LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There's another chance to see pieces of history on Saturday.

The annual "Spirit of 45" event is taking place at Bowman Field.

Military equipment and memorabilia from World War II will be on display. Visitors can also step inside a B-25 bomber, straight out of the 1940s.

Event organizers say they're ready to show everything off. "The greatest generation of what they had and how they got us to where we are today. It's very touching and heartwarming to me and it's great to have the chance to show this off to everyone," said event co-chair Wayne Hettinger.

The event is free to the public.

It begins at 10 a.m. in Hangar 6 at Bowman Field.
