Tupelo Airport holds 'Kids Day'
By Drew Powell

Though the friendly skies were not overpopulated with kids, "Kids Day at the
Airport" allowed children to tour parts of the Tupelo Regional Airport as
part of Air Day.
Just after 9 a.m., kids of all ages and their parents were able to tour
planes and buildings at Tupelo Aviation Unlimited.
The purpose behind Air Day is to show the general public what jobs are at
the airport and what role safety plays in the world of aviation.
"A great learning opportunity today at the airport," says Kayla Goodrich,
parent. "The kids got to tour the airbus and see different airplanes on
display as well as the firetruck. They had a great day."
"Learn about aviation see what we do at the airport and have a good time,"
adds Josh Abramson, Executive Director of Tupelo Regional Airport. "You know
and it's something that we're going to start to do every year. So were going
to kick this off. This will be the first annual kids day at the airport."
The inaugural kids day was free to the general public and each kid received
a gift bag containing treats and a kit to make a toy airplane.
