NAMPA, Idaho — The state's largest gathering of historic war planes wraps up today.

The Warbird Roundup is an annual tradition at the Warhawk Air Museum. The event offers visitors a chance to meet the pilots and get up close to some of the rarest World War II era fighter planes in existence.

Sue Paul, the co-founder of the Warhawk Air Museum says, “The thrill the folks have when they come here and see these rare airplanes is number one what they sound like. You can imagine being in a foxhole in world war II and you’re being shot at and you have planes like this fly right over your head believe me you’re in love and that love affair has never gone away with American public, with our Air Force our marine core with the pilots of our country.”

There were also plenty of guest speakers, food, drinks and kids activities.
