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

January 16
“Aircraft Engines: Liquid Cooled to Jet Turbines”
HFF, 7 p.m.

Aircraft engineer and historian Barry Latter will discuss power plant advances made between 1927 and 1957. In the 20s, aircraft designs relied almost exclusively on air cooled radial engines. Water-cooled V-12 technology prior to WWII enabled more streamlined cowls but coincident vulnerability to a leaky coolant tank or line. Conversion to turbines enhanced aerodynamics, reliability and power. Join us to trace the progression in slides and exhibits. Regular admission rates apply to the third presentation in HFF’s winter series on “The Grand Designs of the Golden Age of Aviation.”
