“Field Mess” Dinner at HFF, 6 p.m. (May 22)
The set-up will be authentic. (Field kitchen, army tents and cooks with attitude.) But the food will be gourmet. Please join us for an evening of history, camaraderie and fun as we welcome the crew of “Aluminum Overcast” to Paine Field and HFF. Weather permitting, aircraft will fly. Military vehicles and actors in period military attire will complement the B-17. Tickets are available for $50 at Visitor Services. Consider purchasing a table for your friends and colleagues.
