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.

To mark one hundred years of airmail service, three Speedmails will depart San Diego’s Gillespie Field on May 13 and follow the Contract Airmail Route #8 on their way to HFF.

Join us for the traditional opening day of the flying season.

Indoors look for historic aviation artifacts and interactive family activities. Begin the day at 8 a.m. with a thrilling 5K/10K run/walk on the airport side of the fence as planes take-off and land. Enjoy a pancake breakfast offered by Mukilteo’s Red Cork Bistro. Speakers Bureau member John Fredrickson will engage history buffs with his presentation at 11 a.m. entitled “The B-25 Mitchell.” Tickets are $35 per family.
