OBION COUNTY, Tenn. — As the final event to Union City’s Cornfest, planes from the 1930s took to the air. More than 2,000 people came to the first annual Great American Air Show at the Discovery Park of America. Organizers for the event say it’s a great opportunity to see planes from WWII and show what today’s veterans fought with when they were in the war. The planes soared through the air, testing daredevil heights while educating the crowd of what it’s like flying through the skies at such high speeds and how fighter pilots were trained during the 1940s. Veterans who attended said they loved watching history through the air and were proud to share in America’s history.
