The Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation's North American B-25J “Panchito”

The Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation (DAMF), will be offering flight experience rides (maximum of four flights only) in our North American B-25 medium bomber like the ones used by the Doolittle Raiders. Experience flight from several different positions on the aircraft: behind the pilots, the bombardier's position in the nose, below the top gun turret, waist and tail gunners' positions.

This is a rare opportunity to fly on one of the few remaining B-25s, and get a real sense of what it was like
for the brave men who flew these aircraft in WWII combat.

The price is $425 per person at this special event. Make your reservations early by calling (443) 458-8926.
Panchito's appearance at this event is sponsored in part by Mountain View Solar.

Wings and Wheels Expo is The Only Gathering of
Vintage Aircraft and Classic Vehicles Anywhere
in the Cumberland Valley Region

                            Best of All, This Event is Open to the Public With Free-Entry!
                                       (Donations to the Hagerstown Aviation Museum Are Welcome)

We welcome your visit at the upcoming Wings & Wheels Expo at the Hagerstown (MD) Regional Airport – and your tax-deductible financial support to our 501(C)(3) organization.

Over the past several years, the Hagerstown Aviation Museum has acquired and had donated 20 classic aircraft, most built at the sprawling Fairchild Aircraft facility in Hagerstown, MD – and obtained through the generous support of the community.

Our past Wings and Wheels Expo events (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017!), each provided an affordable venue for a fun and educational family weekend event, and in the process generated many donations and contributions from the community toward our goal of making the dream of a permanent home a reality. (2015's event was rained out).

Not having a building large enough to showcase and display these historic aircraft, the Museum for years has held many events for the public to view and even walk through these planes – in many cases, allowing anyone the opportunity to trace back over the footsteps of their fathers, grandfathers, mothers and grandmothers who served our Country. 

YOU can help us – Simply attend, enjoy, make a donation, and help the Museum achieve it's goal 
of obtaining that 'final landing' spot (in Hagerstown!), as a lasting Legacy for these vintage Fairchild aircraft

Your Attendance and Generous Donations Help Continue our Preservation and Educational Efforts!

What is the Hagerstown Aviation Museum?
Our mission is to help foster the development and construction of a permanent facility for the Hagerstown Aviation Museum and the group's growing collection of vintage Hagerstown, MD manufactured Fairchild aircraft – which span nearly NINE decades of history!
