Will we ever see the Band of Flight again land at the Farmpark?

Flying under the radar, Lake Metroparks is working to (again) secure the Dayton-based Air Force Band of Flight for an encore production of the summertime "America The Beautiful" concert.

The concert was held for several years at the Kirtland-based Farmpark and which drew thousands to the free musical program that was followed by a fireworks display.

However, the Air Force sailed away from its participation, not landing here for the past two years. That disappointed a lot of area residents who looked forward to the concert, which was co-hosted by The News-Herald.

Efforts are now underway to again secure the Band of Flight with Lake Metroparks having supplied the Air Force with a number of potential summer, 2011 dates.

An answer is expected, perhaps by Feburay, says the parks system's marketing manager, John Venen.
