P-51D Flying Demo this Saturday
We’re hosting a “Flying Demo” of the North American P-51 “Mustang” this Saturday (April 3, 2021) beginning at 11:45am.
Doors to the Museum open at 10:00am for this outdoor presentation.
We’ll kick-off this family-fun event with a brief presentation about this superstar of World War II, followed by the roar of her 1500 hp engine starting-up. She’ll then taxi away, take-off and fly over the Museum for approximately 20 minutes, giving everyone plenty of opportunities to take pictures and enjoy the beauty of a true classic in the sky.
Guests are asked to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing. The flight of the Mustang can be seen from anywhere in the outside areas of the Museum campus.
More Saturday Fun!
All the Museum’s hangars are open for viewing. Guests can see the majority of the aircraft up-close and wander through many of the hangars while they learn about the collection and aviation history from our team of Museum Guides.
The Boeing B-17 will be open for visitors to enter and gain a unique perspective on the important role this aircraft played during World War II.
We’ve invited a team of “Living Historians” to join us on Saturday as well. They’ll be wearing the uniforms and displaying the equipment and gear of the typical soldier of the Second World War.
Plus we’ve got some pretty cool cars visiting us!
See Some Classic VeeDubs!
We’ve got a special treat in store on Saturday as nearly a dozen classic Volkswagen cars visit us to a photo session with the Museum’s Focke-Wulf Fw-190 “Wurger” fighter aircraft. The cars will be on display for viewing by Museum guests beginning at 10:30.
