WILLOUGHBY -- The sequester has forced the cancellation of many air shows, including the annual show at Burke Lakefront Airport. But one show at Lost Nation airport went on as planned.

People came out this weekend to the Lost Nation Airport to catch the Gathering of Eagles Air Show.

For an 87-year-old woman, the event was a dream come true.

Sylvia Piper was a 'Rosie the Riveter.' She helped make some of the B-24's that flew over Germany in World War II.

She was shaking with excitement because she finally got a chance to fly in a very similar plane today.
