Indy Air Expo ready for takeoff

GREENFIELD, Ind- The Indy Air Expo is set to take over the Indianapolis Regional Airport September 17-18.

The kicks off both days at eight in the morning and runs until five in the evening.

You can step inside a historic WWII bomber plane.

A car show is part of the two-day event.

There's also opportunities for people to learn to fly.

You can even take a ride in a stunt plane.

It's an experience one pilot compared to riding in a race car at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

"The difference is that this aircraft, when you’re pitching and rolling you’re going to experience gravitational forces that far exceed what you’re going to have on the race track," said Ryan Maxfield, an Indianapolis-based stunt pilot.

All of the proceeds from the Indy Air Expo go to support the Shriners Hospital for Children.

Each hospital in the Shriners network provides care for children dealing with cleft lip or palate, orthopedic conditions, or spinal cord injuries regardless of a family's ability to pay.
