Come on by the 1940 Air Terminal Museum at Houston Hobby Airport on Saturday, June 15 and join us for another Wings and Wheels! Every month we help make it possible to get up close to real planes and talk to real pilots at a busy commercial airport!

Spring is blooming all across central Texas, and beautiful flying days abound. Are you a pilot? Make the 1940 Air Terminal YOUR destination, and enjoy showing off your plane at the original terminal building for Houston Hobby Airport!

Any and all aircraft are welcome on our ramp, so in pure fly-in fashion, we are expecting a variety of privately-owned aircraft.

Or enjoy the warm sun (before it gets TOO warm) and drive on up. We will have the Lone Star 356 Club joining us with their beautiful 356-powered Porsches shining in the sun.
