  The Haunted Hangar Storytelling Tour


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.

Kermit and Shuttleworth pals Aug-Sept 2012

Like everyone else, all of us at Fantasy of Flight stay tuned into Kermit's own Facebook page to keep up with his whirlwind adventures. Sounds to us like he's decided to stick around for Duxford, which promises to be another great show! And, wait a minute, did he just say he may be getting another aircraft!?!?!?!  Never EVER a dull moment!
