Recently got this from the state Tourism Department. It’s about an interesting sounding event at Little Sahara State Park. Read on:
Fifteen thousand off-road sand enthusiasts are expected to flock to the Flight Path for Vintage War Birds Fly-Over. The fly-over event is taking place to honor the 250,000 motorized recreational tourists who travel to Woods County each year.
More than 75 percent of these sand enthusiasts travel up to 1,000 miles across country to enjoy the dunes at the Little Sahara State Park each year during “Snake Hunt” week.
At 5 p.m. April 10, the fly-over event will commence in Waynoka in a joint effort between Dan Delasantos of the Tek-One Corporation; Classic Communications; Bob Baker, aircraft owner and pilot; and Reed Helicopters.
Helicopter and off-road services will be on hand to transport media into the park. Classic Communications will broadcast the event throughout northwest Oklahoma via live radio remote beginning at 3 p.m. Thousands of recreationists and their vehicles will line the tops of the many towering sand dunes along the flight path in anticipation for the fly-over. Reed Helicopters will be on hand providing park guests the opportunity to explore the 1,500-acre sand dune park from the air.
Receiving the highest volume of motorized recreational traffic in the state, the Little Sahara State Park supports more than 250,000 guests annually.
