On Saturday September 3, 2016, raffle plane 9.0, N7980B was delivered to Miami, OK to the winner, Mr. Dennis Moore!

Our day started early, with a sunrise pre-flight.

We planned to make one fuel stop in KOSA – Mount Pleasant, TX, which, as we discovered, is also the home of the Mid America Flight Museum!

When we landed at Miami, OK, we were greeted by an enthusiastic winner and his son.   Mr. Moore is retired from the FAA and is an A&P mechanic and will have a lot of fun with his new plane!

The 1940 Air Terminal Museum would like to share a special thanks to Barry, Talia, and Karen with Smashing The Glass for featuring our venue.

In January, we had the honor of hosting these two special people’s wedding.  Smashing The Glass and Talia’s beautiful recollection of the event made for a wonderful article.

They were able to allow readers to get a true glimpse into the uniqueness and beauty of this wedding.

Thanks to the bride, groom, and all vendors involved, once again the 1940 Air Terminal Museum had an event for the ages.

Read all about it here!
