The Capital Airshow wrapped up Sunday evening. Throughout the day, crowds lined the runway to watch the final planes taking off and landing. Besides watching and touring the planes and jets, children had a chance to actually paint one of the planes.
“I had a lot of fun doing it.” Said Jeremy Demure. The activity was organized by “Safe Launch.” The co-founder says the idea is for young people to paint their dreams. We’re gonna fly the plane away with their dreams on it and launch their dreams safely, hopefully as they will be launched also,” said Safe Launch co-founder Janet Rowse. Rowse says the hope is that children will learn the importance of living a healthy lifestyle early on.
After the painted plane flies, the organization will paint it white again bring it to air shows in different cities across the country.
