Tornado Won't Stop Inaugural Paulding Air Show
It’s been seven months since a powerful tornado ripped through Northwest Georgia.
Paulding County was the hardest-hit, where more than 160 homes were damaged or destroyed.
The storm also caused millions of dollars of damage to the county’s new airport, leaving some questioned whether its inaugural air show, scheduled for this month, would go forward.
Recently, WABE's Jim Burress sat down with “Salute America 2012 Air Show” committee members Darren Callahan and Kerry Tidmore. He began by asking if it ever got to the point where air show leaders thought they’d have to scrap their plans.
