Good Day Atlanta viewer information August 8, 2017

Peach Fest is taking place Sunday, August 13, 2017 at FlatIron City on Broad and Poplar Streets in Atlanta.  Chef Hector Santiago from El Super Pan joins us with a delicious peach inspired Chilean summer drink called Mote (wheat berries) con huesillo (dried peaches).  It is basically a peach tea garnish with wheat berries similar to a "Chilean bubble tea."   For more information on Peach Fest click here.


Museum Brings Back Atlanta Airport of the 1920s:   It's hard to believe, but once upon a time, the sky wasn't filled with jumbo jets and travelers didn't have to wait in long security lines.  And now, visiting the Atlanta Airport of the 1920s is possible, thanks to a unique museum just south of Metro Atlanta.

The Candler Field Museum is open Tuesdays through Sundays, and is located at the Peach State Aerodome in Williamson.  The museum recreates the Atlanta Airport of the 1920s-30s (originally called Candler Field, hence the name of the museum) with displays of vintage aircraft and cars, clothing, and other memorabilia.  In 2013, the museum created the Candler Field Youth Mentorship Program, with the goal of teaching young men and women to maintain the aircraft and inspire an interest in the field of aviation.  The program is open to young men and women aged 14 to 20, and requirements include one work day per week, or four days per month.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning going back in time at the Candler Field Museum, learning more about the history of aviation in Atlanta and meeting some of the young men and women prepared to carry on the tradition in the future.
