Visiting Historic Aircraft

Rare Aircraft Visit the Museum Annually

Although our collection is not as large as we would like, we are very fortunate to be able to host many very rare aircraft each year. Typically we such aircraft will visit the Museum 3 to 4 times a year.

In 2005 we hosted the MATS Lockheed Constellation, the world's only flying B-29 FiFi and the oldest remaining B-24 Liberator Diamond Li. We also were fortunate to have had the Berlin Airlift C-54 visit on two occasions.

These are usually great events to some and meet real people who flew these aircraft in combat (here Sam Parks, one of our members and a B-29 pilot from WWII flies the B-29 FiFi on its way to the Museum from Tri-Cities Airport in Tennessee. If possible, we will schedule a weekend event to coincide with the visit of such aircraft. Sometimes visiting aircraft will also offer a limited number of airplane rides. These are typically 30 minute site seeing flights around Charlotte.

Although we try to advertise these events as far in the future as possible, some visits are arranged on short notice, so be sure to check back and see what has been posted on our web site or on our Yahoo! Newsgroup. (Note sometimes these visiting aircraft charge an additional admission fee to cover their costs).
