Air Fair Lands Back in Scottsdale

B-25 Mitchell "Maid in the Shade"

This weekend marks the return of the Scottsdale Air Fair after a hiatus of more than a decade due to the events of 9/11.

The family and I hung out there all day yesterday, and I’ll probably go back again today at least for a little while. My 7-year-old enjoyed the Kid’s Zone bounce houses and other kid-friendly activities.

I enjoyed getting up close and personal with some current generation military aircraft and some vintage warbirds. Notables among the latter include B-17 Liberator “Sentimental Journey” and B-25 Mitchell “Maid in the Shade.”

The fair continues today until 4. Check out for tickets, schedule and parking info.
