The 21st Annual Open House, Fly In, and Car Show takes place Saturday at St. Louis Regional Airport in Bethalto. The event runs from 10am to 4pm and will feature aircraft and classic cars from the area and a large display of antique firearms. Admission and parking are free, with food and drink for sale on the grounds, or inside the airport restaurant.
St. Louis Regional Airport Director David Miller tells The Big Z you can expect to see a bevy of Cessna’s and Pipers, and a growing representation of hot rods and show cars.
