2019 Win-a-Plane fundraiser
The 1940 Air Terminal Museum is raffling this vintage 1974 Beech Sundowner as a fundraiser. Raffle tickets for the fundraising raffle are available for $50 each starting on Monday January 14, 2019, and no more than 2,500 tickets will be sold.
The winner will be announced at the museum's December 2019 Wings & Wheels open-house (December 21, 2019), or an earlier Wings & Wheels if all tickets have been sold. The raffle airplane will be on display at the museum's monthly Wings & Wheels open houses, fly-ins, air shows and at popular flying destinations throughout the raffle.
This year's raffle plane is a classic 4 seater from the 70's! A 1974 Beechcraft Sundowner with classic cheat line styling and a clean interior to match!
NOTE: As of this year, we are changing the month that we give away the airplane. It will be in DECEMBER, not JULY!
