KALAMAZOO, Mich. - The Air Zoo is honoring those who have served and those who continue to serve our country with a variety of special activities and offers on Veterans Day.
The Air Zoo will offer free general admission to veterans, active military, Guard and Reserve members, and their immediate families* on Nov. 11. Proof of military service is required.
In honor of Veterans Day, the Air Zoo will also feature three open cockpit aircraft-the SPAD VII, North American B-25 Mitchell and North American T-28 Trojan, a walking tour of military aircraft throughout the history of war, and a scavenger hunt for kids. Marc Liebman, author of "BIG MOTHER 40," will also hold a book signing from noon-5 p.m.
