Kids get 'wheel life experiences' in Luzerne County

Children in Luzerne County got a first-hand look at all different types of emergency vehicles at an event Saturday at the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport

LUZERNE COUNTY, Pa. — The airport hosted the free event called 'Wheel Life Experiences' to give kids a chance to get up close and personal with planes and other airport vehicles.

Children were able to go inside some of the vehicles and learn all about them, as well as see and talk to the men and women who work with them.

"Children are the future, and let the children see it. They're in the back of mom and dad's cars or maybe their grandparents, and they're seeing all these different types of equipment out there while they're looking out the window of their vehicles. Now they can come up, and they can be up close and personal with them," said Eric Mckitish, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport.

This was the second year for the 'Wheel Life Experiences' event at the airport in Luzerne County.
