The Washington Pilots Association, Flying Heritage & Combat Armor Museum (FHCAM), Historic Flight Foundation (HFF), and Paine Field will host the 23rd annual Paine Field Aviation Day on Saturday, May 19th. Join us to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force.


Your admission ticket gains you access into both museums (FHCAM & HFF), plus prime viewing for the flying demonstrations where you will see FHCAM's Spitfire & Thunderbolt take to the skies alongside HFF's massive B25 and Spitfire.

On static display in the tank arena at FHCAM you will see M4A1 Sherman Medium Tank, M3A1 Half-Track Personnel Carrier, Ford GPW Jeep, M5A4 High-Speed Tractor. As you journey through FHCAM’s expansive hangars on this fun filled day, you won’t want to miss our latest interactive exhibit, Why War: The Causes of Conflict. This one of a kind exhibit examines the major wars the United States has been involved in, exploring common causes and roots of military confrontations. Featuring large-scale touchscreens, conflict simulators, full-scale replica atomic bombs, and personal histories, visitors can choose how they want to explore the complex topic of war in an engaging and easy to understand way. Be sure to catch an engaging round table discussion with the Washington Pilot's Association at 11:00 AM at FHCAM!

At HFF you will see beautiful WWII warbirds on display such as the P51 Mustang, Bearcat, Rapide and more. Historic Flight features a collection of the most important aircraft produced between 1927 and 1957, all restored and airborne again. Climb inside the world's oldest B-25 Mitchell Bomber "Grumpy" or stroll the executive aisle of a Douglas DC-3 for the ultimate "hands-on" experience of a bygone era. Explore up-close, the cockpit, wheel wells and fully-armed gun bay of an extremely rare P-51B Mustang. Take flight in one of our vintage aircraft including the B-25 Mitchell, Douglas DC-3, T-6 Texan, Beechcraft Staggerwing and DH-89 Dragon Rapide. Learn about the history of the B-25 Mitchell bomber presented by John Fredrickson at 11 a.m. Stay to enjoy a fine beverage or two sponsored by the Diamond Knot Brewery. Parking is available at either museum with FREE bus transportation between the two throughout the day.
