FHC Fly Day features rare aircraft
The Flying Heritage Collection's final free Fly Day of the year on Sept. 21 will be "Air War Over Russia Day." The FHC's Focke-Wulf Fw 190 A-5 and Ilyushin Il-2M3 Shturmovik are slated to perform. Both planes flying that day were rescued, as wrecks, from the frozen wilds of Northwest Russia. Amazingly, both aircraft are the last flying examples of their kind in the world. While a few dusty examples reside in museums around the globe, there is only one place you can see these two icons of the Eastern Front fly — Everett. Please join us for this historical day!
