Mr Lee was in attendance on Saturday morning for the ceremony and is shown here accepting a U.S. flag from Congressman Gregg Harper.
The local airport has undergone major renovation, construction and repair over the last two years. The terminal dedication and the appearance of an assortment of vintage WWII aircraft was a celebration of these improvements.
On Friday, September 26, local media had the opportunity to fly in one of these vintage planes along with Mr. Pruitt Lee. The 30 minute flight in a PBJ (the Navy's version of a B-25 bomber) brought back memories for the former pilot who took the opportunity to detail his flight that resulted in a crash and his serious injury. The video below is roughly 5 minutes in length.
