Dear readers:

• Vietnam-era UH-1H Bell Helicopter Huey, Bell Cobra attack copter and a World War II-era Stearman Biplane rides;
• High-end air/motor concours, which provides VIP access to the facility;
• Car shows for all makes, models and eras on Nov. 13-14. Registration is $35 and includes admission for two. The first 500 receive a collectible dash plaque and goody bags;
• Race car display (car used in the ESPN original film “3, The Story of Dale Earnhardt”;
• Custom motorcycle and boat display.
Special guests include devil-may-care Bo “Bandit” Darville Burt Reynolds in the Cessna Building to meet fans and sign autographs on Nov. 13, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. and Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. As a tribute to Reynolds and “Smokey and the Bandit,” there will be a “Bandit Bash.” Also racing legend Milo Coleman will make an appearance along with a replica of his AA/F Falcon. And motorcycle lovers will get to see freestyle and stunt rider Josh Borne in action at 11 a.m., 1 and 3 p.m. Nov. 12-14.
