Aircraft from between Charles Lindbergh’s 1927 solo crossing of the Atlantic Ocean to 1957 commercial Boeing jet service gather for Vintage Aircraft Weekend at the Historic Flight Foundation at Paine Field.

Aircraft arrive throughout the day Friday for the main event Saturday, with aircraft displays and a chance to visit with pilots Sunday.

Along with vintage-aircraft displays and demonstration flights, Saturday also features displays of vintage cars, military vehicles, bicycles, clothing and uniforms. Aviation history speakers start at noon, with food vendors, music and kids’ activities throughout the day.

Vintage aircraft start flying at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. They will include a Douglas DC-3 Dakota that supplied bases all over the world during World War II and was one of the most-used aircraft for commercial flights in the late 1940s and early 1950s; World War II fighter planes including a P-51B Mustang, the F8F Bearcat and a Spitfire fighter used worldwide from 1936 to 1957, including playing an instrumental role in winning the 1940 Battle of Britain. A P-51D Mustang used in large numbers in all World War II combat theaters, including by the famed Tuskegee Airmen, and a B-25D Mitchell Bomber are also among the up to 65 planes expected Saturday.

Friday events include a Big Band Dinner Dance with swing-dance lessons and live music, vintage attire encouraged; space is limited but may still be available. Call for information.

Sunday events are casual, with aircraft on display, demonstration flights, and rides in cockpit biplanes and the DC-3 available.

The Historic Flight Collection of eight restored 1927 to 1957 planes is on display Tuesdays through Sundays at Historic Flight Foundation, with several weekend flying demonstrations throughout the year.
