Wings and Wheels Red Tails Traveling ExhibitWings and Wheels Red Tails Traveling Exhibit

Enjoy our monthly fly-in at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum, inside the original art-deco terminal building at Houston Hobby Airport! From 11 am to 3 pm we invite aircraft to stop by Hobby, enjoy the hospitality of our very GA-friendly airport, and park at the 'old terminal'. All year we are celebrating the 75th birthday of the original terminal building! This month we have a four-day buildup to Wings and Wheels: Enjoy the RISE ABOVE Traveling Exhibit from Tuesday, November 17 through Saturday, and learn the history and determination of the Tuskegee Airmen as presented by the CAF Red Tail Squadron! SPECIAL HOURS are 9 am to 5 pm for the exhibit, and admission is free for until November 20! The exhibit is a mobile big-screen theater presenting a short original movie, "RISE ABOVE", which focuses on the challenges these young men had to overcome to be allowed to fly and fight for their country in World War II. The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is proud to host this exhibit! Fly in and your plane becomes part of the display, as we make it possible for people to get up close to real planes and chat with real pilots - with a commercial airport as our backdrop. You may inspire someone to get their own wings! Any and all aircraft are welcome to our ramp (please contact us so we can expect you) where security-badged volunteers provide supervised access to the public. Just tell the nice folks on the radio you'd like to park at 'the old terminal' or 'the museum'. Hobby is a GA friendly airport, featuring Texas-sized hospitality! Special FREE ADMISSION this week. A local roving food vendor will be by around lunchtime. Our regular history presentation will start at 12:30. Any and every aircraft is welcome to join us. Join us at Hobby and see what flies in!
