Join us in kicking off Props & Ponies at our Props, Ponies & Popping Corks fundraising event!
- Get up close and personal with 'Fragile but Agile' a rare P-51 Mustang with a confirmed combat history and an amazing lineage, going from the 5th Air Force to the Swiss Air Force and later to the Israeli Air Force!
- Preview two of Steve Saleen's personal collector cars - the 30th Anniversary and the George Follmer editions - one of the few chances to see these two cars together!
- Meet and greet with HFM pilots, our show sponsor & others
We're going big with this event for 2014 - celebrating the decades between the days of the P-51 Mustang in WWII and the launch of the Ford Mustang during the Vietnam War! Avenue Catering has put together a fantastic menu entitled, 'Better than C-Rations', featuring a host of delicious appetizers themed after the C-rations handed out to our troops. Skagit Swing Band will be on site with live music, so bring your dancing shoes! The Kitty Hawk Cafe will run a no-host bar featuring local beer and local wine. And debuting at this event, a special cocktail aptly named 'Earth Rising' in honor of the Apollo 8 moon shot and named for the iconic photograph taken by our founder and Apollo 8 crew member, Bill Anders.
Included in your ticket price, besides the good feeling you'll have for supporting your local air museum, is:
- your delicious food,
- the incredible music,
- a souvenir pint, wine or highball glass engraved with the HFM logo and your first drink. (Additional glasses will be available for purchase to complete your set!)
Popping Corks is a fun evening and a great start to the car show. We look forward to showing you around our place and thanking you in person for your support.
