Eddie Green, shown here balancing atop a wing of a stunt plane piloted by veteran acrobatic flyer Bill Barber, thrilled a large crowd which gathered Sunday at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Ann Arbor Municipal Airport off S. State Road. Green, who performs several daring feats aloft and Barber, who has 28,000 hours of flight on his record, were two of dozens of airmen who appeared for the two-day marking of the establishment of the local airport in 1928. Aerial balloons, antique airplanes, a fly-in breakfast for arriving pilots and display of experimental aircraft were all part of the gala event. Art Nugent, control tower operator, said there were 575 landings and take-offs on Sunday and more than 20,000 persons visited the airport for the air show. (Staff photo by Robert Chase)

Being pushed along, it doesn't look like much. It will suffer the further indignity of being shipped by moving van all across the country. But then it will emerge winged and proud and ready for glory in Hollywood. It's one of eight World War I Bristol F2B British fighter planes built at the Ann Arbor airport by Ypsilantian Vern Ohmert (right) for the movie "High Road to China." Six of the eight planes fly, the other two don't and will appear as wrecked dogfight victims. Ohmert will do much of the flying himself.
