Fremont County Airport celebrates 60 years

It's a celebration that flies high over at the Fremont County Airport.

Hundreds gathered there today for the airport's 60th anniversary.

People from many different counties enjoyed air shows, helicopter rides, and even sky diving.

Enthusiasts of flying say they hope to gain the interest of a younger generation.

One 17-year-old, who already has his pilot's license at a very young age, wants to inspire others.

"Get out here, and get everyone else interested in flying because one of the best things I've noticed with flying is sharing that with somebody," said Jeff Runyan, a 17-year-old pilot.

They also had food and classic cars on display all morning to celebrate.
