CHESTERFIELD, Mo. — Come fly with them, they sing, fly, fly away.
At long last, seasonal temperatures feel like seasonal temperatures, and along with them comes the annual Spirit of St. Louis Air Show in west St. Louis County. Beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, sightseers can indulge in the air show at Spirit of St. Louis Airport, starting with the opening ceremony at 11:30 a.m.

Before the air show concludes either day at 5 p.m., interested event-goers can learn how to obtain their pilot's license at an EAA Aviation Theater class from 4 to 4:30 p.m.
