The Bandit Flight Team will be flying for the flag over Downtown Hendersonville this Labor Day in an aerial salute to America.
Six planes will fly in formation above Main Street. Their first pass will begin at the Triangle Stop on the north end of Main and travel south toward the historic Henderson County Courthouse. A second pass will travel in the opposite direction complete with a ‘bomb burst’ maneuver over the city followed by a circling of downtown.
“The Bandit Flight Team is excited to provide an Apple Festival Parade from the sky,” said Jim Kilpatrick, Team Leader with the Bandit Flight Team. “We were scheduled to fly over the parade but when it was cancelled, we offered to provide our own sky parade. My wife and I are both Hendersonville High graduates and understand and appreciate the importance of the Apple Festival.
