Inclement Weather

Note: The event is proceeding as planned.

In the event of inclement weather, Innovations in Flight will need to be cancelled. Please note that many historical aircraft are unable to fly in unpredictable severe weather conditions, and that some of our pilots are coming from significant distances in the hopes of seeing you. If there is inclement weather, it may not be possible for the aircraft to reach the Museum, and the event will be cancelled.

About the Event

Explore the engineering and design innovations that have taken place during the last century of flight. Talk with pilots of vintage and modern aircraft, on display outside the Museum for one day only. This year’s event will only take place outside, with no indoor programming. Visitors are welcome to explore the inside of the Museum on their own.
