Join us for our Summer of Flight program on Saturday, June 1st, at 1:00 pm, as we commemorate the history of an unusual unit, the Normandie-Niemen Fighter Regiment! One of only three units from the Western Allies to see service against the Germans on the Eastern Front, these French pilots served as part of the Soviet Air Force during WWII.

Saturdays at 1pm from May to October, the Military Aviation Museum will be showcasing historical aircraft and commemorating important wartime events through narrated flying demonstrations.

Experience the rumble from the engine up close as you hear what it is like to fly these incredible aircraft, learn about the battles they participated in, and about the men and women who built, flew and maintained them during the war!

Summer of Flight is included in your general museum admission and free for museum members. Each event starts at 1:00 pm unless otherwise noted.

Flights, Aircraft and Topics subject to change. Due to inclement weather, dates may be rescheduled to a later date or canceled. All flights are weather and maintenance permitting.
