Historic Flight at Kilo-7 offers a collection of the most important aircraft produced between 1927 and 1957—all restored and airborne again.
Our mission goes beyond serving as trustees of an era. We want you to experience the roar of our F8F “Wampus Cat” taking off. Watch engineers at work restoring the aircraft to flying condition. Share the rush of viewing international treasures from all angles.
Whether you’re an experienced aviator, a student of history, or a newcomer to our world, we want to spark and fuel your passion—both for aviation and for epiphanies born from hard labor. Our heroes did not leap from the bathtub shrieking, “Eureka!” They scrawled a sketch on a piece of paper. Got interested in an impossible challenge. And then they dove into the work. The reward? Innovation that astonished both them and us, and that continues to change our world.
July 25-27, “Arctic Thunder,” Elmendorf Air Base, Anchorage
B-25 “Grumpy” will perform at “Arctic Thunder,” presented by Elmendorf Air Force Base and the Alaska Air Show Association. To get there, Grumpy will follow the Canadian coastline or fly inland via “The Trench,” weather being the deciding factor. This is a wonderful opportunity for patrons to join an air show ground crew and experience a “once in a lifetime” journey aboard a B-25 Mitchell. Other performers this year include the US Air Force Thunderbirds and the F-22 Raptor Demonstration Team. For more information, contact Visitor Services at 425.348.3200.
