DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Many people came out to Dubuque's Regional Airport open house. 

It's an annual event where the public can see and learn about different types of helicopters and airplanes.

There were old model planes like from the 40's...to modern era planes.

Many people went for rides in the aircrafts.

One of them was the gyroplane, which is similar to the helicopter. 

"What is this thing?  Well it's something kinda new in  the way it looks, but it's not really new technology.  The second thing is when  someone  flies in it they  just can't believe it's that maneuverable." said pilot Chris Lord.

Organizers say about 1,000 people came out to the event. 

They were also served breakfast.
