Take Center Stage for
"Letters Home"




At the sixth and final installment of its 2012 Legends & Legacies Symposium Series- "Letters Home: Love, Courage & Survival" on Friday, Oct. 12 and Saturday, Oct. 13, Fantasy of Flight will honor the art of letter writing and share incredible stories of wartime bonds preserved by pen and paper.


Some grew up as high school sweethearts before World War II separated them for long periods of time. Others met their "true love" in a foreign country and had very different experiences. But most were deeply connected to each other through written letters, sharing all their hopes and prayers. Hear their stories of love, hope, and support through one of America's darkest times.


Check out the exciting Legends & Legacies 2013 brochure to plan for events scheduled in the year ahead.

Kermie Cam: Fly in an Albatros over Shuttleworth!!!
GoPro - Kermie Cam - Albatros over Shuttleworth
A view not seen since 1918--as beautiful as it is rare!

A message from Kermit Weeks about this video: "You Are There! Come fly the Albatros with me over the beautiful countryside at Shuttleworth Old Warden Aerodrome in England. This plane is one of the magnificent works of art built by Peter Jackson's The Vintage Aviator Limited in New Zealand. This is my first flight over here with this aircraft, so let's take to the skies... Maybe we'll run into Gene DeMarco from TVAL piloting the Re-8."

For more of Kermit's adventures--both at home and abroad--keep an eye on his Facebook page. No telling what may turn up!

The Haunted Hangar Storytelling Tour

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.
