Record Book Sales In Reno

We saw a record turnout at the National Championship Air Races in Reno, Nevada. We sold our ENTIRE stock of "All Of Life Is A School" and "The Spirit Of Lindy" books. Seems we also sold all of our plush characters too! Thanks to everyone that came out to buy a book and meet Kermit. If you didn't get yours, not to worry - we have more! Click here to learn more about the book series and get your own copy.

We Did It - Thanks For Sharing 

WE DID IT! Thanks to all of you that made it possible. In order to celebrate and show our appreciation, one lucky Facebook fan has won a personally autographed copy of Kermit's book "The Spirit of Lindy". Wonder how long it will take to reach 30,000 fans? If you've already liked us on Facebook, you can still help us grow by sharing our page with friends.

What's That You Say?
  
We LOVE to hear what our guests are saying about their experience at Fantasy of Flight. Check out this  Trip Advisor Review from MimitoSix in Harrisonburg, VA.
  
" We visited this Museum today. WOW! There are so many airplanes of all types--from models to historic warbirds and helicopters. There is a tram tour to see some of the hangers and a trolley ride to the storage facilities for airplanes awaiting restoration. The entrance through a B-17 experience is quite realistic! Many simulators and aircraft to climb into. The staff is outstanding, especially "Rosie the Riveter" dressed for the part as she greets you and drives the tram! This facility is patterned after an older airport theme and you feel you have gone back in time with the airplanes! Don't miss this one!!!!"
