A Couple of Exciting Events Coming Up for VAFM

A couple of exciting upcoming events for the museum are on Saturday, October 17 2009 and Saturday November 21, 2009.

On Saturday October 17, our 7/8 scale British SE5a will be flying over the park in Hudson and make a candy drop for the kids! This will happen around 4pm (weather permitting). On a special note, our SE5a was the only non-CGI (computer generated image) to actually fly in the movie, "The Aviator"!

On November 21, we are joining forces with the Adams County Sheriff's Department and Rocky's Autos for OPERATION FREE BIRD! Many of the museum's aircraft will be performing fly-overs and the event itself will have several special features including:

* $10 gift cards towards the purchase of a Thanksgiving turkey
* Free presentations and sample products
* Career and life skills information
* Free food and entertainment
