The Auburn Air Show called Thunder in the Sky runs all day tomorrow (Saturday)  for the public to have a rare opportunity to see up close the war birds of world war  II.  Event Organizer Tim O’Brien says these planes are an important part of history , and like most antiques are increasing in value.

O’Brien says besides being rare,  the war birds  are also  increasingly expensive to operate. The beefy engines can burn 60 gallons of fuel an hour.
