nightFlight Phase 3

October 29


The Oct.1 nightFlight was thrill packed! Among the anamolies was a physical contact in the Carrier Deck as well as a  manifestation of the emotional vortex and shadow shifts in the Officers Club. And the recorded evidence is still under scrutiny. Without a doubt, the evidence is growing! Plus guest investigators were treated to an astonishing surprise--an utterly unique artifact of paranormal history.


Only one more opportunity to have the nightFlight experience this season. Reservations are now open for the October 29 nightFlight investigations. Click here to make your reservation now.


Apollo Paranormal Investigations will be sharing information about nightFlight at Spooky Empire Ultimate Horror Weekend on October 7-9 at the Wyndham Resort in Orlando.

Slalom Course
Puts the "Roar" in
Roar n' Soar

 Slalom course car


Since the very beginning, one of the most popular features at Roar n' Soar has been the Slalom Course, a sanctioned competition sponsored by The Jaguar Club of Florida and Sun Coast Jaguar Clubs. Novice and skilled drivers of all makes and models register. Many of the exotic vehicles competiting are seldom seen on the road, much less in competition.


On the Slalom Course, drivers compete for the fastest time while navigating three configurations within a single cone-lined course located on the hangar ramp. Smooth handling is the key to victory, as hitting a cone adds a hefty two-second penalty on the Roar n' Soar course, which typically takes less than one minute to complete.

Event organizer Ginger Corda, president and slalom manager for Jaguar Club of Florida, points out that it is exciting for spectators and drivers alike, "For drivers, it hones skills and plays to the competitive impulse. Drivers compete in their class and also with against their own past performance.  They have a great time doing it and watching others too!"

Storytelling Tour

Featured Daily in October

Fokker DR-1 Triplane


According to Fantasy of Flight's ace storytellers, "Aircraft are vehicles of intense sensation."  Are those sensations responsible for all the spooky tales that haunt old airfields and follow vintage aircraft? What can we learn from them?


The daily Haunted Hangar Storytelling Tour unspools entertaining yarns that are a little eerie and also quite inspiring: Lindbergh's companion spirits, the ghost of the Red Baron, "The Lady be Good," and the dreaded "Dead Stick Landing!"


This special tour is offered daily throughout the month of October.
