Hope to see you and your family at the Aviation Heritage Park 2020 Hangar Party on June 20, 2020. Tickets will go on sale mid-May next year!
You know your family doesn’t want to miss AHP’s annual Hangar Party. This year’s event is Saturday, June 15, 5-10 pm, at the Bowling Green/Warren County Regional Airport.
Your ticket is ALL-INCLUSIVE giving you full access to a barbeque dinner, free drinks (including adult beverages), aircraft displays, and local favorite Bueler’s Day Off. The Tuskegee Airmen exhibit Rise Above, sponsored by PPG Aerospace, will also be open at the Hangar Party, free to party goers.
Air Force Gen. Lloyd W. “Fig” Newton, the Thunderbird’s first African American pilot and a retired 4-star general will be a special guest at this year’s Hangar Party. General Newton flew in the Thunderbirds with General Dan Cherry, a local Air Force veteran whose story is told at Aviation Heritage Park through the display of Phantom 550, the park’s first artifact.
The highlight of the 2019 Hangar Party will be the big “reveal” of Aviation Heritage Park’s recently restored Piper J-3 Cub honoring Glasgow native Willa Brown Chappell, a woman influential in breaking through racial barriers in the aviation field through her achievements as pilot, instructor, and activist.
Party gates open at 5 p.m. Tickets are available on this page and (cash purchase only) at Ford’s Furniture, Nat’s Outdoor Sports, Chuck’s Liquor on Three Springs Road, and Barbara Stewart Interiors. Tickets are $40/adults, $15/children six-12, five and under are free.
