CINCINNATI (FOX19) - Lunken Airport Days begin this weekend both Saturday and Sunday.

The ramp will be open to the public with airplanes on display, lectures, an aviation book sale, flight simulators and World War II re-enactments. There will also be a talk to the pilots.

They will also have a B-17 "Aluminum Overcast," one of only 12 that still fly today.

The event is free but some activities cost money. Airplane and helicopter rides are $40 each. Veteran's breakfast in the World War II mess area from 8 am to 10 am is $5 each. All proceeds from the breakfast go to Honor Flight, which is trying to fly World War II veterans to the World War II memorial.

Free hot dogs and drinks will be provided. Parking on Airport Road and at 262 Wilmer are also free.
