chandler Air Service, a leading flight school located at 1675 E. Ryan Road.
Several aircraft from the Commemorative Air Force Arizona Wing Aviation Museum will be on display, including a pair of WWII bombers, the B-17 “Sentimental Journey” and B-25 “Made in the Shade” . Tours inside and flights aboard the war birds will be available for purchase.
