BERN TWP., Pa. -

Organizers are putting the finishing touches on the South Pacific Fly-in Clam Bake and Reading Air Show.

The inaugural event will take place Saturday at the Reading Regional Airport in Bern Twp., Berks Co.

There will be motorcycle stunts, a clam bake, a Polynesian barbecue, a custom car show and more than 200 planes.

Wing-walker Jane Wicker was scheduled to perform before her death at an air show in Ohio last month. Organizers said they're going forward with the show in her honor.

"It is a tight community, the aviation community, a tight community, but moreĀ  than losing our main act, we have people here who lost a dear friend, and so we will honor her memory by letting the show continue," said Dave Weidler, organizer.

Saturday's show runs from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m.
