BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — If you look up at the sky on June 11 you might see a flyover commemorating Flag Day.
The University will sponsor the Museum’s aircraft in the flyover, which includes a 1944 Convair BT-13 World War II aircraft trainer.
Beginning at the Museum’s hangar at Meadows Field, the flyover will start at 12pm on Friday, June 11th. As one of the most popular aircraft flown by American pilots during WWII, local residents can view a piece of history as the aircraft flies through the skies over the greater Bakersfield area.
Look up! ✈️ Tomorrow, @CalAeroUniv will be commemorating this year’s #FlagDay with a flyover. Did you know their flagship campus is located right here in Kern County at @FlyMeadowsField? Locally, students can get a degree in aviation science & their commercial pilot’s license. pic.twitter.com/r3gEHo9MnM
