Email from the Miami Air Museum:Wings Over Miami Air Museum would like to share a cool opportunity that is happening out at the museum TOMORROW. (note: email was from yesterday).
Our Museum has received the news that some amazing planes would like to land on their ramp. The planes include: B-25 (2 of them!), F7F (x 2), P-38, P-40, Corsair, TBM and a Zero. This is short notice for the museum, but exciting news!


Please double check with the museum on Sunday regarding any changes in flight plans.
The planes are planning to be on our ramp tomorrow afternoon and fly off to their next stop Monday morning.This Sunday, March 15th, the Texas Flying Legends Museum will launch five

World War II Warbirds from Ellington Field in Texas for a 2,200-mile journey over the ocean to perform at the 2015 St. Barth’s Bucket Regatta on the French collectivity island of Saint-Barthélemy. They will join forces during their travels with four additional Warbirds from Lewis Air Legends of San Antonio, Texas. This historic journey will be one of the largest fleets of Warbirds to travel overseas since World War II ended.
