At noon, Saturday, August 6, 2011, the Flying Heritage Collection will host its annual Luftwaffe Day, highlighted by the debut flight of its recently acquired German Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-5. This event is a free-to-the-public aerial display held as part of the Collection’s annual Summer Fly Day series. The Fw 190 A-5 will fly alongside its German counterpart, the Messerchmitt Bf 109 E-3, as well as the Collection’s other German plane, the Fieseler FI 156 C-2 Storch.
The Collection’s Fw 190 A-5 is the only one of its kind in the world that has been restored to its original flying condition. This aircraft was originally slated for its public debut flight earlier this June, but was unable to take to the skies due to inclement weather. The restored plane’s inaugural flight will be noon, Saturday, August 6, 2011. The public is invited to this free event.
Luftwaffe Day begins at noon on August 6 at Paine Field – 3407 109th Street SW, Everett, Wash. 98204
Free parking is available outside the hangar facility.
Summer Fly Days are planned activities, but are subject to weather conditions, pilot availability and the mechanical condition of each aircraft. Fly Days may be cancelled without notice due to these factors. Please call FHC at (877) FHC-3404 prior to your visit to confirm this event.
