Saturday May 4th and Sunday May 5th promises to be a weekend full of fun! Join us for this unique event at Planes of Fame air Museum. "Wings, Tracks, and Wheels" brings together military vehicles, historical reenactors, live demonstrations and presentations, and aircraft flyovers for an event you'll long remember.

Here's a taste of what to expect at "Wings, Tracks, and Wheels:"

 

DOORS OPEN AT 9:00am

So much to see and do!

We’re converting the Museum grounds into a military encampment featuring aircraft, military vehicles, and Living Historian reenactors to create a salute to our military heritage. There will be plenty of food and drink and lot’s of activities for the entire family.

There will be flying demos of 10 of our aircraft, a demo of the V-1 Flying Bomb Pulse Jet Engine, an M4 Sherman Tank demonstration as well, Raffle Drawings for Museum Members for a flight, and attendees will have a chance to win a flight in one of our aircraft as well.

Here is the line-up for aircraft flying demonstrations for "Wings, Tracks, and Wheels."

 

In addition to the demonstration flights, there will be many military vehicles, encampments, aircraft rides, Tiny Tank battles, Youth Programs, Kid's Obstacle Course, Junior Modeler's Workshops, and hand's-on activities like the Junior Modeler's Scale Model Aircraft workshops and the "Learning to Rivet" experience.
