Tickets 1 for $25, 3 for $65. The raffle is Nov. 1st 2020.
Due to COVID all of the Museums of Flight's normal revenue streams have dried up. We are thinking outside the box by raffling off a donated 1990 Buick LaSabre with approx. 45,000 original miles, and waxed every 4 weeks. The interior is mind-blowingly pristine!

Help Keep Them Flying

The Museum of Flight is dedicated to raising awareness of aviation and the important role it has played in shaping our nation’s history. Not only do we provide displays, a vast collection of historic flight and military memorabilia and maintain these planes, the museum also donates to the local children’s hospital. The Museum of Flight has donated $25,000.00 dollars to the child life department and pediatric intensive care unit at Children’s Hospital. The museum is also involved with Toys for Tots, regular blood drives and will be found promoting aviation with flyovers and static displays at various events and air shows around the southeastern United States.

The museum was established in the spring of 2010 and we are still in our infancy. One of the best features of the museum is that we have planes that actually fly. The airplane collection currently includes a T-28 “Trojan” Alpha Model, a T-28 “Trojan” Bravo Model and a Beechcraft C-45. Vehicles include also a tug and a M38A-1 Jeep.

Helping out a great group of the Museum's Volunteers to put the T-34C back together after the big move. Back in the day I might have flown in this one.
Love it, thanks for the virtual tour!!!
Never has there been a better time to watch movies. Everything being closed down is pretty odd and has left many kids, including myself with nothing to do. Luckily, I found a cool website called Film Festival Flix that offers a wide variety of channels with films and documentaries. A film I really liked was “Boy” by director Taika Waititi. The film is about a child from New Zealand who finds his father after many years, but also sees that he is far from the heroic figure he imagined growing up. I believe the film was fantastic as it offered one of the more unique coming of age movies I have seen in a while. If you are interested in watching movies like this then I would highly suggest checking out the website!
