This summer, some of the world’s most iconic and legendary planes will return to the sky and the public can see it all for free. Every other Saturday from now until October 18, the Flying Heritage Collection will host Fly Day events at Paine Field in Everett, Wash. The Flying Heritage Collection, owned by philanthropist Paul G. Allen, is one of the world’s great collections of rare World War II-era military aircraft.
Two planes from the collection will fly during each event and the lineup for this summer includes such famous aircraft as the P-51D Mustang, the Messerschmitt Bf 109 and the Supermarine Spitfire as well as some rare warbirds including the Polikarpov U-2/PO-2 and the Curtiss Jenny, two wood and wire biplanes.
A viewing area is available at the west end of 109th St. SW at Paine Field, Everett, Wash.—just a short walk from the collection's hangar. Parking is available in the Flying Heritage Collection parking lot and there is signage to the Fly Day viewing location.
