Experimental Aircraft Day

This was a fantastic and record-setting Wings & Wheels event! It was described by many as one of the best we've ever had! We set a new record with 22 fly-in aircraft on our ramp at the same time.

In addition to the museum's raffle Cessna 175 (which could be yours for $50!), we had two Cessna 172's, a North American Navion, a Navy T-34C primary trainer aircraft from the Naval Air Station in Corpus Christi, TX, and 17 RV aircraft of various models. The RV series are the most popular kit-built airplanes in the world among home-builders.

They range from single-seat aerobatic planes all the way through four-seat versions popular with families who travel. Many of the RV's that were there belonged to the members of the Houston RV Builder's Association, and four of them came from a group called Falcon Flight, which is an all-RV formation flying demonstration team based near Ausin, TX. We even had a couple of RV's fly in from the Dallas/Fort Worth, TX area!

On the street side of the museum, we had more than twenty Porsche cars from the Houston Porsche Club, and several classic Chevrolets from the Houston Classic Chevy club. No matter your interest, Wings or Wheels, it was a great day for everyone!
