Strategic Air Command and Aerospace Museum Announces October Events
The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum (www.sacmuseum.org) is holding a Planes, Trains & Autos event on October 27 and 28. The event, designed to educate museum guests on various modes of transportation during the Cold War, will feature muscle cars, hotrods, aircrafts, and interactive model train displays throughout the museum. Automobiles will be nestled around several Cold War aircraft heroes such as the B-36 Peacemaker, the largest production bomber ever built; the B-47 Stratojet, the first swept-wing jet-propelled bomber produced in large numbers; the B-52 Stratofortress, a high-altitude strategic bomber with intercontinental ranges; and the B-58 Hustler, the first supersonic bomber to set world speed records.
To add to the event excitement, October 27 is also the Museum’s Trick-or-Treat with Super Heroes Day. Super heroes from Midwest Heroes, a group that create their own costumes and volunteer for charities across the Midwest, will be at the museum to entertain guests during the Museum’s trick-or treat event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Museum educators will help young guests create their own super hero cape. Guests are encouraged to come in costume, bring a bag, and trick-or-treat around various stations at the museum!
Planes, Trains & Autos and Trick-or-Treat with Super Heroes Day are included in the cost of general admission; $12 for adults, $11 for seniors or military, $6 for children ages 4-12, and children 3 and under are free (all rates subject to tax).
