Rusk County (KRFI), Henderson, Texas: Airport to bring back air show

Rusk County has not had an air show in about 35 years, Rusk County Airport Manager Ron Franks told the Rusk County Commissioner’s Court in a special meeting Thursday morning. But it will on June 7 after commissioners gave Franks permission to solicit sponsors, enlist air show performers and to go ahead with other aspects of the event.

Franks told commissioners he attended an air show in Jasper a couple of weeks ago and got a lot of good ideas and a lot of good information from that trip. He said he will piggyback their efforts to try to bring an equally good show to Rusk County.
