Spruce Creek Wings & WheelsSPRUCE CREEK, FL - Spruce Creek's most awaited event of the year, The ever popular Wings & Wheels Flying and Static Displays show will be held this Saturday March 28th. A large turnout of residents and friends and family are expected to meet at the famous "Tree" located in Windsock Park at the Spruce Creek Fly-in Community.

This year's attendance is expected to be a historical record. At the last Wings and Wheels, several thousand people were regaled with a fabulous display of formation flying along with static displays of aircraft, cars and motorcycles.

This year's event will include performances by the Spruce Creek Gaggle Flight and the Mavericks flight teams. In addition there will be a large static display of aircraft, many from WWII vintage, as well as collector cars and motorcycles. The all-volunteer event is planned and organized by the residents of the Spruce Creek Fly-In Community in Port Orange, Florida.

The Spruce Creek Fly-in Community is the world's most famous residential airpark. With a 4,000 ft lighted runway and a GPS approach, the private airport at the center of the community (7FL6) can accommodate anything from a Stearman to a Gulfstream. Originally a navy airfield during WWII, it evolved into the world's largest residential fly-in community. Today, almost 5,000 residents, 1,300 homes and 700 hangars share a unique life in this private gated village.

A championship golf course and Country Club and 24-hr patrolled security complements the safety, privacy and enjoyment of the residents. John Travolta and many other celebrities have enjoyed the Spruce Creek Fly-In lifestyle and privacy. The first thing a visitor sees after driving through the security gates is a sign that summarizes the spirit of this community: “Caution children and adults at play”.
