“Cascade Warbirds” on view in Museum parking lot
SEATTLE – The Museum of Flight hosts the annual Cascade Warbirds Fly-in of vintage military airplanes on Saturday, May 28. A wide variety of restored planes representing several nations’ armed forces from World War II through the Vietnam conflict will be on view in the Museum parking lot 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The pilot/owners of the planes will be on hand to answer questions and share their enthusiasm for these vintage warbirds. The aircraft will arrive between 8 and 9 a.m. Viewing the planes is free. A World War II B-17 bomber will also be based at the Museum May 25-30 for rides and ground tours.
Operating under the motto “keep ’em flying,” the Puget Sound-based Cascade Warbirds work to preserve history by maintaining important military aircraft. The group is the Experimental Aircraft Association’s Warbird Squadron 2. Planes scheduled to participate in the fly-in include a North American T-28 Trojan, de Havilland DHC-1 Chipmunk, Cessna O-2 Skymaster and a Douglas AD-4 Skyraider.
