VINTAGE DAY WILL BE HELD ON JUNE 6TH
This year we will start off the afternoon with the Freedom Belles who will arrive on the DC-3. This singing group will present WWII era music at the airplane and then move into the hangar to continue their songs. The Shoulderbone Creek Orchestra and the Bonnie Ridge Blue Grass group will entertain during the afternoon along with a jazz group titled The America Era Trio. A Parade of Flight will begin promptly at 1 PM. This will consist of a continuous parade of aircraft that will pass by the audience while the announcer explains the significance of each airplane. VINTAGE DAYS best represents the Museum's continuing efforts to re- create the Original Atlanta Airport as it was in the 1920s. People who lived in the 1920s experienced a fascination with the emerging technology of both the Automobile and the Aeroplane. Barnstorming, air shows, and flying circus events were popular forms of entertainment for families before TV. Food and refreshments will be available all day including Hamburgers, Brats, and a 1920’s Blue Plate special along with a full menu at Barnstormers Grill. Airplane rides in our vintage Waco biplane will be available all day.
