Fans flock to see Jets Over the Valley


NORTH JACKSON, Ohio (WKBN) — The skies over North Jackson were buzzing last weekend.

Jets Over the Valley held its annual radio-controlled show. Since Friday, enthusiasts gathered to both fly and admire the miniature aircraft.

It wasn’t all about the planes, as theevent centered on back to the men and women who make such activities possible.

“I have a grandfather who was in World War II. And these warriors, they go over and they help us with all these beautiful freedoms we have to be able to enjoy a hobby like this,” said Joe Lewis of Jets Over the Valley.

Lewis said proceeds from the weekend go to the Wounded Warrior Project.

The national organization provides aid and programs for men and women who are injured in combat.
