BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — The California Aeronautical University and Golden Age Flight Museum teamed up to conduct a flyover throughout Bakersfield Friday in honor of Flag Day.

The flyover took off at noon from Meadows Field Airport. The last stop in the flyover route WAS Panorama Park in northeast Bakersfield. The flyover is leading up to the annual Flag Ceremony on Monday at Greenlawn Cemetery.

The university sponsored the museum’s aircraft in the flyover, which includes a 1944 Convair BT-13 World War II aircraft trainer. The aircraft is considered a piece of history, as it was one of the most popular aircraft flown by American pilots during WWII.
