Young Eagles flights were sponsored by the Bloomington Chapter EAA with Heritage in Flight hosting on Saturday at the Logan County Airport. Pilots flew about 25 youth for the day.

Below, Rick Kidd photographs the experience for one group of three siblings. The Steiner kids came from Illiopolis to be among the group of youngsters who took to the skies over Logan County.
