the Cumberland Valley!
Free Admission – Donations Welcome
Breakfast and Lunch Available Proceeds Benefit the Hagerstown Aviation Museum
and Other Local Non-Profits
From 8:00 AM until 4:00 PM
Sunday September 22, 2013 Over the past seven years, the Hagerstown Aviation Museum has had donated more than 15 classic aircraft, most built at the sprawling Fairchild Aircraft facility in Hagerstown, MD – and acquired through the generous support of the community.
Our past Wings and Wheels Expo held in 2011 and 2012 provided an affordable venue for a fun and educational family weekend event, and in the process generated many donations and contributions from the community toward our goal of making the dream of a permanent home a reality!
We welcome your visit at the upcoming Wings & Wheels Expo 2013 on September 23, 2013 at the Hagerstown (MD) Regional Airport – and your tax-deductible financial support to our 501(C)(3) organization.
Not having a building large enough to showcase and display these historic aircraft, the Museum for years has held many events for the public to view and even walk through these planes – in many cases, allowing anyone the opportunity to trace back over the footsteps of their fathers, grandfathers, mothers and grandmothers who served our Country.
Your attendance and generous donations help us continue our preservation and educational efforts!
Come Visit Our Planes Before September
