Spirit reporter Larry McGuire enjoyed this view while flying above Punxsutawney with pilot Captain Rick Young of the Punxsutawney Airport Authority. Young presented McGuire with a peek at what is happening at Airport Awareness Day at the airport this Saturday.

Young said the fun runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with airplane rides costing $25 per person. You can get a view of Punxsutawney from the air, just like the photo accompanying this article.

Young pointed out the highlights of Airport Awareness Day: On display will be a STAT MedEvac helicopter, vintage aircraft, a military helicopter display, aircraft static displays and a drone. Food and beverages will be available for purchase, in addition to flight instruction — learn to fly. Proceeds benefit the airport improvement fund. The rain date for the event is this Sunday, Aug. 18.
