Creve Coeur Airport Displays WW1 Aircraft

St. Louis, MO –

A century ago, the Wright brothers took an historic trip in the world's first true aircraft. By World War I, the airplane had become a weapon of war. This weekend, pilots from around the country will land at Creve Coeur Airport in replicas of those early fighter planes. A group of local enthusiasts is hosting the event to teach today's generation about aviation's early wartime history. KWMU's Kevin Lavery reports.
