Pilot Destination Update - Jake Culpeeper's Cattle Co, Osage Beach, MO
"Went there yesterday and had the prime rib. The food and service was awesome. The restaurant is moving to another location a couple of miles from the airport and well this weekend was the last weekend it will be open. Suggest that you call in advance before you fly there... hopefully they will have a shuttle from one of the nearby airports when they reopen. I would definitely go back there again." - Submitted by Kevin.

Bring the family out to the Hagerstown Regional Airport to climb aboard and sit in the cockpit of the historic Fairchild Flying Boxcar and PT-26 aircraft. See exhibits and other museum aircraft such as the 1928 Kreider Reisner KR-31 biplane, 1943 Fairchild PT-19 WWII Trainer and Fairchild 24, all built in Hagerstown. The museum owns twenty historic aircraft, twelve of which were built in Hagerstown. These aircraft are a testament to the spirit, will and talent of generations in and around Hagerstown and serve as monuments to the men and women who built, flew and maintained these aircraft in defense of our nation in times of war and peace. For most of the 20th century, the building of airplanes played a major role in many families and communities of the Hagerstown area. Step back in time and experience a memorable flight in the museum's 1943 Fairchild PT-19 Primary Trainer! Thousands of allied pilots earned their wings during WWII in this historic aircraft built by Fairchild Aircraft seventy years ago in Hagerstown, Maryland. By making a $100 donation, you too can experience the thrill of open cockpit flying. The museum plans to have rides available after 1 pm, weather permitting. Event is rain or shine. FREE admission/donations accepted. Museum merchandise, books, DVDs, hats, toys for sale. FREE museum magazine and museum aircraft collection poster for all guests. “Open Airplane Afternoon” is a great time to donate items to the museum related to Hagerstown’s aviation past. The museum is raising funds to bring home its 1956 Fairchild C-123 Provider! See photos, read more about the aircraft and donate to the C-123 project at www.hagerstownaviationmuseum.org. The C-123 rudder and recovered parts will also be on display on the 19th. Directions: From Route 11 at the Hagerstown Regional Airport turn onto Basore Dr at Tony's Pizza and follow the signs.
