Wings and Wheels - Spring Stretch Your Wings Day, Houston, TX

Share on:

1940 Air Terminal Museum (KHOU), Houston, TX

Visit an art-deco gem and see great planes and cars at the monthly Wings and Wheels fly-in from 11 am to 3 pm! Stop by the 1940 Air Terminal Museum at William P. Hobby Airport in Houston, bringing aircraft and car enthusiasts together at Hobby's original terminal. It's Wings and Wheels - Spring Stretch Your Wings Day! We have invited some area flying clubs and past visitors to stop by, weather permitting. Now that spring is in full swing, any weekend is a weekend to take wing! Joining us will be a handful of fine automobiles from the Houston AMC Club! See our tenth raffle plane and buy your ticket! Raffle Ten is a 1964 Piper Cherokee 180, features a classic paint scheme, has a full leather interior, as well as a full line of Narco avionics, and is fully IFR rated and capable. Fly in and your aircraft becomes part of the display as we provide a way for the public to get up close to real planes and talk to real pilots. You may inspire someone to get their own wings! Any and every aircraft is welcome to join us, and enjoy the hospitality of our very GA-friendly Class Bravo airport. Just tell the nice folks on the radio you would like to park at the Museum or 'the old terminal'. Join us at Hobby and see what flies in! Admission is $7 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under and includes access to the museum, static aircraft and vehicle displays. Our regular history presentation will start at 12:30. A local roving food vendor will be by at noon to sell lunch - Flaming Patties has gourmet burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches. Admission is waived for visitors who fly in, or who drive in with a classic car, as well as for their passengers.
