Heritage Flight Museum

05/17/2014 - 05/17/2015 - 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm at Heritage Flight Museum
15053 Crosswind Dr

Want to see our aircraft in action?! Smell the smells, hear the sounds?! Then be sure to visit us on the 3rd Saturday of every month between noon and 4pm!

We do this every month, year round and the only thing that stops us from flying is the weather! Sure Mother Nature can make it challenging, but we usually are lucky and our pilots do their utmost to get some flights out. It’s not unusual either to see other warbirds from around the region at one of our fly-days – some come from other collections, and others are privately owned and operated by warbird enthusiasts. We thank them for their support and hope that you enjoy the variety of aircraft on display!

We try to put out an array of flights, one demo every hour. From a single-ship fighter to a formation of T-6′s, there’s always something to see. We work with the air traffic controllers to make sure that we don’t disrupt the other air traffic at Bellingham and that we’re conducting our flights safely. Our pilots are careful to observe all the rules of the FAA and airport, and do their best to comply with the airport’s voluntary Good Neighbor Policy.

Our aircraft may be ‘vintage’ but given their rare and precious status, rest assured that they are meticulously maintained and carefully flown. Our pilots have thousands of flight hours between them and more experience in these aircraft than most. We love our aircraft, the history that they represent, and we relish the opportunity to share our passion with our visitors.

So come on out and pay us a visit!

121 Prospect Street

February 4 – A garden in winter can be a spectacular experience with a little bit of planning. To guide us through the process, Kathy Veterane of Tapestry Garden will set the stage for a dramatic winter garden.

March 4 – Speaker: George Berkompas. Bonsai represents the quintessential garden expression. Its practitioners must master the challenges of plant selection, environmental limitations, pruning prowess, diligent maintenance and patience.

Bonsai gardening is ideal for people on the move to either to smaller accommodations or those still evolving in their accommodations (i.e. apartment dwellers). Indoor and outdoor bonsai alternatives exist.

George Berkompas, a Bonsai master from Whatcom/Skagit Bonsai Society, will
layout the foundations in Bonsai.
