People trade toys for flights during the annual Fly for Tots: Thomaston-Upson County Airport (KOPN), Thomaston, Georgia

Airport Manager and Pilot Mitch Ellerbee (left) stands with Kenny Raybon and his sons Rilee and Jaxson following heir flight. Ellerbee said more than $2,500 in cash donations and more than 200 toys were donated during this year’s Fly for Tots.

Families turned out in flocks for the annual Fly for Tots last Saturday, hosted by the Thomaston-Upson Airport and the pilots that base their planes there. In exchange for a cash donation or a toy, which go to the Upson County Empty Stocking Fund, people had a chance to take a short flight around Upson County. A crowd waits outside the terminal for their flights.
