Whoa! #AvGEEK Alert!! We’re celebrating a century of Alaska aviation this year. There are special exhibits and events all year long. One of the big projects at the Alaska Aviation Museum is the restoration of the AWESOME 1931 “Pilgrim” aircraft (above, photo by Rob Stapleton). SNJ5-N3645F-01

The Alaska Aviation Museum is hosting a fundraiser next Friday, Mar. 8, 2013. The purpose: to get the Pilgrim is flying shape! It’s a big task. Stop in and see the work in progress. It is an epic aircraft. See the early photos of the Pilgrim flying fish, cattle and the occasional passenger. Perhaps this is where the “Flying Cattle Car” term came from. Huh? HAHA.

Stop by between 6-9pm on Fri., Mar. 8, 2013 (next week). The tickets are $45 ($40 for museum members). The ticket price includes food and drinks (must be 21). Plus–there’s more:

-Music by Lisa Good
