HELP US WELCOME BACK BRIGADIER GENERAL CHARLES MCGEE!
If you’ve even seen the film “Rise Above”, then you might recognize original Tuskegee Airman pilot Charles McGee. He is featured in the film encouraging a young person to ignore negativity, rise above the challenges and follow his dreams. McGee, a pilot with a celebrated career in the Air Force and beyond, has been an inspiration to thousands, speaking to people of all ages about his experience as a Tuskegee Airman and sharing life lessons that can impact people of all walks of life. Learn more about this year’s special guest here.
HUGE CAR SHOW
The Historical Vintage Car Club of Delaware is back coordinating the car show in 2021 and we couldn’t be more excited. All car clubs and car enthusiasts are welcome and we are looking for an even bigger event than in 2019! Pre-registration for this event is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as we anticipate it will sell out prior to the event. Participants can pre-register here. The first 200 pre-registrants are guaranteed a dash plaque for the show! HVCCDE is looking to host 300 cars and it is looking like that # will be met before event day, so make sure you register early!!
A GREAT VENUE WITH VINTAGE AIRCRAFT
As airshows have been pretty much shut down for the past year, our planes and pilots can’t wait to fly in and show us their aircraft. Join us at the Delaware Coastal Airport for a day full of fun! We’ll have dozens of aircraft ranging from vintage to modern along with vendors, food, and entertainment. THERE WILL BE NO PARKING AT THE AIRPORT. All parking will be at Sussex Academy and is $5/vehicle.
