National Aviation Day
August 19, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pmFREE
On Sunday, August 19, we invite you to celebrate National Aviation Day with us by enjoying the museum, parking and all activities free of charge thanks to the generosity of Delta Air Lines. Soar into the first 40 years of flight on this celebratory occasion. One of the most miraculous periods of discovery will thrill you with iconic and history-making aircraft from Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation’s collection.
Innovation upon innovation built up to the Wright brothers’ historic liftoff and later accomplishments, like the creation of the 1939 DC-3 plane, lauded for revolutionizing global aviation while logging more than 12 million miles in less than a decade. Bringing us behind the scenes on the current awe-inspiring technological advances, our partners at Delta Air Lines offer a comprehensive look into commercial air travel with aviation-themed activities and presentations.
