Fantasy of Flight closing Sunday

WHAT: Fantasy of Flight, an aviation-themed attraction in Polk County, is closing its doors to the public as of Sunday. It has showcased owner Kermit Week's collection of vintage aircraft for more than 18 years. Fantasy of Flight now will concentrate on its private-events business, but Weeks says he has a vision for an improved attraction eventually. "Think of this as a caterpillar going into its cocoon," he said when announcing the closure in March. "We expect to re-emerge as a brand-new butterfly."

WHERE: 1400 Broadway Blvd SE, Polk City

COST: $29.95 ($15.95 for ages 6-12)

CALL: 863-984-3500
