Wings & Wheels – HoustonSpotters & Museum Volunteer Appreciation Day
Dec 15 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

This month we turn our attention to those who turn their attention to airplanes and airports. If you love planes, we are right there with you! A plane spotter can be anyone from the families who enjoy Hobby’s public viewing areas, to folks who like to jot down tail numbers, to those who improve their own craft photographing these flying craft. Why do you like to look at planes? Maybe you love refining your photography techniques, and hope your shot is picked by a magazine or airline. Maybe you want to see how much of an airline’s fleet you can see, and later compare notes with your fellow spotters. Maybe you just like watching these things take to the air, and share that enjoyment with your family.

HoustonSpotters.Net is a website dedicated to plane spotting in Houston.

HoustonSpotters day is all about plane spotting and photography. Ramp tours of Hobby will be arranged (based on time and availability of airport operations), and groups of people will be taken around the field to spot planes and take photos.

We also like to recognize the hard work our volunteers do all year for our museum, whether helping our monthly fly-ins come together, or staffing the museum the other 290-something days of the year.

Stop by the 1940 Air Terminal Museum at Houston Hobby Airport and let’s see what flys in! We will have a few Ops tours scheduled so that you can see our great airport from a different angle. Be someone out standing in our field!

Wings & Wheels – Business Aviation Day
Jan 12 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Join us as we celebrate the role that aviation has played in business over the past century.

Business aviation day will feature aircraft that were or are used for corporate travel, such as the museum’s own Lockheed Lodestar.

This month’s Wings & Wheels is being moved back one week to accommodate a private event on the 3rd Saturday. If you would like to have a unique venue for your event, please check out our Private Events section, and contact us today!
