The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum hosted members of Rust is NOT a Crime (http://rustisnotacrime.com) and the Rival House Garage (http://rivalhousegarage.com) for a Halloween party at historic Curtiss-Wright Hangar 2 today. A variety of cars were featured, and Safe Kids car seats were available for those families needing this important safety device. The clubs raised money for several charities, including the museum, and enjoyed a sunny but chilly day at the museum. Member Dave Corbitt posted on Facebook: “I guess a special thanks is due to the St.Louis Air and Space Museum. Be sure to spread the word to you friend to support this volunteer run organization. They are good people and deserve our help in passing the word along.” Thanks Dave!
Here are some photos of today’s event:
The Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum and EAA Chapter 64 held its Fall Fly-In Saturday, offering a new way to experience aviation history – flights in a 1941 Waco and a T-6 Texan warbird. The event was held Saturday near historic Curtiss-Wright Hangars 1 and 2, with the museum and EAA aircraft on display. Other organizations, such as IPMA, SWIC, Wicks Aircraft Supply, St. Louis Flight Training and the Lions Club were represented and provided information about their services to the community. The most dramatic impact on the visitors, the aircraft flying overhead, was an added bonus this year. The museum is proud to include Kevin Kegin’s Waco UPF-7 (http://kevinkeginamericanwarbird.com/) and Greg Vallero’s AT-6F Texan (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Warbird-Rides-USA/180169395331362?v=info) in it’s activities on a regular basis. We encourage you to visit the museum during regular open hours of Friday-Sunday, 10:00am to 4:00pm, and contact Kevin and Greg for your flight in these beautifully restored 1940s era aircraft.
