CAF Airbase Georgia Invites Public to March 16 Spring Open House

PEACHTREE CITY, GA. (Feb. 23, 2024) –Hangar doors will be open wide to welcome the public to the first open house of the year March 16 at Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Airbase Georgia in Peachtree City. The Airbase will honor the memory of Rosie the Riveter female workers who built the planes, ships, tanks and supplies that led to success during World War II.

Airbase Georgia is planning three open houses this year to mark the 80th Anniversary of D-Day.  The event is part of an initiative by partners of the Georgia WWII Heritage Trail to remember the successful invasion of Europe by Allied Forces in 1944. The first event will feature Rosie the Riveter re-enactors, guided tours, an events tent and a historical photo presentation and workshop. Aircraft rides will be available in several vintage WWII planes in the Airbase Georgia fleet, and the PX will be open with a variety of specially designed T-shirts, hats, patches and other items. The Airbase will operate its dog tag machine to provide unique souvenirs to visitors, and a food truck will offer food and refreshments.

“Our open house is designed for families and aviation fans alike who want to share in the rich history of ‘The Greatest Generation’ and get an up-close look at Airbase Georgia’s amazing fleet of restored World War II aircraft,” said Airbase Leader Joel Perkins. “Our next events will be in June and Nov. 11, which is Veterans Day.”
