SHAFTER, Calif. - The Minter Field Air Museum encompasses much of Kern County's Air history and if you've never stopped by, well... today's the day.
Not only will you see a variety of vintage planes and race planes fly in this morning and throughout the rest of the day, if you arrived early, you were also treated to a pancake breakfast at 7 a.m.
All the money raised in Saturday's event will be used to benefit the museum, which aims to educate the public about Minter's Army Air Field and how the aviation industry has impacted Kern County.
"There's a lot of history here," Said Don Westfahl of the Minter Field Air Museum. "To begin with, at one point we had 16 generals here... we had Indonesian cadets here after World War II; we had Chinese pilots that came here and trained."
There will be a variety of planes and also vintage cars and military vehicles to hop into.
The Minter Field Air Field Museum Fly In begins at 7 a.m. and lasts until 3 p.m. at the Shafter Airport and Museum Hangar, located at 401 Vultee Street in Shafter. Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children.
