Independence Day Celebration Planned For Tullahoma

fireworks2July 4 may be three months away, but the Tullahoma Kiwanis Club is already planning its 45th annual Independence Day Celebration and fireworks show for the public at the Tullahoma Regional Airport.
In addition to fireworks, an aerial show will be staged by Keith Davis and his Pitts aerobatic airplane.
While the show is free, the club will be accepting any and all donations to help with the cost of providing the huge fireworks display.
In addition to hearing plans for the Kiwanis celebration, the Tullahoma Airport Authority was told as its meeting that two more events are scheduled for the future at the airport.
One being planned for later this month is a 30-man jump over Tullahoma to be staged by the airport-based Tennessee Sky Divers Club.
The event will attempt to set a state record in the number of people who will jump from two airplanes, link hands and free-fall for a distance, then let go and continue to parachute.
Charles Parish, speaking on behalf of the Beechcraft Museum, told the authority that this year’s annual Beech Party is set for Oct. 15- Oct. 19 at the museum. This year will be the 50th anniversary of the King Air planes.
