HobbyFest for 2008 was postponed due to the restoration efforts after Hurricane Ike.
However, we weren't done with the storms just yet, as HobbyFest 2009 was a very wet day!
It never quite stopped raining all day, and by the time lunch was served, water was creeping up into the hangar!
Museum volunteers made a mad dash to pick up anything that could float away and become FOD on the airport.
The prestigious American Institute of Aeronautics & Astronautics ("AIAA") has designated the 1940 Air Terminal at Houston’s William P. Hobby Airport a Historic Aerospace Site. AIAA began the Historic Aerospace Site program in 2000 to promote the preservation of, and the dissemination of information about, significant accomplishments made in aerospace. The 1940 Air Terminal is the 35th site recognized by AIAA, with others including Kitty Hawk, North Carolina (the site of the Wright Brothers first manned powered flight), and Tranquility Base on the moon.
