100 Years of Flight in Alaska
For 2013 the Alaska Air Show Association is proud to celebrate the importance and promise of Alaska aviation by providing barnstorming and fly-in activities, bringing living aviation history throughout the state over the course of several weeks this summer. Our goals are to recognize aviation achievement and make available a tangible, mobile museum that educates and inspires aviation enthusiasts and citizens at large of all ages.
