    The last show ever for Community Arts Theater Society (CATS) is fittingly one it has never done before, presented by an amazing cast.

    Other aircraft flying in for the show may include a Douglas C-47, a military transport during the war adapted from the commercial favorite DC-3. Take to the skies yourself with helicopter and biplane rides aboard vintage aircraft, or just check out the full motion simulator.
