The first half of the evening’s entertainment will feature aerial displays from the museum’s collection of historical aircraft, such as the North American b-25J Mitchell and North American P-51D Mustang, accompanied by musical selections from popular aviation-themed movies.

The All American Air Show is a salute to our national heroes on June 16th from 1 p.m. till 5 p.m. Gates open at 12:00 p.m. as we celebrate the men and women who served this country.
