Asheboro, NC-- The North Carolina Aviation Museum and Hall of Fame held its annual fly-in Saturday.
Visitors not only got to see planes decorate the skies, they also were treated to up close look at planes normally tucked away in the hangar.
The event is one of the museum's primary fundraisers. campaign That's because the Aviation Museum is not funded by the city, county, or state. Organizers depend on private money and donations.
According to Bob Coyle, one of the museum's Curators, there were between 100 and 150 planes from WWII and Korea that were on display.
The pride of the show was the Chance -Vought f4u-4 Corsair, which is also called the 'Whistling Death' because of the sound it made when on strafing runs.
