Two popular events were combined into one Sunday in Howland.

This is the first annual Wings-n’-Wheels Fly-In-Cruise-In.

Just like the name suggests, it combines classic cars and airplanes.

Organizers said close to 3,000 people came to the airfield for an up close look.

The event doubled up as a fundraiser for the animal welfare league.

“There’s a veterinarian that has his office right at the front part of the runway and he asked me if I would be willing to donate to the animal welfare league and I thought it was a great idea having a bunch of animals myself; I think it’s a great thing to give to,” said Bill Griffin of Wings-n’-Wheels.

Griffin said it took a few months to plan the event.

Based on turnout, another such event is likely in the future.
