All About Soaring From 10AM To 2PM For Second Saturday
On Second Saturday October 13, the Western Antique Aeroplane & Automobile Museum will have several of its antique gliders out soaring for visitors to see and enjoy. Come learn all about the local gliding community and what makes Hood River such an awesome place to go flying.
A not-to-miss flying exhibit on this day is one of WAAAM’s World War II training gliders. WAAAM’s training gliders were recently invited to attend the largest aviation gathering in the U.S. to help celebrate a little-known part of WWII and even won two awards for quality restoration. They are all back on display at the museum.
In addition to the flying, WAAAM’s antique automobiles will be out and about from 10AM to 2PM giving rides to visitors who attend the event.
Open 9-5 daily, the Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum collects, restores, preserves and exhibits airplanes from the Dawn of Flight through the Golden Age of Flight and historically significant cars and trucks emphasizing the first half of the 20th century. Located on the Hood River Airport at 1600 Air Museum Road. General admission is $16. Admission discounts for 65+ and veterans are $14, kids between 5 and 18 are $7 and anyone under 4 is free.
