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.

FLIGHT OPERATIONS

November 14
Monthly Meeting of Volunteers
HFF, 6 p.m.

Are you ready to join a unique fellowship of aviation enthusiasts? HFF convenes monthly meetings of its volunteers to organize activities and give docent-quality briefings on aviation history and technology. Help us plan the 2019 season. An application may be completed during the meeting.

November 14
“Aircraft Aerodynamics: The Journey to Mach 3”
HFF, 7 p.m.

Aircraft Designer David Lednicer will discuss advances made between 1927 and 1957. The Ryan NYP “Spirit of St. Louis” represents advanced aerodynamic design at the beginning of this period. It could transport one crew member nonstop from New York to Paris. Thirty years later, the Boeing 707-120 could transport 170 passengers and crew along the same route with a single fuel stop at Gander, Newfoundland, flying at six times the cruise speed of the Ryan NYP. Also in 1957, supersonic fighters and bombers entered service, and aircraft manufacturers considered the feasibility of a supersonic transport. Aerodynamics contributed mightily to this growth in capability. Regular admission rates apply to the second presentation in HFF’s winter series on “The Grand Designs of the Golden Age of Aviation.”

November 17
