The annual open house at Jefferson City Memorial Airport was delayed this year due to unfinished renovations, but the runways finally reopened this week.
The open house was held Saturday, and people of all ages came out to celebrate. The Jefferson City chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association, which consists of pilots, aircraft builders and aviation enthusiasts, hosted the event and provided a pancake breakfast. A handful of pilots volunteered to help out with providing free flights to kids. For many of these kids, it was their first time flying.
