New Lake County Airshow "Keep(s) 'em Flying"

(WILLOUGHBY) - After a two-year absence, Lake County's Lost Nation Airport welcomed back it's Airshow this weekend.

Renamed the "Lake County Air Show", this year's event features aerobatic performers, warbird flybys, static displays, and local helicopter MedEvac teams along with a few other surprises.

Internationally-known and award-winning pilot Julie Clark will perform her aerial ballet, choreographed to Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the USA" that builds to a dazzling fireworks finale.

Cincinnati's "Redline Airshows" aerobatic team will thrill crowds with a display of skill, nerve and showmanship.

The Airshow also features many classic and historical aircraft including a Douglas DC-4 used during the Berlin Airlift of 1948-49 and a WWII era Grumman TBM 3E "Avenger". 

The highlight may be "Georgie's Gal", a North American TB-25N Mitchell, one of the 16 B-25 bomber's that launched from the USS Hornet and used in the famous Doolittle Raid on Tokyo on April 18, 1942. 

"Georgie's Gal" is one of only three of the B-25 bombers still known to exist, and the only one still capable of flight.

The Lake County Airshow runs through 4pm Sunday.  Tickets can be purchased at the Lost Nation Airport or online at
