JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Automotive enthusiasts have plenty of cruise-ins and car shows to choose from on almost any given weekend along the First Coast.  But when it comes to mixing classic cars and aircraft - now that's more rare.

But that's actually what happened at Jacksonville Executive at Craig Airport Saturday. Wings 'N' Wheels was held, which celebrated aviation and automotive history.

Families wondered between helicopters, planes, muscle cars, exotics and vendors.  The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department was also on hand with displays and for 30 dollars, you could even snag an airplane ride.

Craig Airport has a rich history, including being able to lay claim to being the sign of the first Blue Angels performance on June 15, 1946.

Look for more coverage of the event Saturday evening on First Coast News on WJXX-ABC 25 and WTLV NBC 12.
