On Friday, pilots demonstrated formations with their Beech Bonanza airplanes that were used in times of war. Directors of the event say it's a good time for everyone to get together and share their love of flying.

"They like to learn about their aircraft. They like to learn how to maintain them properly, and they like to be able to get together with people with like interests," said Thomas Turner, director of Technical Operations for the American Bonanza Society.
