Rides in these aircraft are available with advance tickets at CapitalWingWarbirdRides.org or on-site at the airport if unsold flights are available:
The Delaware Aviation Museum Foundation (DAMF) in Georgetown DE, will be offering flight experience rides (maximum of four flights only) in their 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 onboard one of the few remaining B-25s!
Its amazing production rate, its versatility, and its heavy use by several Allied countries during WWII all make the B-25 one of the most recognizable aircraft in the world!
It's a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience flight in one of these vintage warbirds. Cost is $425 per person during the 2019 Wings and Wheels Expo, September 7.
Make your reservations early: Call (443) 458-8926 to hold your seat!
Many of our Vietnam Era veterans will recall the many interesting (and more forgetful!) memories of riding in C-123s during that conflict (at upper left, in the photo gallery below).
At Wings and Wheels, you can view and walk-through this rugged and notable plane, today owned by our friends at The Air Heritage Museum in Beaver Falls, PA.
Alas y Ruedas Expo
Hagerstown Aeropuerto Regional
Wings and Wheels Expo is The Only Gathering of
Vintage Aircraft and Classic Vehicles Anywhere in the Cumberland Valley Region
We feature a large display of Fairchild aircraft built in Hagerstown at every Wings and Wheels Expo.
But unlike many air shows, we also toss in warbirds, modern leisure aircraft, classic cars, trucks, RC model airplanes, an airport open house, rides, live music and food!
Again this year the museum will also display its original fuselage of a RARE 1919 Bellanca CE aircraft – one of the very first airplanes and built right here in Hagerstown.
In addition an Open House by The Hagerstown Regional Airport will include displays from airport businesses, airport maintenance, firefighting equipment, exhibits, and private aircraft displays.
There's a lot to see and do. The question is:
Can you experience it all in just seven hours in one day?
Many of the aircraft present will be on display and open to the public.

Our Wings and Wheels Expo will also be the 2nd public display of our latest collection acquisition.
This rare and hard-to-find early 1930's Fairchild open cockpit sportster airplane was acquired by the Hagerstown Aviation Museum in June of 2019.
With only minimal work required upon purchase, this visually stunning airplane will be presented to the general public again this year.
Can you guess what model our most recent Fairchild airplane may be?
Museum merchandise, books, DVDs, shirts, hats and toys will be for sale during Wings and Wheels Expo.
