There is a magic to flight. And when it's an old airplane, all the better, for it carries people not just from here to there but across the decades. It's a chance to revisit the past when such machines were new. Maybe that's why each autumn, hundreds of people head to Hagerstown Regional Airport to do some time travel. Wings and Wheels Expo 2011 will be held Saturday, Oct. 15, and Sunday, Oct. 16, at the airport on Showalter Road. Sponsored by the Hagerstown Aviation Museum, the event will include rare and historic planes, vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles, flight demonstrations and living history displays.

charlestown@herald-mail.com MARTINSBURG, W.VA. - Sunday's Martinsburg Cruise-In was many things. It was a big car show, with 152 classic automobiles parked up and down Queen and King streets. It coincided with Father's Day, and also was held in honor of West Virginia Day. But perhaps the most important part of the event was promotion. The daylong event, which also included a rock 'n' roll band in the city's public square, was designed to get people downtown and, hopefully, get them to notice the beginnings of change.
