The Lowcountry Regional Airport hosted their annual Wings and Wheels air and antique automobile show Saturday 18-April. Despite early morning rain and overcast skies, the event was attended by several thousand spectators. The crowds were treated to vintage aircraft, para-troopers, vintage, modern and experimental aircraft and an antique car show. Stations 19, 27 and LifeNet 4 covered the event with a static display of apparatus and the medical helicopter that were positioned near the runway in the event they were needed.
