ONTARIO - Aircraft lifted off from runways and static displays of planes lined the tarmac while good-sized crowd filtered through the Ontario Municipal Airport Saturday during a Fly-In celebration.

The event showcased different airplanes - and at least one helicopter - and pilots from across the region. The event was designed to raise awareness of the airport and give area residents a chance to get out and enjoy some sun and see an array of aircraft.
