Unique planes from around the country arrive in Middletown for weekend event

Planes from around the country flew into Middletown Regional Airport on June 15 as part of the National Aeronca Association Fly-In.

The 19th Convention of the National Aeronca Association takes place June 15-17, when owners and enthusiasts of Aeronca aircrafts convene in Middletown.

From 1928 to 1951, the company was a major producer of general aviation aircraft, and also produced the engines for some of their early designs.

Aeronca is now a division of Magellan Aerospace, and produces aircraft, missile, and space vehicle components in Middletown.
