Burlington, WA – The Heritage Flight Museum is pleased to be kicking off the start of the Berry Dairy Days parade with a fly by of vintage aircraft. The flight also signals the start of HFM’s June Fly Day on Saturday, 20 June 2015. Doors open at 11:00am and close at 4:00pm, with flights scheduled from 12:30pm to 3:30pm, hourly. Fly days are held on the third Saturday of each month from March through October and feature flying and static displays of Museum and visiting vintage aircraft, food for purchase from Judy’s Lunch Box, aviation-themed kids activities and docent-led tours of other museum artifacts and displays. The June Fly Day will feature a special flight of historic civilian aircraft including an Interstate Cadet and the North Cascades Vintage Aircraft Museum’s 1937 clipped-wing Monocoupe Special and short-winged Piper Voyager.

“We’re thrilled to be flying with our friends from the North Cascades Vintage Aircraft Museum in Concrete!” said Kate Simmons, Heritage Flight Museum Director of Programs. “It’s a great treat to have two beautiful collections of flying, vintage aircraft in Skagit County.”

The museum was located at Bellingham International Airport up until April 2014 when it moved to the Port of Skagit’s Regional Airport just off Highway 20. Regular open hours are currently Monday through Thursday by appointment, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm.

The museum allows visitors an up-close look at their memorabilia collections and a selection of flying World War II, Korean and Vietnam era including a P-51 Mustang, Douglas Skyraider, North American T-6, Boeing Stearman, L-13 Grasshopper, LINK Trainer and more. Unlike more traditional air and space museums which keep their aircraft sedentary, Heritage Flight Museum maintains and flies their aircraft.

Founded in 1996 by Apollo 8 astronaut Maj. General William Anders, the Heritage Flight Museum is a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization dedicated to the preservation and flying of historic military aircraft.
