3rd Annual Vintage Wings & Wheels

Vintage Wings & Wheels

Mesa, ARIZ. (October 26, 2019) – The Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum and Ramjet’s Speed Shop hosted the 3rd annual Vintage Wings & Wheels car and airplane show today at its Falcon Field Location.  Show goers were able to take in the classic cars and trucks, as well as taking in the on site displays at the the Commemorative Air Force Museum.

Vintage Wings & Wheels

“The Commemorative Air Force Airbase Arizona started with a “sentimental journey.” In 1977, a small group of dedicated folks broke ground at Falcon Field and in 1978, the Arizona Wing became the 10th unit of the Commemorative Air Force.  Within a few short weeks, Phoenix resident Mike Clarke donated a rare Boeing B-17G to the unit. Over the next five years, the colonels of the AZCAF wandered through countless junkyards and crash sites looking for parts to restore the plane to new condition, christening it “Sentimental Journey.”

This project sparked the idea to build a more permanent facility that could be used to preserve and showcase unique warbirds like “Sentimental Journey.”  After months of searching, Mesa’s municipal airport, Falcon Field, was chosen as the new site for the Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum.

Since opening our doors in 1978, countless visitors from around the world have descended on Mesa for this one-of-a-kind experience. Their interest has helped grow the museum into one of the most treasured attractions in the Valley, and with the support of our volunteer staff, we are proud to be the home of one of the largest Commemorative Air Force units in the world.

Together, we look forward to preserving and restoring authentic military aviation history, remembering the heroes who saved our country, and educating people on the hard lessons learned during perilous times in America’s past.”
