An estimated 13,000 pilots and aviation enthusiasts are expected to attend the 2010 Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association Aviation Summit, which includes public events at Long Beach Airport and downtown.

The summit will be a public display of more than 75 aircraft at Long Beach Airport from Thursday through Saturday, a fundraising barbecue and an aircraft auction to raise funds for flight-school scholarships.

Several thousand AOPA members are expected to fly into Long Beach Airport early this week in aircraft as diverse as World War II-era bombers to multimillion glass-cockpit jets.

A B-29 Superfortress, which was one of the largest military aircraft ever assembled and the airplane that was used to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki, will be on display. The B-29, known as "Fifi," is considered one of the last such planes to be in mint or near-mint condition.

The free three-day event at the airport will feature more than 70 aircraft on display - not to mention the hundreds of aircraft expected to fly in. Plus, attendees can enjoy performances by Flying Musicians Association artists each day, attend a presentation by aviation humorist Rod Machado, and stop by an autograph session with air show performer Sean D. Tucker.

Airportfest is open free to the public Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Complimentary transportation will be provided from the Long Beach Convention Center to Daugherty Field.
