This will be their first year ever for SkyFair and will be an Everett Community event as well as a world-wide aviation event. Flying Heritage Collection will host several other planes from museums around the country, including Seattle’s own Museum of Flight and the Historic Flight Foundation.

Together, they will be flying over 10 vintage warbirds as well as operating and firing their WWII tanks and ground warfare artifacts. FHC will host guests from 10-5pm and offer food and vendor tents as well as a full day of educational and kids area events.

Roles that scouts can participate in include:

Checking hand stamps
Passing out flyers
Info tent (answering questions)
