Step back in time this Labor Day weekend with Lunken Airport Days.

From 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Sept. 4 and 5, Lunken will be transformed with historic aircraft and displays. 

Check out military and civilian planes and vintage vehicles, take a ride in a helicopter or watch a color guard ceremony each day at noon. 

The Experimental Aircraft Association will also have its World War II B-25 Mitchell on site. The bomber is a "powerful twin engined and twin tailed aircraft...used by every branch of the United States military. It is the only US military aircraft to ever be named after an individual, air power advocate General Billy Mitchell."

The public can take flight in the B-25 at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m. Sept. 3-6. Flights cost $360-$400 and can be booked at flytheb25.org

Lunken Airport Days is hosted by the Cincinnati Warbirds, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving historic military aircraft, honoring veterans and active military, teaching the public about the military and its role in America's freedom and inspiring future generations.

Admission to the event is free and food trucks will be available.
