Wheels & Warbirds at Cavanaugh Flight Museum is a special two-day celebration of fast cars and faster planes with food trucks, Sherman tanks firing and more.

Cavanaugh Flight Museum hosts this fall festival at the end of September, giving guests the rare chance to ride in the museum’s famed collection of vintage aircraft and military vehicles in a carnival-like atmosphere. There will be plenty of games and activities for kids, Word War II tank demonstrations, concessions, aircraft tours and great photo opportunities with aircraft that are not normally available for viewing.

Visit to see the unique collection of rare Vietnam-era Skyraiders, one of the few flying AD-6’s in the world as well as the multi seat AD-5 that guests can take a ride in. With over 2,000 horsepower and a bomb load greater than that of a B-17, the Skyraider proved to be one of the best piston engine aircraft in history, capable of radar surveillance, ground attack missions, troop support and even rescue missions.

Plus, on Saturday September 24, the museum will host the Pontiac Southern Nationals Car Show featuring some of the finest Pontiac muscle cars from around the country. Then on Sunday, the American Classic Car Show will celebrate classic and custom vehicles from every era.
