Tribute Flyover Spokane County

September 7, 2020

Historic Flight Foundation

Greetings from Historic Flight
Foundation at Felts Field:

For many years, HFF hosted Vintage Aircraft Weekend at Paine Field. Early this year we decided to bring back “VAW on Labor Day weekend at Felts Field. Then the coronavirus struck Like you, we are doing our best to make something good happen in 2020 within the context of CDC and state rules.

You are cordially invited to join us on Monday, September 7, for a tribute flight honoring health care professionals and first responders. This will be a one-day event with a morning briefing, afternoon flying, and a meal before returning to your base. Unfortunately, the public will not be allowed on the flight line. Should you wish to arrive the day prior, HFF will provide ramp space and reserve a room for you at Oxford Suites Spokane Valley, at our corporate rate of $96.

We have divided the route into two, coincidental circuits with faster movers flying a longer route. The idea is to create a parade of planes over key health care and public safety facilities in the greater Spokane area while also overflying large parking areas where families can safely enjoy the procession. The route will be widely publicized in advance. Local pilots will lead each element.

We hope you can join us We will adapt to any social gathering changes as required. The go/no-go decision will be communicated on Monday, August 31.

For now, stay well. Please advise your intentions at airborne@historicflight.org. If you choose to participate, please provide aircraft type and “N” number, cruise speed, a brief narrative about your aircraft for publicity, and whether you will be accompanied by someone we should include in our meal planning. We will reply with the current iteration of the briefing materials and hotel details.
