BRIDGEWATER, Va. (WHSV) — Dynamic Aviation marked a half a century of serving people in the Shenandoah Valley with a community celebration on Saturday.
Hundreds of people from a variety of age groups came to the company's Bridgewater facility for aircraft flights, displays on aviation history and music.
Visitors also lined up to get a look inside the very first Air Force One.
"It's been wonderful. People here have been very helpful," said Max Tahir, from Harrisonburg.
A refurbished DC-3 aircraft, known as 'Miss Virginia, was also on display. It was dedicated the night before to Maddie Shinaberry, a friend of the Dynamic Aviation family who passed away in 2016 after receiving a double lung transplant.
A portion of proceeds from the event will go to the Children's Miracle Network in Maddie's name.
Since its incorporation in 1967, Dynamic Aviation has built a client list that includes state and local governments, military intelligence and national defense agencies.
