CROSSVILLE — Crossville Memorial Fly-In and Open House

Saturday, visitors to the Crossville Memorial Airport's 2012 Fly-In and Open House can see one of the last line of aircraft developed for the U.S. Navy, specifically designed for the role of dive bombing.

The Curtiss SB2C Helldiver, one of only three still intact, and the only one still in the air, will be on display. Make plans today, bring the whole family, and come out to the Crossville Memorial Airport, Whitson Field, and see the Helldiver, P-51 Mustangs, Steermans, helicopters and many other planes and jets, some in the air and others static on the runway. 

There is no admission to the Fly-In, with gates opening at 9 a.m.
