Additionally, the Historical Aircraft Squadron, Inc. from Lancaster will also be offering airplane rides, giving aviation enthusiasts a chance to experience history in the most immersive way possible.

Living History and Military Might

More Than Just an Event, It’s a Celebration

The event will feature a covered outdoor eating area and has the capacity to park up to 50 planes at a time on the ramp. To set the mood, German music will be playing throughout the venue, and you might even catch a few people dressed in traditional German outfits. With free admission, great food, and a sky full of opportunities, the Oktoberfest Fly-In at Union County Airport is a day-long celebration you won’t want to miss.
