Hundreds attend Trenton Flyers “Candy Drop”


Exclusive: See video of one of the candy drops here.

 web 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,” Ballard said.

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.

Three pilots, 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 Faust (right) and council-elect district 2 Rodney Ashcraft (left) and his wife Debra (center).
