Santa’s Sleigh on Steroids? AvGeek Alert!

In Adventure, Alaska Travelgram, Consumer, Shopping by scott

Hey–is there an aviator on your Gift List this season? Don’t miss shopping at the Alaska Aviation Museum for special gifts for your aviation enthusiast!  

Choose from vintage aviation signs, old post cards, Alaska aviation memorabilia (think “Reeve Aleutian Airways stickers”) and aviation books.

While you’re at it, check out the great exhibits they’ve been working on! They’re renovating a “Pilgrim” aircraft–and I caught them buffing up the T-6 trainer (photo above by Randy Smith) .

The aviation bookstore is especially compelling. Would you like to win a copy of “Flying Cold”? It’s a great book about Russell Merrill and early Alaskan aviators. 

Just tell me what kind of plane is hanging in the lobby of the Aviation Museum. The answer is on the website . Or–better yet, just go out to the museum on the shores of Lake Hood and check it out!!

Just send me a note with the answer, along with your name, address and phone number. I’ll pick a winner!

Get a gift membership to the museum for your AvGeek! Purchase an individual ($45) or family membership ($60) that includes not only free admission for 2013 but 15% off in the gift store and 10% off on facility rentals!

Winter hours: Open 9am-5pm Wed.-Sat., 12-5pm on Sundays. Say hi to Shari–tell her I sent you!
