Hundreds of aviation wonders are expected to be on display -- stylish homebuilts, classics from the 40's and 50's, exceptional vintage warbirds, and sport and ultralight aircraft. See a spectacular display of meticulously restored military marvels including the B-25 Bomber, P-51 Mustangs, Hawker Seafury British Fighter, P-40 "Flying Tiger", T-6 and T-28 military trainers, YAK Russian fighters, and Hiller Aviation Museum's vintage DC-3. Helicopter and bi-plane rides will be available for $50-$100.

The most curious and fascinating displays are the large and small engines collected and refurbished by members of the Early Days Gas Engine &

Tractor Association. Their amazing array of flywheel engines are enough to power antique washing machines, lawn mowers, and an entire a Lilliputian factory. On the larger side are several pieces from Roots of Motive Power's collection of restored logging equipment like spool donkeys and Buffalo Springfield steamrollers.
