A Hangar Dance at the Alexandria Airport Friday provided a salute to the 70th anniversary of D-Day, along with a night of dancing to the Big Band music of the 1940s.


Organized by the Red Willow Arts Coalition, the event featured Jazz.Combo, a band made up of young adults playing swing music from the 1940s and 1950s. Directed by former Alexandrian John Herdan, the group has previously been featured in the courthouse lawn series.
