ABOUT THE EVENT
The Taste of Flight Gala is an annual wine tasting fundraiser and the primary source of support for the Planes of Fame Air Museum educational programs.
The Planes of Fame touches the lives of nearly 10,000 schoolchildren each year. For many of these children, the museum is their first introduction to the wonders of aviation. These learning experiences set the stage for a life-long interest in history, science, and technology.
PRESERVE aviation history, INSPIRE interest in aviation,
EDUCATE the public, and HONOR aviation pioneers and veterans.
FOOD & DRINKS
WINE & BEER TASTING

ACHIEVEMENT IN AVIATION
The Achievement in Aviation Award is presented each year by the Planes of Fame Air Museum. It recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the field of aviation.
The Taste of Flight Gala is a fundraising event. All benefits go to supporting the Planes of Fame Air Museum, it's aircraft, and programs which include veteran appreciation, youth education, and scholarships. A portion of this year’s event will also go towards the completion of our Korean War Memorial.
We would like to thank all participants in advance, your support makes all the difference.
A Tribute to The Forgotten War
The Korean War Memorial will be located in front of the Planes of Fame Air Museum. The memorial will commemorate the sacrifices of the 5.8 million Americans who served in the U.S. armed services during the three-year period of the Korean War. The War was one of the most hard fought in our history. During its relatively short duration from June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953, over 36,000 Americans died in hostile actions in the Korean War theater. Of these, 8,200 are listed as missing in action,
lost, or buried at sea. In addition, 103,284 were wounded during the conflict.
We have completed Phase One and need your help to complete Phase Two: installation of the F-86, educational display, and path.
