RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Santa Claus and more than a dozen airplanes landed at Reno-Tahoe International Airport Saturday morning with gifts to benefit clients of the Children’s Cabinet.

The Reno-Tahoe Aviation Group created Operation Santa Claus. Families greeted the pilots and Santa Claus when they landed. There were single- and twin-engined planes and Santa arrived in a Nevada Air National Guard C-130.

An Atlantic Aviation hangar was decorated as a winter wonderland.

The Damonte Ranch High School Choir performed.
