Aviation Day

Bargain-priced plane rides drew a large crowd yesterday to the Tilford Flying Service at Palm Beach International Airport to help celebrate National Aviation Day. Visitors such as Danny Selby, 9, of Lake Worth, were weighed in and charged two cents a pound for their rides. Below, Mark Miele, 8, Brian Ball, 11, and Greg Miele, 11, all of West Palm Beach, used the occasion for their first plane trip.

Landlovers could skip the rides, however, and still get their thrills by looking at various vintage and modern planes and helicopters on display on the ground. Proceeds from the plane rides will be donated to ‘Wings of Hope,’ a charity that furnishes planes to remote and distressed areas of the world.
