Discover Aviation Days at Anoka County Airport

We don’t live far from the Anoka County Airport, and one of our favorite weekends to be outside is  in June when we get to see (and hear) B-52s buzz through the sky during Discover Aviation Days.

With just the 5 airplanes flying overhead, the clamor of the engines is extremely loud. We always stop and take a minute to think about Pearl Harbor and the commotion of the hundreds of planes flying overhead. In 2022, Anoka county Airport is offering a scaled-down preview to its revamped Discover Aviation Days (DAD) coming in 2023. Even scaled back, there will still be kids activities, exhibits and of course, planes.
