Here are a few highlights from B-17 Week:
- Thousands of area guests through the week appreciate our aviation heritage, and Colorado’s continuing leadership through our celebration of the 90th anniversary of the Colorado National Guard. We had a model of Exploration of Flight for visitors to enjoy.
- The Hangar Dance on Saturday was our best ever. Some 400 guests enjoyed food, music, dancing and gorgeous airplanes, including the Aluminum Overcast. A photo is attached. We also inducted our newest members of the Wingspan 100: Robb and Masako James; Bret, Tyler and Cathy Packard; and Kathy and August Geise.
- With the help of volunteers from the Jeppesen Flying Club and EAA Chapter 301, we flew 95 Young Eagles through the week.
- We also flew 12 Spreading Wings Teachers in our Stearman
