McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad commemorated 50 years of service Saturday, June 27, with an open house. Several hundred visitors toured the renovated airport facilities and the environmentally friendly terminal. As part of the event, various aircraft from sleek corporate jets to a Stearman biplane to emergency helicopters were also on display. Various business and civic organizations set up information booths.

In the photo, Curran Decking, a sixth generation resident of Carlsbad, and direct descendant of Gerald McClellan, for whom McClellan-Palomar Airport is named, points his toy airplane toward the sky while perched on a fire engine during the open house event.
