Warplanes set to invade the Illinois Valley

Posted by wlpo on April 13, 2016

Dozens of historic warplanes will be flying into the Illinois Valley this Saturday for a historic reunion and salute to veterans.

More than half of the World War Two torpedo bombers known as TBM Avengers are reuniting this Saturday at the Illinois Valley Regional Airport. The all-day event will also give you the chance to see planes from World War Two through Vietnam.

Some of the planes will simulate torpedo runs and fly in formation as part of Saturday’s attraction. You can see all the planes for free and there’s no charge for parking.
Feel free to bring your camera.
