Planned Lectures and Events:
To be announced
A model plane flying competition was held on Saturday. A simple model kit was provided free of charge to all interested model builders upon arrival at the Show Reception Desk. All we had to do was to put the model together before Sunday morning and then participate in the various events of the flying competition, e.g., straight flight, curves, accuracy etc. A prize was presented to the winner.
The Museum currently has over 80 aircraft and dozens of space artifacts on display including the Space Shuttle "Enterprise"; an SR-71 Blackbird reconnaissance aircraft; the Dash 80 prototype of the Boeing 707; the B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay;" and the de Havilland Chipmunk aerobatic plane, to name a few. The Space Shuttle will soon undergo restoration inside the Space Hangar where it now resides.
Visitors can walk among artifacts on the floor and view hanging aircraft from elevated walkways (skyways). Many engines, rockets, satellites, helicopters, airliners, ultra-lights, and experimental flying machines are all on display for the first time in a museum setting.
