Sky King / Cessna Day!

Our first Sky King day was a great success! James Drury "The Virginian" and Jim Hodges were on hand to talk to people about their adventures.

It was a bit cool and windy in the morning, but quickly warmed up to be a nice clear day. Arrivals and departures were on runway 4, so we got a lot of planes taxiing by.

We also recruited a few new volunteers! We greatly appreciate the hard work and dedication of all of our museum volunteers! Visit our volunteer page for more information and to sign up to be a volunteer help preserve Houston's aviation history!

James Drury's birthday was the following Sunday, but we helped him celebrate it at Wings & Wheels a day early with an awesome cake! We also had a ramp full of Cessnas including a brand new Skycatcher flown in by local Cessna representative Teresa Morgan. Another unique plane on the ramp was a Cessna T-50 Bobcat; the type that was used as the first "Sky King" airplane.

The New Pioneers band played in the atrium throughout the day to a captive audience! They even sang happy birthday to James!
