Wings and Wheels Yankee Air Museum?

Post by alexp2805- » Fri Feb 15, 2019 12:12 am

Hey all,

I know this is not an airshow per se, more so cars and warbirds, but has anybody been to this event? I would like to some more input if anybody has any?

Thanks :)

No details on the YAM website. From what I can tell it's some antique cars and a few planes. YAM B-17 and WACO will be selling rides. YAM B-25 will be in Port Clinton that day. Wouldn't be surprised to see one or both of the Roush P-51s. Not overjoyed with the price but I still might go because I haven't seen the C-47 in the new paint. Always the chance something interesting will show up.

Per a recent YAM Facebook post among the warbird types attending are Wildcat. 2 Avengers, Skyraider, B-17, 4 T-6 and 3 T-34. No details given. They are saying 100 historic cars and 40 historic aircraft.

The Yankee Air Museum’s Wings and Wheels event from 10-4 is today! There’s a great lineup of vintage cars and a great handful of warbirds including two Avengers, four T-6 Texans, a Skyraider and more! 100ish cars and 40ish planes.

I had a pretty good time at this event today. Well rounded lineup of historic cars as well as vintage warbirds which was really cool. We even got to take a look into the hanger they are restoring for the new museum. Weather was also great! Photos below:

*ALSO* In the magazine they gave out they stated the museum is getting a new flyable plane for their Air Adventure ride program this summer! Any clues as to what plane they could be getting? :o
