    Three event highlights
    1 The Geneseo Air Show never fails to delight and wow aviation and history buffs alike. This year, the tentative flight schedule includes the crowd-pleasing B-17 Movie Memphis Belle, plus acts from the Liberty Jump Team, WWI Great Flying Museum and aerobatic master Rob Holland.
    2 Besides flights, ground events include an up-close view of historic planes, plus tours of some of the larger historic aircraft (at a fee), plus see a WW2 reenactment camp.
    3 The airshow is sponsored by the Geneseo-based 1941 Historical Aircraft Group. Its museum is open year-round for tours, and conducts other events. For more information on the group, go to 1941hag.org or call 585-243-2100.
    Why you should attend
    “We’re the only airshow in western New York this year. We’re one of a very few airshows that is devoted to War II warbirds, and we’re an inexpensive family-friendly event with free parking, free admission for children under 12, and visitors are welcome to bring their own coolers, food, and even lawn chairs.” — Cherie Bevona, air show public relations
