Hundreds attend Trenton Flyers “Candy Drop”
Exclusive: See video of one of
the candy drops here.
posted November 3, 2008
TRENTON – The
Trenton Flyers held their
annual “Candy Drop” on Saturday with over two hundred people showing
up, some in costume. “This is definitely the largest crowd we’ve ever
had,” Johnny Anderson said. The Trenton Flyers, a group of flying
enthusiasts, sponsors the yearly event. “Its one of the ways we give
back to the community,” Anderson said. Local children were more
than happy to receive what the group was giving back, lots of candy.
Gerald Ballard, one of the pilots and owner of Ballard Trucks and Tires
in Augusta, donated $200 worth of candy towards the annual flyover.
“This is a great event and we’re just happy to be a part of it,”
Prior to the candy drop the Trenton Flyers had over a dozen standard
and experimental aircraft on display and several pilots stood by to
explain the aircraft and the joy of flying to parents and children.
Trenton Flyer’s Vice President Dave Gardner, Gerald
Ballard, and David Moore, flew over the taxiway and let the candy fall.
The pilots made several passes during the afternoon with the parents
and children gathered near a hanger awaiting the next pass and then
racing out to pick up the goodies (left).
Mr. Anderson said the Trenton Flyers are always looking for ways to
promote the airfield and increase the public’s awareness of the county
owned facility and what it has to offer. Earlier this
month they flew
County Council Chairman Monroe Kneece and council-elect members Rodney
Ashcraft and Genia Blackwell around the county.
Spotted at the candy
drop was county council district 1 candidate Trace

his wife Debra (center).
